    when I try to search based on engine size I get a message saying "5.7L" does not meet the minimum word length for the search, so it is ignored. Engine size is a really helpful thing to include in a search, and I don't think this minimum word length is helpful at all...

    Is that fixable Steve? I've noticed that too.

    Shorter searches take up a lot more resources of the website. If it were to be lowered, everyone would experience a slowdown across the entire site. That's why there are even limits to the frequency of searches (if not there should be) because searches kill db speed.

    I'll look into it, not sure if it's a good idea or not to make a change right now. I understand the issue, but it might cause other issues to try to make the site more usable in this case.
