Default Is this site still alive, and who's running it now?

It's been many many years since I've been on here, was one of the hard core members from back in the early days of diy turbo and ended up wandering away from the site after it had a nasty split about 10 years ago. I know Chris Harris (Xenocron) had taken it over back then, does he still own the site or did it pass hands a few more times again? Any more of the OG's still around? It seems like almost all forums are pretty much dead lately thanks to Facebook, and occasionally I run into a few of the old members I remember by name on there in some of the tuning groups or whatever. Kind of a shame to see such a great resource as this was just fall to the wayside.

Anyway, I guess I'll reintroduce myself, I'm Jim from PA and still currently do all my own diy turbo and tuning work, most currently on a 2006 MINI Cooper S that I converted from a puny m45 Eaton supercharger to a Super 60 setup running 22psi. It's quick and fun, and honestly reminded me of my early days on here back in '03 (definitely getting old, almost 40 now so you guys can do the math lol).

Look forward to hopefully seeing more on here, and hopefully passing some info along as I have time as well.

It's been sold to Internet Brands. Traffic has been pretty sporadic; this forum seems to have lost a lot of traffic after one of the sell-offs caused a bit of a forum split.
