We are running a portal with several million products. We have a site search based on Sphinx, but we need some one to tune and tweak this for us.
AJAX is used to fire the search as soon as the user start typing.
The main work will ppropably be done in the Sphinx config file, and in the Sphinx API file.
The issues we need solved:
1. We need integration of wordforms etc (CPU -> processor)
2. We need to have the search result weight checked and optimized so that more relevant results show up at the top.
3. The search support wildcards like _ but we also need it so support *
4. Some results do not seem to show up AT ALL in the search results, so we need some one to check the indexing and make sure that ALL products are included.

I will provide the files for you to edit, and upload them to the server for testing.
