Default PPB - Thread Title Consistency

My idea is to create a definition for the title of Proven Power Bragging threads to help quickly identify the setup used to make the power. Something like

Turbo: Turbo PSI: Injectors: Fuel: WHP: TQ

So the title of the thread would look something like this:

GT35R: 20 PSI: DW1100: 92 octane: 400 WHP: 385 TQ

Then searching the thread titles would be far easier and quicker and may even lead to a better database of results.

It's just an idea, input welcome such as should it include engine CC?

I like knowing what kind of engine I'll be reading about when I look at the thread title.

Also, there are several times when threads are about times rather than dyno numbers, in which case this wouldn't work...

I think it is a great idea, as there are so many other places to post for 'question' based posts.

IWSTI has a good starting point.

I'm not sure if the injectors need to be in the title. That is a detail (along with fuel pump, etc).

Might I suggest

Engine/Car: Turbo: Turbo PSI: Fuel: WHP: TQ:

EJ257/07 STI: GT35R:20 PSI: 92 octane: 400 WHP: 385 TQ

It may do. It would be good if the poster put in the same mod list and power in the title with an extra ending field of the 1/4 mile time? When I see a 1/4 mile time I want to know what's under the hood.

I think it maybe better to have engine size vs injectors so the new proposed title format would be.

Turbo: Turbo PSI: Engine CC: Fuel: WHP: TQ: Timeslip (optional)

I also have no idea how this would be "policed"

I'm going to go against the grain here.

Nasioc is too moderated already, and this would just give Unabomber another reason to call the OP a noob and lock the thread

Considering how much dough this site has to rake in every day, it would be a walk in the park to code some php for a new title layout, I don't see it happening though, given the management's history

you'd probably wanna include "ET" in the title.....then you could search "20g ET" and get only timeslips or "20g whp" and get dyno sheets

having the actual times/traps and octanes is nice, but wont be in anyones search

Indeed some management would be helpful. On the whole, Nasioc doesn't seem that moderated. Of course I don't post too many noob questions either.

I think the primary reason for the format is to make searching work better.

It is true that mods often comment on people not searching, only to discover how hard some searches can be to do.

Obviously this requires the input of the PPB mods.

it also comes down to people search ability too.

i bet most people dont change it to "search titles only" so when they search gt35 they get every thread cause in a td04 dyno thread someone started talking about gt35's on page 10.

Agreed. Some things can be found with the right search pretty quickly if you pay attention to how you are searching.

We could lose the octane but think we should keep the WHP/TQ ET's as this is PPB. No one wants to read about a GT35R car doing 13's

Engine/Car: Turbo: Turbo PSI: WHP: TQ: ET

Without mods involved this idea is going to quickly die.

My only input is that I find the IWSTI version of this setup to be infuriating for some reason. It just takes all the personality out of the forum. The google based search works quite well.

Oh, and that whole herding cats saying comes to mind.

+1 for this. I don't think theres anything wrong with the iwsti style once you are in the post, cause it gives a quick hit list of the specs on the car before you look at the graph. I just think iwsti has it organized badly so its hard to find the info with a quick look.

I think iwsti has lots of good things we should do and this is one of them. Yes it comes down to the searching abilities but the guy/gal that posted could have used some weird explanation or missed a few things. I think things like this should be easy to find and not have to spend 2hrs looking for a 18g turbo output on a dynapack or mustang dyno or whatever your looking for. Just my 2 cents

This is a good idea but I think it would be an even better idea if mods were a little more enforcing on what is true "proven power bragging" instead of all the speculating "what do you think I'll run?" or "what kind of power should I expect?" or even the threads that consist of a parts list but never seem to be updated with the finished product whether it's a dyno chart or time slip.

Question

Assuming that management is open to actually making something like this happen.. why don't we make a poll and see what the users of this board want?? I personally don't care either way, I'll deal with it regardless, I can see pro's and con's either way.. but lets lay it out, and vote on it.. then at least the majority gets their way...
