the Key to turbo plugs is running the plugs that match the motor... Picco plugs for Picco motors..Ninja plugs for Ninja motor.... Nova for Nova ETC....... I have seen many people struggle to tune in both Picco's and Ninja's because they are running either OS or Nova plugs............ Match the plug to the motor and everything will work like a charm..

If your going thru 4 plugs in less then 1/2 gallon, stop drop and roll...you are doing something very very wrong, and most likely you need to remove the filament particles now floating around in your combustion chamber....

Well I have 2 Novarossi's a turbo 421 and a normal 421 , the turbo engine has more rip mid to top and is VERY picky to needle and ambient temps where as the normal 421 is a mild manored powerhouse! Out of the 2 I like both ,the turbo version is great for slippery tracks and both run about 7.5 - 8 minutes runtime tuned safe! I have a non turbo CLB 4N that is about as sycho as it gets power and smoothness wise , and fuel economy is pretty good too .
I have seen a lot of turbo and non-turbo engines run and I think the best turbo plugged engine is an OS and the best non turbo would be a Nova or RB.

Thanks for the heads up, nope, no broken filaments in the chamber, just shiny and wet and still intact in the plug's cavity (all 4). Running too rich, my bad Anyway I was breaking in the engine

I've had the same problem with my OS Speed, it blows a plug every 4 tanks. But to look at the plug, it looks fine.... Just doesn't glow!.... Although, i'm running nosram plugs, not OS....
