    Throttle plate in the throttle body is wide open letting the maximum amount of air into the intake which in turn sucks in the juice baby!

    The more precise engineering term is WFO.....as in Wide F'ing Open.......

    WOT means the accelerator pedal is buried in the carpet...or...if you are on a dyno the throttle plates are open as far as possible.
