English term or phrase: flash point
OEM engineers sometime use timing (or even cam phasing) to smooth over transitions from gear to gear on
an automatic-transmission vehicle. Honda has done some of this to smooth out the transition from the low- to highspeed cam on VTEC engines. Some tuners have dialed in more than 40 degrees of timing in the midrange to match the torque converter flash point, again pulling timing in speed-loading cells where the converter lugs down.

Polish translation:temperatura zapłonu
Explanation:
Temperature at and above which a liquid gives off enough flammable vapor to form a mixture with air that can be ignited by contact with a hot surface, spark, or flame. Lower the flash point, greater the fire hazard. Common test methods of determining flash point include Pensky-Marten Closed Tester (ASTM D93-79), Setaflash Closed Tester (ASTM D3278-78), and Tag Closed Tester (ASTM D56-79). Since each test method may yield a different reading, the test method employed is usually indicated when a liquid's flash point is given in a material safety data sheet (MSDS) or in technical documents. Flash point should not be confused with auto-ignition point temperature at which combustion occurs spontaneously, without an external source of ignition.
