ThirdGen.org has just been updated with the latest forum search engine, which is still in beta. You'll notice a few key differences from the prior search engine. The new search engine can now sort by Relevance. Sorting by Relevance is the default option, however, the ability to search by Date is still available under the Advanced searching options.
For more details on our Search Engine, please see the announcement:
Thanks for your understanding.

This Thursday, 10/04/07 at 10:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time, we will be switching over to a different network provider.
The change will only take a few minutes, but due to delays inherent in DNS, you may be unable to access the forums for a few hours while the new machine IP addresses propagate throughout the Internet.
Because computers and browsers may cache DNS information longer than they should, you may have to restart your browser and/or your computer in order to access the forums after the change.

On 9/24/07 ThirdGen.org will be unavailable between the hours of 1:00PM - 3:00PM Central Time as we perform a scheduled maintenance. Thank-you.

A couple months ago, we released a new ThirdGen.org forum style called "TGO Classic". Veterans of ThirdGen.org may remember the look, as "TGO Classic" resembles as closely as possible the look that ThirdGen.org's forums appeared as for most of it's time online, up until 2006. If you would like to view ThirdGen.org's forums using the "TGO Classic" style:
It can also be previewed using the Quick Style Chooser at the bottom left of the boards.

We're always looking for ways to improve the site and we're hearing everyone's suggestions. A big feature that has been asked for over and over again is to reduce the time between search. After doing extensive research and finding a method that was both lightning fast AND reliable we have instated a new and improved search function for ThirdGen.org. Instead of waiting a full minute between searches we have gotten that time down to 15 seconds. So by the time you're done sorting through the results you're ready to search again with no restraints.
Another vast improvement to the search feature is the speed and returned results. Instead of having to wait 20 - 50 seconds (or more) for your results to be returned, you are getting your answers in second or even fractions of a second. This is great!!! You may have also noticed that the returned results seem to be more relevant to what you are looking for, as well as more current and active threads. All in all, this new search feature just rocks and we hope you enjoy using it.
Another little feature that was added was the size that LARGE images get reduced to when you insert them directly into a thread. Instead of 700px wide you can now view your images at 800px wide, which is usually what most people upload their images as. If an image is larger than that and you wish to get a more accurate view of what it looks like, go ahead and "Right Click" on the image and choose "View Image". This will take you to a page where you get to view the image in it's native resolution. Anything that makes ThirdGen.org more user friendly is what we're striving for. We hope you enjoy the changes as much as we do.

ThirdGen.org has a new RPO decoder! Dirk sent us a program that he had one of his friends write for ThirdGen.org some time ago. The new RPO decoder requires that you install the program onto your computer, and it requires that your computer have .NET framework installed. Right-Click on the link to save the TGO Decoder to your computer, then install it.
Member Sonix sent us a technical article, SBC Camshafts – A primer, that explains small block chevy camshafts with pictures.
Finally, member firebirdta84 sent us a copy of an article from an Autoweek 1980 magazine: 1982 Firebird and Camaro Preview.
