    I have messed with exhaust port size a little ,different saws have different exhaust tones ,example my 440 with triple ports is not all that loud ,but the 461 with just dual port was loud to me ,my 441 i tried a total stock muffler ,but the hissing noise was annoying and hurt my head so i opened it up till was still quiet but whistle noise went away ,and is is nice to work with now .

    Yes sir. With pipes you can direct exhaust where you want. Mostly.

    I would love to dyno these things and see if you loose some low end grunt from opening things up too much.

    You could do timed cuts with same bar chain and that would give a good idea of what’s what.
