Stihl MS-880 vs Husqvarna 3120 XP

This is something I have been thinking on for a long time.

Stihl closed the production (2010) of the famous 090-AV with its 136 ccm and 12 HP.
We had to try out Stihl MS-880. That a down fall.
In 2010 the MS-880 had some changes on carburetor, cylinder and muffler. This was done to make it "greener".

I checked out Husqvarna 3120 XP. The Norwegian importer told me that its possible to purchase the "African muffler". It will increase the engine power.

I need to get your opinion and your experience if you know these models
Do you know any other brand that can be competitive?

Dont know much about the Stihl but that 3120 is a WORK HORSE!  LOTS of power!
Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is watching!
