are the ones I filled in...
Easier to see the new stuff that comes in and just copy paste it into your document..
Some things need spellcheck 'cause I didn't know how to spell it..

Master Cylinder -
DEW98 - - Ford's latest mid-size, rear-drive chassis which is used for the new Ford Thunderbird, Lincoln LS and Jaguar S-Type and is suspected to be the base of the 2005 Mustang.
FN10 - - The Chassis desigantion for all '93 through '98 MarkVIIIs

Mod Motor - Ford's Modular Motor - This is the name for the modular line of engines, including the 4.6(V8), 5.4(V8), and 6.8(V10) Liter engines. The modular comes from the fact that the same tooling, with only small changes, can be used to produce any these engines. The 5.4 is basically the 4.6 with a taller deck height and longer stroke, the cylinder heads between these engines can be interchanged. The 6.8 is basically the 5.4 block with an extra 2 cylinders in the middle. The heads for this engine resemble the 5.4 heads with provisions for the extra cylinder each.

Roller Rockers -
Spark Plug -
Timing Chain -
Timing Chain Tensioner -
Underdrive Pullies - Smaller than stock pullies. Makes all accesories (i.e. alternator, powersteering, fan....) turn slower freeing up a few horsepower... You can get charging/heat problems with this setup.
Valve Spring -
Water Pump -
--Engine Operation Terms--
Bored - When you make the cylinders diameter larger
to fit larger pistons. Makes more horsepower.
Extrude Hone -
Fuel Injection -
Lean - Engine doesn't get enough fuel compared to the air it gets.
This is bad for your engine!
Port Matched - When you match the size of ports that connects to each other.
For example upper and lower intake
Rich - Engine getting to much fuel compared to the air it's getting.
Not neceserly a bad thing but not good either
Retarded Timing -
Spark Knock -
Spark Retard -
Spark Timing -
Stroked - Can't explain this one in a simple fashion but it makes more torque
2-Way Convertors -
3-Way Convertors -
Cat - see Catalytic Convertor
Catalytic Convertor -
Dual Exhaust -
Exhaust Scavenging -
H-Pipe - A pipe that runs between the two pipes in a Dual Exhaust setup, looks like a stretched out H depending on the install. It is used to blend the output of the left and right exhaust banks and smothe out the flow to help with Exhaust Scavenging.
JBA Shorties -
Pre-Cats - Used to describe the two Primary Catalytic Convertors, there is no such thing as a Pre-Cat, it is a bad term that should not be used.
Quasi-Dual Exhaust -
X-Pipe - Shaped like an 'X', it is used to blend the output of the left and right exhaust banks and smothe out the flow to help with Exhaust Scavenging.
7.5 gear - The diameter in inches of the ring gear found in V6 non-supercharged MN12s.
8.8 gear - The diameter in inches of the ring gear found in V8 and Supercharged MN12/FN10s. It is stronger than the 7.5 inch gear. It is also used in other Ford Vehicles, such as the Mustang, Panther platform cars and in some trucks.
Carrier - The housing that contains the Ring and Pinion Gears and the DIfferential
Diff. - see Differential
Differential - Directs power to the wheels, can be either open(see Open Diff) or locking(see Trac-Loc)
Final Drive Ratio - see Gear Ratio
Gear Ratio - The ratio of the Ring and Pinion Gears in the rearend. Different Gear Ratios will cause the wheels to turn at different RPMs at any given driveshaft RPM Common Ford gear sizes are 2.73?, 3.08, 3.27, 3.55, 3.73, 4.10, and 4.30. There is a company producing a set of 3.90 gears, I believe it is Motive that is doing this.
Half-Shafts - The two shafts that goes from both sides of the differential to the
Open Differential - A non-locking differential. This will allow one wheel to turn while the other does nothing, resulting in a 'one wheel peel' and poor traction.
Open Rear - see Open Differential
Pinion Gear - A shaft with a small helical gear cut into one end, the other end bolts to the driveshaft flange
Ring and Pinion Gears - A set of gears designed to work together to transfer the power from the driveshaft to the rear wheels. The Pinion Gear is connected to the driveshaft, and has a small end with helical gear teeth, these engage the Ring Gear which is attached to the differential. Different Gear Ratios will cause the wheels to turn at different RPMs at any given driveshaft RPM
Ring Gear - Large round gear with teeth cut into one side, this gear attaches to the differential.
Trac-Lok - A locking differential. This will allow both wheels to get power and turn at the same rate when going straight, and still allow them to turn at different rates when the car turns a corner. This gives much better traction than an Open Differential. The locking action is accomplished by a spring and two sets of clutches, one set for left and one set for right, these clutches will engage or dissengage to keep both wheels turning the same, or allow one to slip.
ACT - Air Charge Temperature sensor - Measures the temperature of the air comming into the engine, commonly used in super/turbocharged setups.
C&L MAF -
GT-MAF - MAF sensor off of a late model Mustang GT. Larger size than stock (available in 80mm and 85mm, stock is 70mm) with much more accurate air metering. Recommended for mild to wild normally aspirated engine combinations. A chip is required in order for the MAF to work properly. Requires a new engine harness pigtail on vehicles 1995 and older.
IAC - Idle Air Control - An opening that allows air to flow to the engine when the throttle blade is completely closed, hwen it gets clogged the engine will have a rough idle, or not idle at all.
IAT - Intake Air Temperature sensor - Measures the temperature of the air comming into the engine. This value is reported to the EEC
Knock Sensor -
L-MAF - Same as the GT MAF except it comes from a late model Lightning pickup truck, available in 80mm and 90mm sizes. These are recommended for supercharged engine combinations that need to meter much more air than a normally aspirated motor. Not recommended for a normally aspirated motor. Also requires a chip for proper functioning. Requires a new engine harness pigtail on vehicles 1995 and older.
MAF - Mass Air Flow sensor - Measures the airflow through the intake tube to the engine, it reports this to the EEC, which uses this data to control the timing of the spark and the amount of fuel delivered.
MAFs - see MAF
Pro-M - Company that makes MAF's (Insert URL here)
TPS - Throttle Position sensor - Reports how far open or closed the throttle is to the EEC
TPS - Didn't you get the memo about the new cover sheet? Oh, and I'm going to need you to come in on Saturday.
Adjustable Ride Control - Shortened "ARC" factory installed option that
makes it possible to electronically adjust the firmness
of the shocks.
