OS P3 is the last plug you'll ever need in the V-spec.. Not sure on the Picco

In case it wasn't made clear... use the OS P3 in the VSPEC.

+1000 on a P3 in the OS engine. I have used P3's in my GRP's too and they were ok the P4 lasted longer in the GRP. I would try a P4 in your picco engine.

Use Picco 5's or 6's in the Picco. Use OS P3's in the OS.

Ditto what Wing said. For the picco only use picco plugs. Even if you have to order them.

P4's leak and are Not the same taper.....genuine Ofna/Picco plug's are the best for Jammin's/Picco's.
