Here are a few off the top of my head. Feel free to correct and/or add to the list.

WUR - warmup regulator, otherwise known as the control pressure regulator
LSD - a magical elixir brewed by Timothy Leary back in the 60's. Or, if you prefer, Limited Slip Differential
AAV - auxilary air valve
AAR - auxilary air regulator
TTS - thermotime switch
CDI - capacitive discharge ignition
OB - generally used in discussion, referring to Over Boosting
MSD - aftermarket ignition
ATDC - after top dead center
BTDC - before top dead center
EBC - electronic boost control(er)
WG - wastegate
PP - pressure plate
TB - throttle body
TOB - throwout bearing
IC - intercooler
BOV - blowoff valve
BL - Brian Leask (maker of adjustable WUR's)
Thanks much!
