Turbo. Plugs last longer and tune better. Not to mention by the time you by two or three conical plugs, I'm still on my first Turbo plug.

Turbo plugs are conical plugs. Standard plugs have a flat seat.

I've blown 4 turbo plugs (C6 and C7, and two ultra C7 nova plugs) in less than half a gallon, as opposed to 1 std plug with the same amount of fuel. I would say Turbo engines are far more brutal to 'improper' needle settings

Talking

turbo plugs are a tuners plug !!! not every engine likes turbo head button though some engine designs actually lose power when turbo button is installed , while others have a major power increase odo77t , novac6tgf are the turbo plugs i prefer myself .

Another great thing about turbo plugs is that you don't have to worry about the washer that comes on standard plug.

Can you switch between the two types of plugs on the same engine?
