Don't take the flame answer as the only answer. It is always better to be very detailed in your questions regarding things you don't understand because it shows what you have read and what you do understand and that there have been some attempts at comprehending. Don't be afraid to say thank you to the guy who flamed and ask the question yet again.

This x100.

"For people with big track experience, is it beneficial to run a higher a/r turbine housing?" is a lot more likely to get a real answer than "Jus got a junkyard T25 anyone know how many psi it can handle?"

And the term "allofit" was born.

Happens all the time.

Q: "what should I do for my pcv valve"

A: **** off and search.

Q: "I've found these 2 options that people have suggested (explain options) but I'm curious about why (some specific aspect) of optipn A is better than option B"

A: Detailed explanation with some help

Nobody likes answering the same question twice, ask a new question.

I will add that most of the MT members I have met are really good people who would likely pull you out of harm's way at risk to themselves in reality.

What can I say, having lived in frozen *** new enlgand for a few years? Everything is better here.

Maybe I should have said senior MT members. I am certain that you and Lars would pull out of a hole if I were in need. Not saying you would stop someone from detonating their motor, but I have seen you do it here. I have never met you guys though, so WTF do I know.
