Ya. I read that article and saw nothing of Twin Turbos. Actually I just searched it for "Twin", but I still didnt find it. What talked about Twin Turbos in his post. (Or the one I saw.)

I believe this is what he is referring to:

Coincidence?

Who cares? He took the time to research something, find an answer and pass it on. Of all the things -Twhat- is guilty of, this one really doesn't make a bit of difference. This is just another case of someone stirring the pot. Too many f*cking drama queens here.

I gotta give you credit Wally. I don't always like or agree with your posts but they're always intelligently written and sometimes the words make me think. It's a pleasure in the monosyllyble world we live in.

Like you I suspect, I lament the dumbing down of society. I know I can be controversial and God forbid wrong in my posts, but if it makes people use their noodle then it can't be all bad.

I must admit that too many of our members here keep on getting slapped in the face with accusations of copy and pasting things onto the forums. It really doesnt matter. This is a online source, I see no reason why people cant just get some info from some place online also. We need to try to stop all of this drama. This forum is about Cars not Drivers!

Well I can't agree with copy 'n paste responses unless it's deadset obvious. Not only is it mindless, often wrong and dishonest, but it irks people like me who find their compositions bandied around as investigative articles compiled from exhaustive testing by Joe Bloggs internet mechanic and part time race fan extraordinaire.

I have even found applets and calculators written by me on sites and they haven't even changed the declared variable names!

I could take another tack and just hammer the poster with questions about the plausibility of the content, but that invariably ends up with the member being made to look like a complete and utter fool and me demonised.

Why per chance do you think I found this site?

I must admit being found out is punishment enough, harping is unnecessary.
