search problems?

I havent been on here in a while, but I tryied to do a search for "396" and "402" and both times it comes up with zero threads. Now i know there are plenty of threads out there so am I doing something wrong here or what?

Re: search problems?

The search has never worked with 3 character searches... Try using "big block" or "SS396". You won't find much on 402, it's more a Chevelle thing...

Really? I can type in 396 or 402 at team chevelle and all kinds of threads come up. I know this site has more small block combos than big blocks, or at least it seems that way, but i figured plenty of camaro guys have these engines under the hood. Guess ill try a different search.

Re: search problems?

We go throught this a lot! This goes back to 2005 when Al was running both sites, his words are in this thread... https://www.camaros.net/forums/showth...ghlight=search

I don't know what's different between the sites, I just know it's never worked here. Try "350ci" or "396ci" along with my other suggestions. Sorry, that's the best I can do, I don't have access to look at site settings and it would take an act of congress to get someone else to look into it.

Re: search problems?

Yeah anything under four letters numbers or any combination doesn't work so you have to do 396* and get a lot of stuff, or you can limit the search to 396 by using the Google box in the search drop down which searches here at camaros.net first for the item then goes outside the site.
