Yeah the forum software needs some love, itís quite a few versions behind. Imo itís far enough behind that upgrading is going to be a complete pain in the ass. The software stack (webserver, database, application) all need to work together and then the forum software sits on top. And then there are forum plugins that sit on top. Making sure everything plays nice together can be difficult. Add a decade of data and it could be a lot of work.

It works currently - and thatís what matters. Maybe I should pester Mark to see if he would like some help breaking it.

Okay, got it!  When I did it I was outside all day cleaning the car and I think I got heat stroke! :icon_lol:

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Mark just got back from Ireland.  I dropped him a message on FB but it often takes awhile to hear back

What bugs me is when you are use to something and they change it.  Like windows outlook it went from an easy copy paste to click on attachment and browse for picture, like WTF how is that easier??
Anyway, doesn't that turbo look huge?

Forzfed...you're in tough. Patrick Rubio is back. 231 with a set of heads...6766.. .and a AC 19930 and alky and Erics 5.7 alky chip. Patrick's had 2 stints at Precision...an d has forgotten more about turbos than most will ever learn. I've followed him closely over the years...he's one of the best in the business. Link is what he's up to. Goal is mid 10's. I'm curious to see how easily he attains it.

It's a biggie. You've got the cubes to push it.

My main concern right now is getting the car running!  If it goes fast that is just a bonus! :cheers:
