David Thorne: Thanks...you are one if the few that drop actual info...and explain the why's...Thanks!
Patrick Germond: Thank you. Please post more chainsaw work.
TheDanielroberts: The lateral porting is limited to a percentage of ring circumference, not the flats of the piston. Whilst air escaping is certainly not desirable, ring snagging on a port too broad will have destructive consequences. Most modern broad ports have a bride support to eliminate ring snag.
ladarius mastin: would that also work on a 2 stroke r c engine like fuelie 23cc
Dixon Cider: thanks for the video! i think i will continue with minimal porting via "gasket matching" and cleaning up cast marks.
ackermj1: I've never had a chainsaw on a dyno, so I cannot say. In all reality, it is hard to quantify. The power difference is most noticeable in the way the saw runs; Revs faster and smoother, especially when in the cut. More efficient combustion. More power.
smith17041994: How much power do you gain from porting?
Fredrick Metcalf: Good logical, sensible presentation......not complicated....QUESTION: Can I add a bigger piston & cylinder to an Echo CS440.....I might want to play around with this & learn something.....Thanks
2LateIWon: great vid
michael freeman: Sounds like some one is mad .
Snatch19882: You have some of the basics, but i'am missing a lot! Changing the timing /compression will give you most of the performance gain.. not just widening the ports. But the crappy exhaust is a huge restriction on this motor! Some sort of improved home made resonance-exhaust would give this engine a huge performance gain!
CC Specialty Tools: Nice video on the very basics. If you ever need specialty tools for doing a lot more, and doing it quite a bit easier, just contact us. Glad you mention the gasket/outlet matching, I harp on that in some of my vids. Also you show that the radius, or curve at the roof and floor of the port are maintained, that and chamfering are important to the ring life.
Tyler Lacasse: Thank you for sharing this video. I always like things like this. I am 18 and have always loved things that go fast and make sound. Obviously my dad doesn't want me taking apart his $20K hot rod motor, so I experiment on small motors when they come my way. I have always wanted to port something and in this case it's an old Pouland Chainsaw. Great point you said about porting in relation to the engine timing and the side of the piston. Thanks again for sharing! This has helped me a lot.
joshua rugg: im porting my 359 this week. when you spoke about the intake gasket i thought, "well my saw doesnt have an intake gasket" so what do i do? should it be fine to leave it be and just go about porting normally? the 359 is an interesting saw ;)
PoCo Power Sports and Small Engines: do you port the exhaust the same way you do the intake ports? by which i mean the max width of the porting in relation to the piston?
Tipene Hopa: How well would a stihl ms660 with a standard big bore kit with a dual port muffler and maxflow air filter fitted
ackermj1: Yes. Start simple. Mild abrasives and work slow. Start by taking off all of the casting imperfections in the intake and exhaust ports. This should give you enough gains to be noticeable. Remember to match your gasket and muffler accordingly. Good Luck to you!
hellboy700r: Can you tell me what is the safer porting for the ms 460? I wanna try it but dont want to rebuild the motor in the 5 next months.
