Question concering possible Abrev./acronym. I am trying to understand tuning and UTEC is most prevalent when doing my homework. Is this an acronym, abbreviation, and/or a referance to the Turbo XS engine management system?

Thanks

The UTEC is the name of the actual product and not an acronym.

So it doesnt stand for U-ser T-unable E-ngine C-ontroller or C-omputer (UTEC)?

*edit* Nevermind my question. I have decided against getting a UTEC or any for that matter until i get more done. It still is a good idea to add this acronym even though it is mostly used in reference to the specific brand of Turboxs. It could only help.
