    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)

    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
