Is there a summary page that explains all if not most of the acronyms used in the C7 world? It is frustrating to read posts and articles and not grasping what is being written. If not, can someone provide the most 20 commonly used acronyms? Thanks.

I think you may get your answer more quickly if you post the acronyms you wish to have listed out.

I agree with Rodney, when you have time please post a list of the acronyms you have come across that need explanation and we will be glad to clarify as well as add some related ones if appropriate.

I am not sure exactly what you mean? Do you mean its components, or its features, or both? Rather than creating a list here, maybe it would be more informative for you to ask within the thread that a questioned item is mentioned. Folks here will be glad to answer those kind of questions.

I'll take a stab at some of the most frequently used

C7 = 7th generation of the Corvette model
NPP = Dual mode performance exhaust
LT1 = 6.2L NA (normally aspirated) Corvette Engine 2014- up in Stingrays
LT4 = 6.2L Supercharged Corvette Engine first used in the Z06
1LT, 2LT, 3LT = Interior equipment packages from least to most inclusive
FE4 = Magnetic adjustable suspension
Mag Ride = See above
Vert = Convertible
Z51 = Performance package including dry sump engine, bigger wheels, tires and brakes, Ediff (see below)
Ediff = Electronic controlled limited slip differential
A8 = 8 speed automatic transmission 2015 - up
A6 = 6 speed automatic transmission 2014
M7 = 7 speed manual transmission 2014 - up
PDR = personal data recorder 2015 - up

This one took me a bit when I first joined the forum: TPW = targeted production week, the potential week GM will manufacture your car.

I would add:

"Glen E" - Perhaps the most referenced member in this forum. You will find he provides great insight, how-to references and timely comments in the forum.
Thank you, I try to get to every PM.....

M7 = 7 speed manual transmission 2014 - up
PDR = personal data recorder 2015 - up
TPM = tire pressure monitoring system
TPW = target production week
I think this is value added to individuals new to both the Stingray and our forum. As appropriate additional ones are suggested they will be added to this.

Jsvette isn't TPM also known as TPMS? Should both be on the list?

Great adds with some constructive editing

RPO - Regular Production Option (installed at the factory)
LPO - Limited Production Option (shipped directly to and installed by the dealer)

Oops! Thank you for the correction, Mark!

CCC - Chevrolet Customer Care
DFC - Destination Freight Charge
BC/CC - Base Coat / Clear Coat
OP - Original Poster
OP - Orange Peel

and starting down that list leads me to a dozen or more others which, like those above, are not Corvette-specific and people would already know if they are a car person of any type: RPM, HP, DI, VVT, IGR, EGR, NA, IM, TB, WOT, CFM, SC, DOT, SAE. At some point it is best for the OP to state what he wants defined to make sure it gets added to the list. I think that would be easier.

As Rodney/rdslon01 has started to list above, I was at first confused by the colors: AW, CRT, NRB, etc.
