Default do i have run turbo plugs/advice..

i just got my RB TM523 for my revo 3.3 im going to break it in with the #6 turbo plug that it came with on it..im going to my LHS to pick up some fuel and other stuff.. my LHS dont carry any RB turbo plugs do i have to run turbo plugs for this engine only or i can run other non turbo plugs aswell?
will it do damage if i dont run turbo plugs?

i did order some turbo rb plugs but wont be here till next week..i want to run it after i break it in...
will it be safe to switch from turbo to non turbo plugs?

so if non turbo plugs will work fine what number do you recommand that i get/brand? weather is just about 70 F + nice and warm were im at sea level

thanks

You cannot switch from turbo to standard pluds unless you have an standard head button/burn room. The turbo and standard plugs have different shapes. The only way you can use standard plugs is if you remove the cooling head and remove the turbo button and replace with a standard glow plug button.

will OS #6 will work fine with RB TM523 or i have to use RB plugs only?

what turbo plugs do you recommand that are good?

also how long dose a plug last before changing it? like how many tanks?

would it be a good idea to use the same plug that it came with after i break it inn?

thanks
