    Help

    I would like to see a list of all the abbreviations, and their meanings, that everyone uses on here. Most of them are easy to figure out, but some are a little tough for a dumb country boy like me. Thanks.

    It might be easier to list the ones you don't know and we could translate, since there are quite a few and I can't think of all of them off the top of my head. I'm assuming you're talking about mods/parts, so here's a few of them...

    TB = Throttle Body
    TBB = Throttle Body Bypass
    EGR = Exhuast Gas Recirculation
    LCA = Lower Control Arms
    SFC = SubFrame Connectors
    STB = Shock Tower Brace (I've seen people call this a Strut Tower Brace also)
    FRA = Free Ram Air mod
    MAF = Mass Air Flow, usually refers to the MAF sensor itself
    A-Tap = Autotap, refers to a diagnostic scanning tool and software for reading trouble codes
    LSS = Lou's Short Stick, an aftermarket short-throw shifter
    CAGS = Computer Assisted Gear Selection, it's basically a solenoid that locks out 2nd and 3rd gear, forcing you to shift from 1st directly to 4th when certain conditions are met.. mainly if you're at a low speed and not on the throttle much.. !CAGS means putting a resistor across the solenoid to defeat this system, making it to where you can shift from 1st to 2nd even if you're not on the throttle a lot, etc.
    DRL = Daytime Running Lights

    BMR & SLP are two of the many manufacturers that make aftermarket parts for our cars, and SLP also did the SS and Firehawk conversions.

    That's about all I can think of, hope that helps... post up whatever I left out.
