Default Adjustment to Equipment to reflect contemporary standards

I remember seeing some home brew / house rules adjusting the weight etc... of equipment to meet a contemporary standard with today's technology. Anybody know where I can find it?

I took a look at thrust to weight ratio for jet engine development, and found it was quite a bit more then the incremental model in Striker. Right now I'm sticking with a 3:1 increase per TL, with a max sometime in TL10-11.

No, but this is helpful. I recall seeing a "formula" something like 10% reduction in wight and cost and enhance performance per tech level above introduction of item. there was an analogy to the size of personal comm gear and current size of cell phones, i believe, its been a while since I saw the "post." I do appreciate the response.
