    On converting stupid people. This silly J-body forum has about a handful of intelligent (in terms of mechanics) people, the rest have no clue at all what they're doing. I think some well formulated posts might help them understand.

    Let me give my most recent example, some poor kid wants to rebuild his 4-banger...


    I must commend him, he's trying to grasp the basic concepts, and tries to give his pertinent information. I give a brief lesson on how you make an engine produce more power, and cover some key topics. I think over time, some well-formulated posts might get stickied by the "mods" there so the collective intelligence level might be raised some.

    Anyways, my response:



    I may not know much about "rollin on 20's" on "baggin" but I can definately educate these guys on basic engine building. Maybe get them out of the "lookie at my shiny intake and catback!!!" mindset.

    Gosh, who am I kidding.... I'm trying to run up a muddy hill.

    I always knew there was a forum for everything, but a J-Body forum?

    Yeah, and one for F-bodies, N-bodies, you name it.

    About the neatest piece of information I found on the J-body one was a guy that took the IRS out of an N-body and mounted it in his J. It's stupidly simple to do, I was really impressed with the research he did.
