Default Tech Info Move

I think it would be great if the tech info was moved from their current place into a new forum... It would make the searching process easier.

For instance, right now, if I want to find info on what oxygen sensor I need, I can go to tech info, type in o2, and get zero returns. If I type in Oxygen, I get...

Quote:
1. 1992 Vin # L PCM Diagnostic Codes Codes for the 1992 Vin L bonnevilles.. SE & SSE.. Non Supercharged
2. 1992 Vin # 1 supercharged 3800 ECM Codes ECM Codes for the 1992 Bonneville Vin # 1 3800 supercharged SSE and SSEi
3. Car/internet Jargon dictionary A list of commonly used terms in cars and internet talk, and their meanings. (submitted by many, edited by few)
4. 1988-1991 Vin # C ECM code definitions These are the ECM trouble codes for the 1988 to 1991 3800 Vin # C Bonnevilles...
5. 1987-1993 ECM Code Retrieval Procedure for reading ECM codes for 87-93 (DeathRat)edited by willwren
6. Air density/boost levels
none of which are what I'm looking for - the listing of part numbers for different years of oxygen sensors. by moving tech info to phpbb, I would have the ability to search through the content of the post, and find this...

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=49

plus, it would increase the chances that those people who actually search before they post will find the appropriate tech info information.

of course, this would be a forum that only mods (or admins, or whatever) could post in, so that we can't gunk up all of the posts with our arguing, questions, etc.

thoughts?

p.*.

for the life of me, I can't figure out why I can't get the o2 data, unless I do a search for 'sensor data'. o2 doesn't work, O2 doesn't work, 02 doesn't work... what gives?

Techinfo will be subcategorized when I have time, or Jeff does. Until then, there'* really no point in debating it. I'm not trying to shut down creative ideas, but I also want everyone to understand that it'* not happening this month.

Geez. You wouldn't believe it. I know Jeff is buried at his new job. Been there six months now. And he'* not updated his journal like he used to. I'm swamped. HP owns my soul now. And Don? I can't keep his work schedule straight.
