i did make a second one for the V2 sub-forum that someone requested... i don't really use it much so i'm not sure if it really works... if you try it out and it seems to work i might make one for you for the V1 sub-forum.

but i find it better to search the whole forum ... but that's just me

thanks for the feedback
N/P For your case it makes sense but for me I don't really give a flying you know what about the other cars and there issues! haha

I just used CancerJCC's search method w/ Google and it works great. I had a question about cleaning and oiling my Volant CAI - the threads I found were very old (would probably never have found them just browsing), but they answered my questions perfectly.
Glad it worked for you. I actually now have a Chrome tab bookmarked that goes straight to Google and I only have to add what I want to fine in front. It is what Andringa said on the first page and I find it works quite nicely.

(In Google search bar type this and then bookmark it)

FYI: The Google "site-specific" search seems to be broken. Their documentation suggests that it still works, but I haven't had any luck. All my tries result in "Your search... ...did not match any documents."

I even tried links that others posted in this thread and no luck... I haven't ruled out that I'm doing it wrong, but wanted to share.

For example, I was trying to find out info on K&N topics specifically in the CTS-V V1 forum, and the following search yielded no results:

K&N site:http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-cts-v-series-forum-2004/

Any ideas?
