Is there a acronym page somewhere? Can we start one?

In all my reading I'm continually baffled and don't want to ask what something means. Maybe when I have a question I'll just post it on this same thread.

Please add along if you've got others I'm sure there are.

FI = Fuel injection
HO2S = Heated Oxygen Sensor
HP = Horse Power
IAC = Idle Air Control
IAT = Intake Temp Sensor
IC = Intercooler
MAF = Mass Air Flow (meter/sensor)
MAP = Manifold Absolute Pressure
More Rust than Mull = Huge Amount of Rust

the 'e' in the engine code does not stand for over head cam. it stands for electronic fuel injection.

OHC = over head cam

So are the L26e's mentioned above equipped with fuel injection, or twin su's like other 260z's?

well 260s were produced until 78 If I remember correctly... Mostly for the Aussies and the UK.
I don't know if they had FI though.

I'd always heard the 260 was only made for one year...I'd believe that the e is for fuel injection, I'm just curious now...
