Is it a stock rebuild ? ported ? muff mod. only ? I think these will come into play as well. JMHO.

Steve

It is a stock rebuild. How do those come into play? Isn't the max rpms a saw can handle listed by the manufacturer so even if I modded it wouldn't I want to only tune it to factory specs. For this saw it is 12,500 rpms, if not then what can I safely go to with the saw, I plan on squishing the jug by taking out the gasket and using a gasket maker, and at most a muffler mod as well.

Just say a stock 372xp is set at 13.5K max wot rpm. I have seen woods ported ones hitting 15K-17K out of the wood and the plugs look perfect. 
Now I would prefer to be on the rich side and clear up in the cut for cutting wood all day.

Ok got you, at that point is it a combo of playing it by ear and seeing what you can get away with or is it something that experienced guys just know?
