When I joined this site there was more testing of mods being posted. We do less of that now it seems. Is that because people consult all these older tests? Or is it because of some other shift in the use of EM?

Personally when I do a mod that’s already been tested, I don’t bother with ABA testing (example, when I put on the smooth wheel covers), or sometimes even a load test at a specific speed... in other cases, reversing a mod for a ABA test is simply too bothersome (like when I did the ported intake manifold)

I guess should I do anything groundbreaking, I’ll have to stop being lazy and actually test my work...

I am about the same. But cars are all different. The testing focus is one of the cooler features of this community.
