    Something I think would help the noobs

    While not new to modding cars, I am new to modding turbo cars. Some of the acronyms on here are hard to figure out. ORHP for example, I got hot pipe but the OR I'm lost on. Maybe somebody could (or perhaps already has and I haven't seen it) make a list of the commonly used acronyms so us noobs can educate ourselves without asking unnecessary questions. Just a thought as I lose sleep hours reading this site

    There is no destiny, only what we make for ourselves.

    ORHP = OEM Replacement Hot Pipe. I don't think it's a standardized acronym but rather what Xenon Element uses. They use "OR" for all their products ie ORCP(Cold Pipe) ORIC(Intercooler).

    Another thing that helps is listing your car and mods in your sig so when commenting or asking questions everyone can see what you're working with.
