OHC- Overhead Camshaft

When you say add, you mean make new, or already existing?

I'm not looking to invent new internet slang if that's what you mean, just simply trying to add the already existing acronyms that are frequently used into the forum software.

Once again, I am limiting the acronyms to vehicle specific phrases (in other words, I'm excluding things like LOL, ROFL, etc.).

If you would like to makes jokes you can do so in the joke forum here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/laugh-factory/
