I've got an 038 that I need to replace the muffler. It's the original one, so I believe it's single ported. Bailey's sells a dual ported one that's half the price for a single ported muffler I could get from the local repair shop.
A couple of questions:
1) Does extra porting cause the saw to run hotter? (because of higher rpms?)
2) Does the carburation need to be adjusted?
3) If the replacement is not a Stihl brand, would you be leary of using an after market product?

Thanks
