    Just need cash for paying bills and this is my newest saw. I rebuilt an old 044 and have been using it instead.

    I figured a bgd would blow more than 160. Could you tell any noticeable gains after the mods? Nice saw.

    I didn't run the more than a tank before modifying so i can't really tell if there were noticeable gains, plus i dont do any timed cuts or anything. As for the compression i didn't hold the throttle open or really pull a long time to try and get a max compression, so 160 is conservative, but its not going to be super high like the builder here who shave off some off the cylinder base. I think it will also build more compression with another 5 tanks.

    Either way saw cuts real strong with 25" bar, and super fast with a 20" bar and real light setup
