Re: KKK <--- Racist turbos?

What does KKK stand for anyway? On the turbos, I mean. I know what
it means elsewhere and I always wonder how people will react to me
writing the letters down or talking to them about "my KKK is putting
out smoke again". Actually, I never say "kay-kay-kay" when talking
to folks about these turbos, always just say "triple-kay".
Just another trivia question: did the name KKK first apply to the
turbo maker or the other guys?
