    I have been trying to find info using the search. If I type in something, like 700r4, it'll pull up results that have zero to do with this. I searched through pages of stuff and the results made no sense? It's been like this for months now. I'll type in dana 60, and some random chit chat post will come up? Plus the results only seem to go back so far then stop? Like a limit on the date back they will go too. What am I doing wrong? I can't be the only one having search act like this? Thanks.

    I did notice that if you set the button for body and subject to subject only , it posts up related posts. If set for subject and body, every time the word you are searching for is used , it will show up in results. I just tried "timing" with subject only and got lots of results back that were relative /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
