The client is large online store for auto parts. The store offers 100,000+ auto parts in 100+ categories for wide range of vehicles. The sore is based on Magento and was using default MySql full text search. The results of the searches were not accurate and performance was slow.

Also modified the settings for extension to produce optimized and most accurate results. The search can be seen in action here
