    Lots of people seem to like it but, I've never found it to be accurate.

    Re: Re Calculator?

    from what i have found its off in the port length part...

    you just cant read the lengths for port length 1 and port length 2... they are always way short

    the number you've gotta look at are the ones that say total port length, this length always seems to be spot on with the other calculators ive used

    Re: Re Calculator?

    I use it and it seems to work good for basic boxes. I do the same thing Dcole is talking about, As long as the total port length is on point with what your going for it should be just fine.
