There really needs to be two seperate forums.
One forum for stock turbos k03,k03s,ko4, etc
One forum for aftermarket/big turbos

I think its a great idea. It would ease a lot of the tension in here. Many of the BT boys have a bit of an arrogance about them, and seem to forget that we all came from somewhere. The 1.8t technical forum was never intended to be the BT elitist forum. Its a technical forum for the 1.8t engine. Thats it.. In short a place for ALL 1.8t owners to go for technical advice. Whether a question has been asked a million times shouldnt matter. Not for nothing the new search function is the suck, and new owners shouldnt be chastised for asking simple, basic questions. I say give all the BT guys a place to hang out, and allow the NEWBs and less mechanicly inclined guys ask there questions that may annoy the more experienced among us. Personally I would hang in the BT forum. But the rest of you need to be more patient, and civil to the average owner/enthusiast
I agree, general regurgitated misinformation (which was the biggest problem in here years ago) has been overwhelmingly replaced by widespread saltyness.
Personally I think the new search is miles better than anything this board has had in the last 5yrs. I don't have a problem finding much of anything in here now.
I just got back on here after a hiatus, and didnt realise that the new search function actually works. My bad. I have been known to dish out my share of flamage, but its been obscene in here lately. I feel terrible for some of these guys who come in here asking simple questions, because (A) they are trying fix their damned car, or (B) are simply newbs and dont know any better. Sure some guys are just plain lazy, but that isnt what ive been seeing lately. This problem has been exaggerated by a certain NEWB that flames away and trounces this forum as if he were 35-40 yr old seasoned vet; the reality is that this fool is simply a spoiled rich kid who went BT right off the bat, and feels that he is somehow entitled to berate others because mommy and daddy have a fat balance sheet.. Im speaking of one individual in particular.. He knows who he is
