Re: Facebook

Its real easy to past the 10,000 mark when building one of these engines and its still NA. and your right there are a lot that buy one first then find out the cost of getting them running and keeping them running. Your ether a good mechanic or have deep pockets to own one but that goes for most street rod also.

Most of those guys don't realize that there is only a limited advantage that can be gained with bolt-ons. NA engine horsepower is expensive, much more expensive per marginal horse than forced induction horsepower.

There was and is still ongoing efforts to repair a lot of the damage that was done over there by that individual. A lot of really good people have went out of their way to help remedy the situation. I won't get into my personal stuff but dealing with all of that was one of the worst experiences of my life. There are a lot of knowledgeable and good people there but most efforts have been to try and repair what was done.

Re: Facebook

I am new to this world; but like others, not much for FB.

In the spirit of this forum, I just donated (via PP) for cause on the "Official" fund raiser link.

Re: Facebook

Thank you. I don't like the FB format. This is still the best place for information and help. The How-To Docs has got a tremendous amount of information that many members miss. Good luck.

Re: Facebook

With my face, I'd never go on Facebook. I love SVXes (SVXi ?) I was on the site before Yahoo, then the Yahoo SVX site and now this one. So I guess I'm just an ancient old timer.

Re: Facebook

This site can't go down! It's a wealth of knowledge! Let me know what I can do to help. A text based site like this sjould be cheaper to maintain these days. Are you running the server yourself or are you paying a service company?

Re: Facebook

Just out of curiosity, what does it cost in terms of hard dollars to keep this site running on an annual basis?
