    Commonly used acronyms

    Still kinda new here and would like a tutorial with some of the abbreviations used around the forum.
    I've dealt mostly with 60's muscle so I throw around things like M22, 427BB, 12 bolt posi, pop-ups, you get the idea.
    I could not find a thread like this under search so, here we go.
    What prompeted this is that a member was kind enough to offer some advice for me and I am ashamed to say, not really sure what the abbreviation meant.
    I know some, help me with the rest and PLEASE add on to the list!
    And BTW, I did figure out one of the abbreviations over on the pic/video buffett. PIITB, which BTW, my wife still will have no part of!
    (OK This is Jimmy, I have edited this thread and will continue to add as we go. I decided instead of stick the thread itself, I put a LINK to this thread in a pre-existing sticky)

    SY- Screaming Yellow
    SS- Satin Silver
    SM- Silver Metallic

    MC- Mystichrome (code G6) "Mystic" is a common but grossly incorrect abbreviation for Mystichrome since it is it's own color from 1996 and people need to start getting Mystichrome right.
    DHG- Dark Highland Green
    TB- True Blue

    I think COP stands for Coil On Plug.

    Don't feel bad, I just realized the other day that FLSC stands full length subframe connectors.

    Just a few I could think of. . .

    EGR - exhaust gas recirculation
    IAC - idle air control
    IAT - intake air temperature
    MIL - malfunction indicator lamp
    OBD II -onboard diagnostics

    and something I noticed, SC could also mean Super Charger

    and a question, wtf does BAB mean?
