Sorry - I didn't check there. I just looked here and the S197 main forum...[8D] Most know them all anyway, but thought it might be good for newbies (or those skeered to ask...)

I saw it and it is good. Perhaps sticky that here as well cause you're right, many never see the light of day on the 4.0 section...

Nice list. I'm sure it'll help a lot of folks.
Small note - on octane, the R is Research, not Road.
