Just thought of some more...

CF - Carbon Fiber
EM - Engine Management
JBP - Java Black Pearl
PSM - Platinum Silver Metallic
RE070 - Bridgestone Potenza RE070 (Stock STi Summer tires - pretty good)
RE92 - Bridgestone Potenza RE92 (Stock WRX All-Season tires - not very good)
SRR - San Remo Red
TGV Delete - Tumbler Generator Valve Delete Mod
TQ - Torque

boo hoo... all that hard work and the original list still isn't completely alphabetized How are all of the curious n00bs supposed to find what they're looking for quickly and easily? Also, I think this list is nearing sticky status. Good work everyone.
