Default turbo plugs?

Are turbo plugs interchangable with standard glow plugs? i.e. I bought a motor with a standard plug, can I just swap it out for a turbo plug w/o any changes to the motor?

On some motors you can swap the burn room for a tubo room . I did it with a Nova Rossi..

If you're still asking such questions you don't have the tuning skills to gamble with $9 turbo plugs. Stay with the cheaper standard plugs.
