Re: Glossary

I don't know if it may even be a good idea to enter stuff like cam and sump, a cam being an offcentered doo-dar and a sump being that thing where all the oil lives

Oh another acronym - ECU - Electronic Control Unit (NOT ENGINE control unit) - EDIT <- that looks like I may have been having a dig at helcat, who also put the same thing, and was also correct

Re: Glossary

Hmm... Wiki disagrees with you on the ECU front there... whilst there are a number of Electronic CU's in the car, it refers to the main one we all know as the Engine Control Unit....

Re: Glossary

Ok added those (what I could find) - do you think it's worth putting in descriptive text, or just filling in the acronyms and linking to Wiki?

Re: Glossary

Lambda Sensor
MAP - Manifold Absolute Pressure
IAT - Inlet Air Temp
TDC - Top Dead Centre
TB - Throttle Body
GSR - duh!
RR - Rolling Road
SPI - Single Point Injection
MPI - Multi Point Injection
EFI - Electronic Fuel Injection

i think an onMouseover description, then clickable link to wiki would work best

Re: Glossary

Removed the dodgy "link" icons, cluttering up too much. Also word still out on the empty yellow box on the popup, don't worry - it will be removed

Re: Glossary

dunno, about anybody else, but when I hover over the words, it opens the box on the same line as the text, obliterating the sentance, could it open under neath the highlighted word?
