Curious to know if anyone has a list of all common abbreviations that are used on this board. Sometimes I come across one and think to myself, "what the hell is that?". I'm sure it'd be helpful for some of the newer board members too. The list could actually get pretty huge considering the amount we use regularly.

WOT (wide open throttle)
EGT (exhaust gas temperature)
TT (turbo timer)
BOV (blow off valve)
DSM (Diamond Star Motors)
EBC (Electronic Boost Controller)
MBC (Manual Boost Controller)
AI (air intake)
CAI (cold air intake)
AFC (air/fuel ratio controller or air flow converter?)
EMS (engine management system)
UDP (underdrive pulley)
NA (normally aspired)
ATX (automatic transmission)
DP (downpipe)
IC (intercooler)
FMIC (front mounted intercooler)
TC (transfer case)
AWD (all wheel drive)
FIPK (fuel injection performance kit)
VPN (vein pressure convertor)
NG (national gathering)
1G (1st generation)
2G (2nd generation)

Granted most of these are obvious to those of us who've been here awhile, but I get stumped now and again too and trying to find a post that actually spells out the entire thing is a pain in the butt. A fully compiled list could probably be over 100 of these.

Anyone care to make a list or add to this one and roll from there? Just a thought. I actually wish the 3si website would have something like this... or maybe Jeff L's site (stealth316).

And here I was thinking AI was Alcohol Injection... Well, at least any time it shows up in a post by Trevor...

Oh, yeah, and
ECG = East Coast Gathering, held in OC (Ocean City, MD) every year the first weekend in May.

My original idea was to stay away from the msg board/chat abbreviations, just focused on car terms, so it's easier to peruse. Nothing against msg board/chat abbreviations mind you (good idea too). If there's no major objections, I'd sort out the 2 lists seperately as follows:

*Car related abbreviations*
1G (1st generation)
2G (2nd generation)
3SX (3000GT Stealth eXperts)
AAM (Altered Atmosphere Motorsports)
AF (air / fuel)
AFC (air/fuel ratio controller or air flow converter?)
AI (alcohol inection)
AI (air intake)
ATX (automatic transmission)
AWD (all wheel drive)
BOV (blow off valve)
CAI (cold air intake)
CFM (cubic feet per minute)
DP (downpipe)
DSM (Diamond Star Motors)
EBC (Electronic Boost Controller)
ECG (east coast gathering)
ECS (electronically controlled suspension)
ECU (engine control unit)
EGR (exhaust gas recirculation)
EGT (exhaust gas temperature)
EMS (engine management system)
FIPK (fuel injection performance kit)
FMIC (front mounted intercooler)
FWD (front wheel drive)
IC (intercooler)
IDC (injector duty cycle)
MAS (mass airflow sensor)
MBC (Manual Boost Controller)
MTX (manual transmission)
NA (normally aspired)
NG (national gathering)
NOS (nitrous oxide system)
O2 (oxygen sensor)
ROTM (reader of the month)
ROTY (reader of the year)
RWD (rear wheel drive)
TC (transfer case)
TP (test pipe)
TPS (throttle position sensor)
TT (turbo timer)
TT (twin turbo)
UDP (underdrive pulley)
VPN (vein pressure convertor)
WOT (wide open throttle)

*Message board abbreviations*
BBL (be back later)
BTW (by the way)
IMO (in my opinion)
IMHO (in my humble opinion)
LOL (laughing out loud)
PITA (pain in the ass)
POS (piece of shit)
ROTF (rolling on the floor)
ROTFLMAO (rolling on the floor laughin my ass off)
TTT (to the top)
TTYL (talk to you later)
WTF (what the f*ck)

Also, if you add to the overall list, state what terms you're adding at the end of the message as well, so we all know what's been updated.

I added ECU and MAS to this post.
