Not to feed the itch too badly but you can send your saw off to a saw builder and really wake that thing up.

Not uncommon for a shop to hot rod a 460 or 461 so that it out cuts a 066 or 660. Mod a 660 and she will really cut. I know a guy in Tennessee that works on saws, and he would be the only one I would send a saw to.

Some shops will even adjust the timing which requires cutting an offset key.

Dual port is a good step.

What kind of chain did you get?

You can certainly tune the saw yourself after a little research. It isnt really a once and done type of deal. Best to learn how so you can make occasional adjustments.
