I think it is important to support new members. This Forum has existed a very long time with a great deal of participation (i.e., many posts on many subjects). New members may ask na´ve questions and fail to search as completely as senior members would suggest. That is no reason to embarrass and humiliate someone who comes here to learn about their new car.

I'm taking the "High Road" and allowing a lot of room for our new members. --Spike
This is exactly why I left. I was treated poorly when I started and hate seeing other so called "NOOBS" get the same.*

My reasoning for 'flaming nubs' matches pretty well to the quote in your sig - if you show that you've researched your question and couldn't find a definitive answer, or want clarification on the multiple options you found, that shows that you respect the rules of the forums, and to a certain extent that you respect yourself (ie I don't want a handout, I can figure this out on my own). If you come here expecting someone to take *their* time to hold your hand when you could have spent just as much time to find the answer yourself, then you, in my humble but always correct opinion, deserve whatever you get.

Nah- that's no flame job. His question got some answers, although probably not the ones he wanted.

Yeah, saw that. But actually it had some legit stuff in it showing he at least knows his way around diagnostics. I thought as you did though.... "siphon". Hahahahaha.

I don't know how you guys tolerate this stuff.. the whole concept of 'sub-forums' seems to be lost on almost everyone. How much crap can be dumped into the general Z forum on a daily basis.. ? I'm sort of returning to the forum now that I've quit facebook. It's. going to be a bumpy ride.

Well, that's why they pay us mods the big bucks by keeping us busy moving threads into their proper cubby holes. It's a never ending battle. Hahaha. And welcome back to the land of lost decorum.

Wow, it has been quite a minute since I've actually sifted through here. I was kcee91 way back when ("09"). To sum it up, I've gone back and forth with this car. Everytime I drive it, it's always a refreshing feeling. Bought new in 2010 stock and here it is now.

As for the posts, it took awhile for me to find OG members posts on top shelf quality parts. For instance, I just replaced my old Southbend Stage 2 daily with an OS Giken STR2C. I only found two members running this setup. It truly hurts to see how many 350s are out there beaten to crap and when it's time to fix it up, the owners always complain how expensive parts are. I think alot of new members don't read through the Top 100 questions sticky.

This will always be a keeper.....

Turning your exhaust tip(s) into bunsen burners would make tailgate parties interesting.
(I'm picturing marshmallows or hot dogs on sticks roasting while the broseph mans the gas pedal)

Quick someone make a "Cool Flames Bro" Meme.

new owners always want stuff for free. all the time he is complaining about borrowing a tool instead of spending the $100, he could have had it done by now

Not declining, declined.

F'n A..... I'm really getting to hate this place. For every decent new member, there's 99 bozos who should have just stayed on Facebook's monosyllabic, misspelled Z groups....
