I run the fireball standards in all my engines, and have for the last two season. No issues.

Hi, thanks for the info on this plug. By the way, may I know the lenght of this plug on the thread area (screw area) is long or short? As I know OS#8 is short and Nova and RB plug is long. Please advise. Thanks.

It's available in both long and short.

The long is the standard for most engine applications.

If it helps you, I run my RB S3 with the standard long plug. Never had any issues, other then more money in my pocket for other things!
