Cool Novarossi Toro Nero Turbo Plug Vs Normal Plug

Have you guys tried both of these engines? What are their pros and cons. The Turbo version is only a tad dearer but does it really perform better.

Perhaps the better question is:

Why is the same engine offered in standard and turbo versions?

Plug preference is just that up to the racer. I personally like turbo plugs, but that's my opinion. All my engines are turbo so I only have to carry one type of plug. My engine modder told me that they are all the same. He likes STD plugs. It's just what you prefer no real performance upgrade. Turbo plugs are more evpensive though.

From what i've been told:

Standard plus are cheaper, and easier to tune/hold a tune

Turbo plugs, more power, better fuel mileage [something to do with the shape of the base of the plug and the way it forms the combustion chamber provides better atomization]


Could be wrong but thats what i've been told
