Post Hey Alex, when are we going to split up the WRX Technical/Na turboed board?

I do not know about everyone else, but I know that the poll was way in favor of splitting up those boards. It is getting highly annoying to sift through the Turboed RS's and the WRX's. What is everyone's thoughts on this one?

"highly annoying"? What information for either car wouldn't apply to the other? Any tuning or modification would work for all the turbo cars.

I think people are missing how very similar the "different" models really are.

The best justification for splitting the engine forums is that people tend to be very self-centered when posting. They post related to their specific car and often don't provide the relevant details.

When I first got my MY00, I remember reading many threads ultimately related to MAF issues where the poster never specified that he was talking about an MY99. That's one stupid example, but I can easily imagine posts in the Turbo forum where a WRX owner just ASSUMES everyone knows he's talking about a WRX and not a turbo 2.5 or 2.2. Likewise, there are going to be a lot of upgrades and kits that are specific to the WRX and won't do a damn bit of good to anyone else. I can see it now:

"Announcing cool, new stage 7 boost control, ECU, downpipe, wastegate kit."
"Sounds great! Send me one for my car!"
"Ummm, forgot to mention, WRX only."

Frankly, I believe the community will get MORE pissed off and divided if this sort of thing happens. Let all Subaru owners come together in area of universal interest, but when I need tech help, I don't really need to wade through a bunch of WRX owners who have nothing relevant to say.

And guess what? When there ARE technical issues of common interest, when there IS a WRX part that might be useful on my car, nothing stops me from going over to the WRX forum to check it out.

I see no downside to splitting the forums.
