330t to a 360t top end
« on: December 30, 2017, 02:26:43 PM »
The little 330t echo is more fun than my mid size saws but after its muffler mid and retune i held it wot a bit too long. So now after it's warmed up it gets a bit cranky and doesn't idle so great. So more tuning and inspecting. I see a bit more scoring on the ring than i like and some on the piston as well, cylinder pretty good. I can't help but think about adding some displacement and the 360t cylinder seems like the obvious place to look. I was wondering if anyone else out there has done this or considered it. How did it work out? Or what convinced you not to do it? Parts look easily interchangeable for both models and the sale of a good jug (after the upgrade prooves itself) could offset the cost.  :new_year: smiley_alcoholic_01

Never done it, but seems easy enough to replace top end with 360T. Price would keep me from doing it for only a 3cc bump. A 360T top end is ~ $140. I'd clean up the 330T cyl and get a piston kit. Heck, that is $50. Maybe just a ring would suffice. Never seen AfterMarket Echo stuff - maybe it exists and is on the dark web.

 Not much if any Echo aftermarket parts out there but a lot of OEM parts are half price on the big 2.  On you tube there's a vid od a CS330t running real close to a Stihl 200t both muff modded so I wouldn't  worry about the 330 power.  Steve

Dougand3: the swap does seem easy and easy is tempting. A 3cc bump is tiny but also approximately a 9% increase. For a simple swap it seems undocumented.
Ladylake: I am happy with the power to weight ratio. I am also fascinated by megalomaniac thoughts of more more more.
