    Brad, are you going to hang on to the original non-wrap handle?

    While a step in the right direction, what you have tested is not a true representation of what I do. Just removing the divider in the intake boot leaves a huge restriction right in the middle of the intake port...far from an ideal scenario. I also modify the strato ports inside the cylinder. Will this make the difference on this model? I don't know. I didn't take the time to test it. I wish now that I would have. I guess I'm going to have to do another one of these to find out. And yes, I will post the results, good or bad.

    As said many times, this modification was developed on the 261 and proven again on the 241. This 462 is just an over grown example of these previous two, so I went straight to that recipe. Obviously, inquiring minds need to see it tested on this model as well. I get that. I really do. I'm not in the same position I was a several years ago developing these mods, but I'm going to make an effort to build another one of these saws with the strato intact. I want to test the fuel efficiency as well.

    “Any fool can criticize, complain, and condemn—and most fools do.”

    “most people listen not to hear, but to respond”.

    Well..... in this case there are those who watch with no hope of learning. Rather, only to find some critique of the process.

    So..... while a few of us keep learning and improving a few of you will keep loading those rubber bullets. Firing them from some non descriptive basement at a rapid 23 WPM.

    There’s big difference between honest inquisition, and snarky, passive aggressive questions with an obvious air of condemnation. The likes of which we’ve all grown weary.

    Brad and others- you’re crazy for putting your work out there. To be critiqued by every human who’s ever changed a spark plug..... but I’m glad your doing it.

    You don’t have to agree with or replicate a porters design. But we can certainly observe, appreciate and learn something along the way.

    I see what you did there Brad. You mixed Slick50 into your bar oil for your "ported" saw video. Trickery I say! ;)

    Brad, your a class act. A much better man than I am. I remember what Scott and Redbull did to you over at tree buzzzz. Fabz is a child as well.
    Some of us appreciate your contribution to this site over the years. Carry on...
