Default Good pipe and Glow plug for RB S5

Looking for some advice on a turbo plug and standard plug for the rb s5 engine. Just picked one of these up and need some help. Also looking for a great pipe for this as well. Thanks in advance!

086 is the HP king. 2045 is nice too, a bit smoother maybe.

No one else is going to recommend this but trust me, Sirio #5 or #6 for turbo plugs.

what kind of taper does sirio have? i know when i first put a turbo button on was when rb & rossi plugs were fouled. and a bought a handfull of em too. anyhow for a gallon and tried them all couldnt get to run correct. put the 97t in there and bam 2 gallons supreme performance and odo plugs i get for$5 compared to rb plug $8. if the sirios are same taper i might try one next time i run an rb

The taper is very close. None of them are identical but the Sirio's are a pretty close match. In fact it's weird, a Sirio plug in a Nova fits better than a Nova plug does in a Sirio. Kind of like a lot of people use OS plugs in Nova motors and it works pretty well but a Nova plug WILL leak in an OS motor.
