353 tweaking ?

As per title having now run my 353 against a 254 I'm wondering if there are any little mods that can be done to give the 353 a bit more go. I'm guessing that it can be ported and tweaked similar to the 346xp as they use mostly the same parts and if so what would the rough cost be to have something like this done
Cheers tractor62

Re: 353 tweaking ?

I have worked on a 353 but not tuned it. I thought they were pretty gutless compared to the 346 but it may be that I am spoilt with my own saws.

The MO will be pretty much the same as with the 346, I am pretty sure it won't go like one but am sure it will go better.

One very simple option is just to fit a narrower kerf bar and chain that will make it more lively!
