New to PSD power

Morning all. Im new to the PS power. Been a Duramax guy the last 5 or so years but am really liking my PS. Bought a '04 f250 sc4x4 lariat with 140,000 no mods for 9200.00 so it was a no brainer.
Just have one question for now. Is there a glossary of terms so I can figure out what some of the acronyms are?
Thanks for the great site!
