Default Help us add more acronyms

It's time we start better utilizing the acronym system, and we need your help to do this. I am limiting the acronyms to vehicle specific phrases (in other words, I'm excluding things like LOL, ROFL, etc.).

If you can provide any acronyms and their meanings it would be greatly appreciated. This is what we currently have:

AAL
ABS
BL
CEL
CV
DS
DSG
DWB
ECU
EGR
FRF
IAC
IFS
IRS
MAF
O/D
OHC
OHV
PCM
PCV
R/F
RBV
RPS
SFA
SLA
SOHC
T/O
TIB
TPS
TRS
TTB
