A type of electronic fuel injection system that uses a single injector or pair of injectors mounted in a centrally located throttle body. The throttle unit resembles a carburetor except that there is no fuel bowl, float or metering jets. Fuel is sprayed directly into the throttle bore(s) by the injector(s).

12 V is a 12 volt electrical system not (12 valves per cylinder) . How many cams would you need for that many valves per cylinder. lol.......... that would be a 72 valve engine.

It could be volts or valves
In this case it looks like valves
It looks like all the letters are describing an engine
Not the electrical system
