Default Novarossi or O S glo plugs?

I have a novarossi plus 21-7 and would like to know if anyone knows if the taper on a turbo plug is the same a novarossi plug or do they recommend using OS plugs in this engine?

Default taper is the same

the basic plug shape is the same. However the OS plugs use a different method to indicate heat range. Its hard to match them up to the nova types. I'd stick with nova or RB plugs in a Nova motor.

The newer nova plugs (g series) are of a much higher quality than the OS plugs

c7tgc for hot humid days
c7tgf for hot dry days

if all else fails, c6tgf.

Both OS and Novarossi use the same thread. Since you are running a Novarossi, I would use the Novarossi plugs. I use the OS only in emergencey.


Be careful about using the Picco based Mega. Those engines use just "Mega" plugs. The treading is different. I found out the hard way...
