For example, some claim that the term “hot” refers to the vehicle being stolen. Other origin stories include replacing the engine’s camshaft or “rod” with a higher performance version.

The term has broadened to apply to other items that are modified for a particular purpose, such as “hot-rodded amplifier“. […]
