Change search parameters?

Can we change the parameters on the search function to allow for 3 letter words?

I have been looking into changing my top end oil and have heard a specific thread referenced and they said it was titles TOP END OIL which i cant search for.

i think being able to search for things like this would help prevent reoccurring threads.

We are looking into changing the search function.

Changing your HPOP oil is completely and totally unnecessary. Most of it gets changed when you change your oil

Its pointless because its the exact same oil that flows through the rest of your engine. Most of it drains out the pan with a regular oil change

I think it'd be a good change too.....

There are dozens of "3 letter" searches that can now NOT be made

Like what's a...


IPR
IDM
PID
EOT
EBP
???? ect,ect,ect,,,


(these are just examples, I know what they are it's just that you can't search for them)

Thumbs up 3 letter search functionality PLEASE

I too agree that 3 letter searches are important - I am trying to find information related to the following terms tonight and just thought how useful this would be:
MAP
MAF

Some others that I have tried in past include
TPS
CPS

Admins, this would definitely be useful, even it it were a special button you had to check to include 3 letter words in searches (just to prevent unnecessary resource use when someone types in "how to rig the bypass and line" and the server finds a zillion "how" "the" "and" in posts. )

I will be looking forward to this functionality as there are just too many parts that have 3 letter abbreviations...

Thanks

Yes, please change this.

For a temporary fix, use google and add site:powerstroke.org to your search.
