All of these are commonly used short hand on other sites (3rd and 4th gen sites in particular) that I frequent.
CAI = Cold Air Intake (aftermarket air cleaner, Volant being the manufacturer).
RWHP = Rear Wheel Horse Power as measured on a chassis dyno.
RWT = Rear Wheel Torque as measured on a chassis dyno.
SFC = Sub Frame Connectors.
LT = Long Tubes or regular headers (as opposed to mid length headers which can be used with the catalytic converters - long tubes and or aftermarket y-pipe are commonly used instead of cast iron exhaust manifolds and cats). I also have an X-pipe as opposed to an H-pipe or nothing. An X or H pipe joins the 2 halves of the system together and is used to create a better scavaging effect.
TD = True duals which really don't fit on 4th gens as they (and 3rd gens as well) aren't designed for them. These are commonly dumped at the rear axle although they can be made to go over the axle if you relocate the panhard bar.
TA = Torque Arm, the round tube aftermarket version (which I have) is considerably stronger than the factory stamped steel piece.
DA = Density Altitude - anybody who races knows what this is.
Next on the list for me are LCA's (aftermarket Lower Control Arms) and relocation brackets + better shocks to control the massive wheel hop my car has when I launch it on DR's (Drag Radials). I race with these tires (DR's) as it blows the stockers off at anything under 20 mph.
