Default any FAQ thread that explains the various acronyms??

new to the saab thing and getting used to yet another car subculture forum is always fun

trying to figure out some of you guy's acronyms is making my brain numb. usually there's a sticky FAQ that will explain the various shortterms thrown around by people in-the-know.

some that have me confused and I havent been able to figure out yet because they are always referred to in short term are:

BSR (assume a brand name performance company?)
PPC (absolutely no clue but lots of people do it haha)

2.0t and 2.0T apparently there IS a difference in the 2.0 turbo engines as I see it thrown around a lot. I'm assuming 2.0t is the lower 160hp engine and the 2.0T is for the 210hp engine??

is there a sticky explaining this stuff and I'm blind or what?

PPC is portable program carrier, the device which carries a software upgrade to rewrite your tuning. check it out on Genuine Saab

The T is 210, the t is 175.
