ARP – Manfacturer of studs for replacing stock head bolts
AP – Accelerator pedal
Baro – barometric pressure
BST – Boost or pressure created by the turbo at the intake of the engine
CAT – Catalytic converter
CKP – crankshaft position
CMP – Camshaft position
ECT – Engine coolant temperature
EGRVP – Exhaust gas recirculation valve position
EOP – Engine oil pressure (it is a switch on the 6.0 not a real gauge)
EP – Exhaust pressure
EBP –Exhaust back pressure
ELC – Extended life coolant (some members prefer it over Ford Gold coolant normally associated with Caterpillar)
ECM – Electronic Control module
EGR – Exhaust gas recirculator (valve) (cooler)
ESOF – Electronic shift on the fly (vacuum actuated lockouts and transfer case actuator)
FICM – Fuel Injection Control Module
GPCM – Glow plug control module
HEUI – Hydraulically actuated Electronically controlled Unit Injector (Caterpillar design licensed to International)
HG- Head gaskets
HFCM – horizontal fuel conditioning module (located on the frame rail and has 1st stage filter in it and water separator
HPOP – High pressure oil pump (supplies the injectors with high pressure oil for injecting fuel into the cylinders)
IAT1 – intake air temp 1
IAT2 – intake air temp 2
ICP – Injection control pressure (a sensor near turbo on 2003 and early 2004, on the passenger side valve cover of all later models)
IPR – Injection Pressure regulator (used to adjust commanded oil pressure to the injection system
MAF – Mass air flow
MAP – Manifold absolute pressure
MC – Motorcraft (Ford OEM)
OEM – Original equipment manufacturer
PCM – Progammable control module
REV-X – a brand of oil additive (manufacturer)
SCT – a brand of tuner that programs the PCM with engine and transmission file to create a particular performance level
SG2 – Scangauge 2 (or II it is a low cost gauge that can display most of the 6.0 sensors and diagnostic codes works off of the OBD-II port while engine is running)
TFT – Transmission fluid temperator

Addition to list

STC -

Snap To Connect - is a fitting in the HPOP system that is prone to failure on later models of the 6.0 high pressure oil system. It is found near the pump. Upgraded versions are available to remedy the issue
