W is "wide" and O is "open." The f means the same thing as in WTF.

I thought DSC stood for Drag Street Combat … so when you want a TLGP you make sure your DSC light is on.

Maybe time to add a couple of additional items to the list, like:

DFIC: Direct Flow Intercoller
HDI: High Density Induction
twurbo or twincharge
venom (nitrous oxide kit)
M62: Eaton supercharger upgrade from stock M45

Well, I thought I had more but those are the ones I can think of right now.

How about a Performance Encyclopedia!

Thanks and have fun modding!

19%,17%,15%: Referring to Supercharger Reduction Pulleys, and their size.
ABS: Anti-lock Braking System
A/F: Air Fuel Ratio
AGS: In reference to M7 Tuning's Air Gain System
AI: Alcohol Injection
Airbox: See C.A.I.
BBK: Big Brake Kit
BPV: Bypass Valve on a Supercharger
............
Please feel free to add. I will post additions/corrections ASAP!

Mike

Would only take a few hundred hours to put together...

SRT is the performance lines from dodge. Such as the SRT10 Ram or Neon SRT. LOL stands for laugh out loud.

So in the case of the license plate it's someone who is making fun of SRT's

Say, it would be nice if this thread was moved to general Mini discussion. It nicely covers stuff that is applicable to all Minis.
