To the first one, I say ..
To the second, I say no problem. Yall just don't BS me with stuff so I look like an a$$ and have to go back and re-do things. I've never seen some of these used so I will count on experience here to help me out

Raptor... COG is for the boys that want to lift 5 feet up. They may need to be reminded of this

So which is more proper... COG... or CG ?
And is WAI really legit?? never heard that one either (that I remember)

4.6 punisher ... I thought about that too since that is the way most of use see it used. And so it shall be

FBSS - in relation to what switches and actuators control the flow of air for an air ride system. Stands for Front Back Side to Sside. As in you can ajust the bags to shift the truck front, back or to either side.

4x4 - you have a street truck thats stock height but you wanna lower it, we will call it a 4x4 until you do lol

S/C - super charger

F/I - turbo

Hybrid (in relation to lightnings) - a turbo lightning. the hybrid reference is due to lightnings coming stock with a roots style eaton blower.

F/I - turbo
If you are saying it stands for forced induction, it could be a turbo or a S/C. However, to me F/I stands for fuel injection.

And is WAI really legit??
Well, a CAI is really a warm air intake if you stop to think about it. The stock air box actually pulls colder air in.
