I got this jug today.  Is this considered a closed port?  Its also 45 mm.  What can I do to this one to hop it up? Different piston?

Yes it is closed port.

The ports look pretty good as they are.

The piston with the cylinder is rather shiny. You might consider a new piston so the engine would have better throttle response and better overall performance?

I cannot believe alsled's luck! Won the entire bottom end and the c/p for under $30 and it has a closed port jug on it. Of all the stuff that could happen Alan comes out smelling like a rose!

Good on ya, buddy!
