Not sure if it is really needed. I tend to go to "New Posts" which list posts from last time I was on. They are not per thread topic.
When I first came on, or was working on something like the interior, I might have gone to that specific thread, now will do occasionally when looking for something specific.
When doing a search I'll use 235 in the search. Actually doing a google search with "-Trifive" I get a good response of appropriate threads.
I would be okay with a separate section IF, the posters kept it strictly to engines. Don't want to wind up with questions and comments about suspensions, brake, body stuff in the I6 section just because it is an I6 car.
Im in the six stuff looks great with multi carbs and such, so why not if it doesn't interfere with the rest. Ya can always tear it down if it dont work out, but ya ll neva know if it works unless ya put it out there. My two cents an counting.
How could it possibly take away from anything else?
There are sections now that only appeal to a limited audience - like gassers, modifieds, models, detailing, convertibles, insurance, etc. Certainly those sections are very important to some, but not everyone. Having them available doesn't make life difficult for those not interested in those subjects but it's nice to be easily able to find camaraderie with those of like mind.
I don't know how many members here have sixes but Id say it's not any less significant than member interested in the sections mentioned above.
When in danger, when in doubt.
Run in circles, scream and shout.
