Default New Mechanical and Maintenance re-organization

Yes, Hector and I were brainstorming again. Trying to make this busy place make more sense. Things we changed tonight:

Old Mechanical and Maintenance forum is locked, and is being moved into new categories.

"Specific Models" category has been renamed "Mechanical and Maintenance".

Some categoreis in the former Specific Models category have been renamed, or at least better described to reflect their new role as Mechanical and Maintenance.

A new forum has been added to Mechanical and Maintenance to cover Superchargers, Turbos, NOS, and intercoolers. All the stuff unique to the standard drivetrain.

These changes were made to help clean up this growing board. Trying to make it easier to post, navigate, and search for the info you need. We had alot of Mechanical and Maintenance related info scattered around the board. This should gather it in one spot.

Great job! You can use BA'* ideas too if you want. This will create better "harmony" between the two forums.

It will also make it easier for people to find info on both sites. You will already know where to go to find the info.

Ok, I see a neutral and a don't like it in the poll. Let'* have your thoughts down in suggestions on this. I'd particularly like to know everyone'* thoughts on breaking out the 'Forced Induction' section. We did that, because just about everything else is common to the other drivetrains, and we could keep the bulk of the Mechanical stuff where all could find it.

I have no problem with it Will. Its good to brake up the engine types into N/A and SC + turbo and NOS and other goodies.

Mech and Maint was getting cumbersome, this is better, it allows access to relevant info

You can hang with me, Ol Timer, Turtle, and Ty. Maybe we'll make an age-restricted forum

I think the "forced Induction" section is a good idea!

I don't know, seems like too many places to go to now. I liked the old maintence area because everyone congregated there. I visit this forum much more than the attitude forums because of this.
