BOV =Blow off Valve,  blah blah exhaust blah.

BCFPR = any plain old freaking fuel pressure regulator. this is a term used and created by Ricers.

there are 3 type of pressure regulators:

1. RRFPR (aka FMU) fuel management unit
2. adjustable fuel pressure regulator
3. non-adjustable (factory type) pressure regulator.

2 and 3 could technically be called boost compensating when used on a boosted car.
whatever that means. as if one could use a can of yogurt instead. every freakin car has one yet stupid vendors try to toss in that term into the description of their crappy pressure regulator to make it seem like its something more.

OVCP = Over the Valve Cover Pipe.  The black metal pipe that feeds air from the turbo (non-intercooled cars) or from the intercooler to the throttle body.

Sometimes it's shortened to just OVC.
