TMA = Too Many Acronyms

Can't you code something that lets you just hover the cursor over an acronym an it will display what it means?

TWA - That Would be Awesome.

However, it would likely require that people all used dots or typed acronyms in a similar fashion.

Then again, a link pops up any time you type MPGuino... so yeah, maybe Ben can handle that. :P

I think MFI is normally "Multiport Fuel Injection", not "Mechanical Fuel Injection". Fuel injection which is not multiport is called TBI or "Throttle Body Injection". This was used on lots of American engines in the late 1980's. The throttle body was mounted where the carburetor would normally go. It used one or two injectors. MFI is supposed to be better than TBI. The best kind of MFI is sometimes called SFI or Sequential Fuel Injection. SFI systems operate the fuel injectors sequentially. Regular MFI operates the injectors all at the same time.

Just FWIW (for what it's worth), the TBI was still being used on the Geo/Chevy Metro (and presumably, other low-end cars) up through the
year 2000.

Just so you know, FTW on a bikers vest/jacket DOESN'T mean "For The Win". It means "F**k the World".

JTOMA- Just Talking Out My A$$

I do like the idea of actually typing out the meanings in the first post you make in a thread so everyone is on the same page, IMHO(In my Humble Opinion).
