I can see acronym that are unique to the MN12/FN10 platform, but do we really need to reinvent the wheel?

O.K., how about PBR? I see that used when talking about brakes - does it stand for something in particular?

By the way, GREAT job, Brandon!

What does PBR mean?

I can guess, but don't want to seem stupid.

Interesting, however I can't say that I have ever seen that used on the site before.

I never meant for the list to be all-inclusive. I don't want any new members to get drowned out with such a long list of acronyms filled with many they might never see.

I guess/admit for this particular site, it's correct.

But I'm "old school" and to me when speaking about cars, "2V" means only one thing: a two barrel carburetor AKA two "venturi" and 4V is a 4 venturi (barrel) carburetor.

Fn10

I know MN12 refers to 89-97 T-Birds and Cougars (I used to own a '95 T-Bird in college), but under what brand name was Full Size North American Project # 10 sold? I'm guessing, being full sized, it would refer to Crown Vics and Grand Marquiss, but wasn't that chassis called the Panther? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

I can't beleive my old login worked. This is the first time I've been here since 2002 when I sold my T-Bird. I'm back, cause I'm wanting another 'Bird. Maybe an 87 or 88 5.0 this time.
