Karan,
we can understand some of your thoughts but not all.
If you think it is difficult to answer stupid questions, how do you explain the same to your customers. I am sure most of your customers would not be as knowledgeable as you in the technical and mechanical department. Rather than showing your frustration, you could simply have gone ahead and posted the graph with a note : "Request all bhpians to not post any questions or queries regarding the graph as I may not have that kind of time to do the needful. People interested in knowing more details are welcome to dyno their cars at my workshop. It would help them understand in a more better way". I am sure everyone would understand that it is difficult for the tuner to spend a hard time modding the car and then answer all questions in forums. No one is questioning your abilities as a tuner or try to teach you a thing or two about modding cars. We all very well know that the modding scene in India is not as mature as in other countries. Everyone tries to learn from the gyan available on the internet. Isnt that what internet is all about. If someone reads about an article on a modded swift elsewhere on some other site and compares it with your mod, he would surely have questions regarding the differences that he may have seen. Please understand that the person is not questioning your talent, he is simply trying to learn more.

No offense. You are a reputed tuner. Take that good reputation ahead. And if you get the time, please browse other online car forums. There are tuners who answer all dumb questions willingly. I am sure for every 10 questions posted, 8 would be answered by fellow bhpians, you could take care of the rest. That shouldn't be so hard.
There is always something to learn in life. Again no offense.

From what could very well have been one of the best topics/threads of late/ever, this has decayed into a collection of rather juvenile stances. If the owner/tuner is not receptive to people who genuinely are interested in the works displayed, I dont see the point of publicizing such a work at all.

Maybe we should close this thread. I guess the tuner learnt everything by himself

@ K.S, this forum is all about sharing knowledge, and learning new stuff, if all the gurus here would just behave as stuck up as u are doing now, the main point is defeated. What international secret are u trying to hide?? And if u just want to put up your graphs, u have ur own site right? What are u doing here?? And regarding the so called stupid questions, there are many of us here who don't know much about turbos n stuff, but would like to learn something, not for bragging, but as they say, knowledge is wealth. U may know stuff about performance mods n all, but u go into the I.C.E or some other section of the forum, some questions that u may have may seem to be stupid to the gurus there, but they still answer them. And till date, i've never heard anyone in this forum say, "dont ask stupid questions to me!"

Anyways, its your attitude, and not my problem how u flaunt it, All i've gotta say is, uve got a good reputation going, pls dont ruin it with arrogance like this.
Anyways, i'm outta this SICK thread!! byee!

I would first want another tuner to make a car and run it on my dyno,i will want to ask him questions,then I will reply to alll ur questions
I dont know anything about turboes so no questions from my side atleast..

Oh yes,for the mathematiclly challenged,105hp equates to 123BHP
guys whats stopping u from using the dyno I was hoping to see lots of cars with dyno charts..was hoping to learn some interesting stuff from the guys who have modded cars..

Its not the attitude that i have,but belive me, its the frustration that i have against people who only talk what they have read on the internet.Only 3-4 bhpians,i know u actually have some practical knowledge.

Some are sitting in some country and boast of a fast car and tunning knowledge.But most of the times,i can make out they have actually"googled" some thing and put up the posts.

If any one would want to know more about any cars that has been done by me,they are most welcome at my place.I will show them the dyno sheet and explain to them what ever they ask.But please dont expect me to type out long explaintions of the dyno sheets.

I request people to come and use the dyno to get a better understanding of their car`s power in relation to the time and RPM.

What more can I say :(
wow just read all the other posts also.
Karan ..u must be really hating this forum

I understand your frustration but that was totally uncalled for.

You've thrown down the gauntlet man. And there are people who are going to take it up. Believe me, the revolution is coming.
