Special search terms?

Quote:
The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: v6
I understand that including really short search words in any search string puts an added strain on the server, but would it be possible to add certain words to a list of exceptions? Quite often I find myself searching for something relating to the V6 engine only to be thwarted by this limit and having to trawl through loads and loads of irrelevant threads

Re: Special search terms?

And Q2 isn't a searchable term either.

Re: Special search terms?

Nicky, just as a side note, there is a dedicated Engines Lounge, so in the meantime, you can perhaps focus on that one to begin with

Re: Special search terms?

Even searching just the engines lounge can produce loads of superfluous results though. For example if I were to search for 'V6 misfire' I'd also get a load about twin spark, boxer, JTS, JTD etc etc misfires. It's very annoying not being able to restrict it any further.
