HI all,

first post for me here although been lurking for some time.

I have a very low hours 480CD that I use for occasional milling- mostly canting larger trees in the woods that i cant get my bandsaw too. I have basic knowledge of porting 2 stroke engines- mostly high performance snowmobiles, I'm thinking of just cleaning up the exhaust port as the 80s era casting/ machine work is sub par.

I find the muffler to "sound" quite unrestricted as is. ive searched many forums and have noit found much other than that this saws a dog, don't mod it, this saw is awesome etc...

whats everyones thoughts on cleaning exhaust port up, should i ditch base gasket or install new to keep stock compression to prevent excess heat?

clean port-gut muffler-ditch base gasket?

Clean port-ditch gasket- leave muffler unmolested?

clean port only?

leave stock?

sorry for long post,

thanks all for your input.
