thought that was U...Im glad matty offer'd u that.....kinda makes up for telling u it was alright to run a Os plug.....i would tell him to go ahead and send a new mill and start fresh...with a leaky plug it guarenteed ran lean and did some damage....give him a call and inquire to what i told him....tell him Nick sent ya...he should remember...Matt's an Awsome guy to deal with.

Where does it say that I use an OS plug in a Jammin engine, it's not like you can't use one in your Jammin, you can but once it is threaded into that button consider it only for OS plugs as it changes the thread and seal area I go to track almost every week on Thrus. and Sat and have seen many of these situations time and time again. Our Picco plugs are the perfect fit to the head button like all manufactures that make there own engines, but O-don has taken the time to note and separate the plug line so you can get the right fit to your head button. I just want to make clear if you use OS plugs your button we be shaped in to a OS thread. And please try not to use a NOva PLug that could be your worse choice in that button.

DJ I think he somehow misunderstood what you were trying to say..I agree with you, once you force another type of plug into the mtor, you may not be able to ever run the intended Picco plugs again.... so once you have torqued down a OS plug your likely best to just keep running OS plugs, providing you get it to actually seal correctly !

Nobody told me to run the OS my buddy picked a couple up for me from a shop 120 miles from me our local shop does not stock any turbo plugs,I had no idea there was a differance between them.Our local shop is a Horizon guy and they show some Ofna/Piccos no description on heat range and the part # matches nothing on the Ofna site?All I have left to run are some LRP's.While I'm hear could I get some advice/opinions on a good plug,heat range with 20% and 30%.I'm sure glad I got on this site there is a ton of great info!!!!

This is great every body says the world will come to an end if OS plugs go in a jammin.I use OS plugs in mine & have no problems with sealing or stripping & the plugs do exactly what I want them to do & far out last picco plugs for a lot less money.As for puting a picco plug back in thats never gonna happen,been there,wasted my money on that, never again.Guess I'll just destroy my motor with the better plug.

its not rocket science the OS plugs dont fit correctly...take the button off and thread in a OS plug, there is a huge gap beteen the bottom oft he plug and the head button, they clearly are not the right plugs I guess for those who like to put the circle in the square continue on with OS plugs...

Picco plugs rock, average life for us is 1.5 gallons per plug...we use Trinity Drake plugs as well ...no way do OS plugs last as long as these.

These motors do not need a hit plug, they run exelent on med and cold as well...Hots are good for those who can't tune.....

the world wont come to an end..but your JPX may not make as much power with a OS plug as it will with a Picco plug.. the OS plug leaves too much gap around its body when installed in the Picco button, which can cause leakage.......... as for burning Picco plugs, i have no idea why, or if Picco has changed the plugs since, but so far the Picco plugs ( Trinity Drakes) have been the longest lasting plugs we have ever used...... I went thru the entire Canadian Nationals on 3 modified Picco's and never had to replace a single plug... out of the many modded JPX motors I have in circulation every motor runs Picco plugs and every person cannot beleive how long lasting the plugs are.... many times at around 1.5 gallons we will change the plugs because we want to, not because we need to.....

The PICCO plug I broke my motor in with is still a good plug. If you can destroy a picco plug I cant imagine what an O.S. plug is doing for you. I've never had such luck with an O.S plug..... In anything.

I just want to post that I finally got to breaking my engine and got it tuned in and all i have to say is that this engine is freakin awsome. I can't wait to really see what this motor does when it loosens up a little more.
