does anyone
have any performance tips as to make this saw really run ?

 Thanks again everyone,
 Duhnis
 

The 038 Mag I have and the ones I have seen all have dual port mufflers. I opened mine up a little (cough - cough) and re-tuned it. Made a small difference in that she holds rpm in the cut better. After the MM to the 038 Mag, my 044 (in stock trim) could still hold slightly more rpm in the cut with a 24" B&C ....

Throw on a 28" B&C and they were even, except the 044 was more smoothe. 044 with a MM was ahead on all fronts. I ported each one and the 038 has gobs of low end grunt while the 044 has gobs of power up high. I cured that by running a 7 pin on the 044 and an 8 pin on the 038 Mag when running 28" and under. When I go 32" - its 7 pin all around.
