Default Acronyms and abreviations

The one thing I have noticed is that a lot of acronyms and abreviations get thrown around on these pages. For some of us.. (maybe just me!) .. become totaly lost as to what the heck you are talking about! BOV, CAI, PCM, ETC., ETC.
Do you think it would be possible for someone to compile an up to date list of this stuff for reference? It would sure be appreciated!

Not sure what ETC's are but...

BOV= Blow Off Valve,
CAI= Cold Air Intake,
PCM= Powertrain Control Module,
MBC= Manual Boost Controller

Got more?

Thanks for the request. I needed to know this stuff too.

Sometimes I think we create our own language so we can feel superior. [8D] On the other hand, abs. r. esr. t. tp.
