The p4 will definatly work but the p3 plug was specificLly designed for that engine. I have used both p3 and p4's in vspecs and they both work fine. My personal preference is the p3 plug. Os engines deserve os plugs sure other brands will work but why questionan engine mfg it's like sticking hotbodies parts on an ae car. Sure some may work but why??

I have been told that the new Go Engine's T3 plugs (ultra hot plug) are exact copies of the OS P3 plugs and supposed to work the same, however the P3's & P4's have a slightly tapered end to fit perfectly in the OS engines.

My advice would be to stick to P3's as this plug is perfect all round for this engine

Os engines deserve os plugs. I have seen too many odonnel plugs come out of the package and oops they don't work. I haven't had that issue with the os plugs. I have used most oftheir turbo plugs p3, p4 & p7. I am sure that odonnel plugs will work but like I said os engines deserve os plugs.

There aren't even in the same Zip Code as a P3. They are more like a P6 in the OS heat range.

The taper on the 97T is slightly different than the OS plug, which may result in sealing issues. Besides, the 97T is a medium-hot plug, whereas the P3 is an ultra hot.

I run a P3 in my Speed, but I will likely switch that out to a P4 when it gets to the really hot part of the summer. May not make a huge difference, but I've got one in my pit box to try out.

You can't go wrong with the P3 though. Others have said it....the engine is designed for it, and the P3 is a great all around plug.

I should of also said some people switch to the P4 in very low alttitudes and very high temperatures. The P3 plug will work everywhere but some people do like the P4 in certain conditions. I know where I live I don't think I will ever need to touch any other plug then a P3.
