Hi all. Just a newbie here. One got a 029 that I would like to get a little more power out of. I read on another site that I can drill holes in the muffler and it'll run like a MS460. Could this possibly be true? Do I need bigger jets or anything? I also saw a muffler on Ebay with a stainless steel pipe in it. Are those worth the big bucks they go for?

Please take it easy on me. My first saw was a Poulan Wildthing. This 029 is the first pro saw I've ever owned. Thanks in advanced!

Do I have to take the muffler off first?

Don't even need a muffler. Just run a spark arrestor over the exhaust port and BAM you've got the invisible muffler mod :rock2:
