Modification Garage FAQ

Postby downest » Fri Mar 09, 2007 7:31 am

There are a lot of stickies in all the forums, and I find it kind of annoying to have them all at the top. There are also a lot of good write ups that don't necessarily belong in the How-To section.

So let's get a FAQ going, I'll start with the current stickied stuff. Please DON'T post comments or whatever, just a link and a description. I'd like to keep as much as possible on the site here, so if you see a good write up somewhere else, ask the author if they mind if you copy it here, or better yet invite them over here and ask them to post it! Remember this is for non-stock mods only, I've got one going in the Stock Garage as well.

An asterisk* indicates an external link, please include that with yours as well.

I'm updating the FAQs this week since I'm more or less done with school and I'm bored. I organised the links and added some more from the How-To section, it's still looking a bit sparse. If anyone wants to add something or even just dig one up out of the archives, I would appreciate it (and I'm sure other people would too).

hey, I've seen this FAQ format before.... lol 8)

you're missing the three rules:

Three Rules of this Thread:

Do not add anything to this thread.
(If you would like to add any useful info to this thread, PM me or El Vap first.)

Do not COMMENT in this thread.
(if you think this thread is great, wonderful, but we don't need to hear about it or need it bumped, its already stickied and at the top of the forum.)

If you have a question, start a new thread. This is not a help request thread.
(don't IM me either, I wont answer any technical questions over IM.)

i think i just broke some of them too... :twisted:

(feel free to delete this too :P )

Haha tyson, I was waiting for that! I actually changed the section names so as not to infringe on your intellectual property :P

I don't think we need the rules, at least not yet. These are the first replies that have ever come to the thread. Once there is more on the FAQ I'll probably clean it up, but right now I'm concerned with getting more stuff going. If people want to PM me or post links, either way is fine. If I didn't want people to post, I'd lock it, and anyway I think the general intelligence and common sense level of this forum is a little higher than that on... the other forum.

It's an external link, hence the asterisk. Unless someone finds or reproduces that page, it's going to stay broken.

Almost every OEM ECU basemap in .bin files. Good info for those trying to learn how to chip ECUs.
