    The general port layout and 23 degree valve angle limited the old Small Blocks. Aftermarket heads have been reducing that for a while. First there were 18 degree heads, then 15, then 13, but those were race parts that mostly didn't fit production style manifolds. GM beat the entire aftermarket with an 11 degree valve angle on the LS cathedral port heads.

    Nowadays you can get AFR 205s that are hitting 300 CFM with the old 23 degree valve angles.

      Finally have minutes to waste on R3v again. Pulled the turd out for the last month and the Neon feels like a sloppy piece of shit in comparison. I knew it would, but not that much. I would call the Neon the turd, but it's worth more and nicer

        Sounds like its time to sell the Neon and dump money into the E30

        Make R3V Great Again -2020

          The body work alone is enough to make me not care much about it. I fucked it up years ago, and now I live with it. Replacing the trailing arm fixed my toe in, but that rear quarter is pretty rough. And it's at a low point, so I assume that's frame. Talked to a guy I know that works at a body shop and he estimated 8-10k.

            How do websites like amazon and ebay (or any site that relies on their search function to sell products) have such utterly awful search functions/refinement criteria/categorization?

            I'm on amazon right now looking for HDDs that are at least 1TB and if I stray from their "recommended" items, the entire results turn to garbage - 99% of it is miscategorized trash like clothes/keychains/trinkets.
            None of the refinements on the left are useful unless I want to search by a certain manufacturer, but I can't select multiple. No way to select capacity or form factor, which should really be the bare minimum...
            Even after I search by a single manufacturer, there's a lot of junk, and if I sort by price the results are only kind of sorted by price? Almost like it couldn't be bothered and stopped halfway through.

            Every large website seems to be moving away from useful refinements and toward "take my recommendation or fuck off"
            Same thing on walmart's website (which was always trash though). Fb marketplace, kijiji and autotrader have removed certain functionality like search radius.

            don't suck, let me buy yer shit

            rant over.

              You already understand, they want you to buy what they want to sell you, not what you need or the best value proposition for the customer.

                I didn't have any issue searching for HDD's.
                Now, a few times I had to click on the pulldown menu next to the search bar, it would go to something like "kids clothing" in the middle of a search. Once I put it back on "General Items" or whatever their catch-all is, it did fine.

                I used the filter options on the left side to further refine as well, for 5400/7200, 2.5 or 3.5, size etc.
                I do things.

                  You're not wrong.
                  I did figure out how to select a filter for multiple mfrs, not sure what I did wrong before but it would just open a new page.
                  I found more or less what I'm looking for, but it was a painful process.

                    Yeah, I bought a WD black 4TB 7200 RPM before my PC came, and when it arrived it only had 2.5" HDD expansion bays.
                    Y Alienware? y u do dis?

                    So, I'll be buying an 8TB external.

                      Holy shit. I thought you were trolling me, but apparently amazon.com and amazon.ca are completely different. Why would you have this functionality built in, and then disable it?

                      Edit: their mobile app also has the filter options? apparently it's only their actual .ca website that doesn't?

                                eBay's been sucking horribly for years.
                                Home Depot and Lowe's are historically awful for not bothering to tell you they didn't have anything that matched your results, then throwing their entire inventory into search results (654,789 results for class 12.9 metric bolts? I don't think so...).
                                Amazon is sort of good at parametric search.

                                Summit is really good at parametric search

                                The absolute best anywhere is McMaster-Carr, though. No one else is even close. It continually stuns me that Grainger and MSC think they're actually competing in that space.
