HKS - Aftermarket performance product company. Most notable for turbos and exhaust systems.

In 1973, Mr. Hasegawa and his partner, Mr. Kitagawa, designed the first commercialized turbocharger for passenger cars. Joining forces with Sigma Company (hence the designation HKS)

It does not stand for Hong Kong Sports.

I noticed you have VIR (Virginia International Raceway). How about adding SIR

"SIR: Seattle International Raceway, not in Seattle and closed for the time being. Will have a different name when reopened."

NVH = Noise Vibration and Harshness

I had to search a bit to find it after being frustrated about coming across it quite a few times in the suspension forum.

GDA is the chassis code for an '02 Impreza sedan. I'm surprised it wasn't on the list, yet the wagon was..
