I''m really glad you added these. There have been a few I was gonna ask about.

So what does the "DHP" in "DHP PCM" actually stand for?

Also, the thread regarding APP spark plugs included this chart:


What is KR and what are the other columns?

TIA

Well done, guys!

Add 9C3 as the "unmarked" version of the police package car. It comes with a bench front seat (actually a 60/40, I guess) i nstead of buckets, and the full plastic wheel covers that are on the base cars (or were - I think the base cars no longer have steel wheels and wheel covers as of 2004).

9C6 is the taxi package, but seems to me that was discontinued for 2004 also?

That is correct...no more 9C6. It was disco''d because they weren''t selling enough new to the taxi companies. It''s still cheaper to buy used squads, than new cars...

9C3 are really nice looking cars, looks like a base but theres power under that hood!!! Was looking at a state surplus auction and looked at their new car, nor for sale, lot and they had a fresh 2003 black with tan, no miles, everything looked so great!!! Inside it stock bench seat and I think the driver''s is power seat, really nice cars tho. *Note to self: just because its a base impala doesnt mean its not a cop car, stick to racing LS models Laughing Laughing *

BTW I saw a few with LS style rims, and I''ve seen quite a few base models with LS rims, what is up with that? Is it an option or are people just buying these rims, seen 9C3s with LS rims which is weird, not exactly cop material.

Right on the power seat.
Right on racing only LSs, but be careful... the PD here has a couple of Monte Carlos!

I thinkther''s an aluminum wheel now that''s standard on the 2004 base cars, that looks like (similar?) to the LS wheel of old... take a look at chevy.com

Update, there''s a sport appearance pkg for the base car for 2004: " Sedan Sport Appearance Group: 16-inch styled cast-aluminum wheels, Corvette-inspired body-color rear taillamp applique, rear decklid spoiler, Sport Cloth front bucket seats, cruise control, AM/FM stereo with CD player"

Are you sure you''ve seen 9C3s with them? Think they still have the plastic wheel covers. Update, according to the web site they do.

DIC - Driver Information Center - the overhead console available on LS, SS models. Displays outside temperature, has remote for garage door, etc. (someone please check me on all of this)

Ran into this one the other day, thought I''d add it.

For those of you that still don't know what STFT and LTFT is, it's the measurement of fuel added to the air/fuel mixture and indicates whether or not the engine is running lean or rich on a particular bank of the enging. It's what the O2 sensors check for you. Respectable (?) numbers are +/- 10% (?)

A couple other commonly used abbreviations:

TCM - Transmission Control Module
TC - Traction Control

FWIW - For What It's Worth

Not sure what DIN stands for, but in reference to car audio (only place it'd be used here) it refers to the size standard of the head unit. They're all the same width, but the height varies. Single DIN is about 2", 1.5 DIN is about 3", and Double DIN is 4" high.
