    I don't hate it. I just think it's silly for a work saw and the gain (that may or may not exist) isn't worth it.

    If they were expensive or hard to get I would agree, but the thing's gotta have a carb. It definitely doesn't make it run worse. The larger filter is nice too.

    I would certainly have no problem sending a saw to Huskihl on the strength of the rave reviews.
    I don’t want to volunteer MM’s work but he did a beautiful job on a 346 jug for me.
    Also, I noticed there’s a builder on the other forum from Canada, does anyone know him?

    I have 4 or 5 ported 346's and have switched all but one over to the 199 carbs. I can feel the difference. Well worth doin.

    Huskihl is a great guy to deal with, that builds a mean saw. Trust me.........you want be disappointed in the performance when you get it back. I just need to send him all my saws so he can put the xs spell on them. One saw at a time slowly but surely lol.

    No argument..it's just my opinion.

    I don't think the gain is HUGE.

    But the larger filter is nice..
