That engine derives from the Picco P3-28 which I have run for years and I have had great luck with the RB Concepts 01056-08 which is a cold plug. I also have tried the 06 and 07 which are med and med cold. I currently run the Novarossi C5TGF and C6TGF which are the hot and med plugs and they are also working great. I have team members who have run the OS P6 and P3's in those engines which have also worked decent. In my opinion, start with the med range plugs as they will give you good all around performance. They are hot enough to keep the engine running crisp but cool enough to control pre-ignition if the engine leans out a little during a run. The C6TGF is my current plug of choice.
