You can use them but you can't go back to nova plugs after you thread an os plug into the button.

Is your nova running turbo plugs? (most do) then you can not use standard plugs.

Regarding using OS turbo plugs, I had no issues with them, most of the time you should not use Nova turbo plugs in other brands (based) engines.

Yes the OS is shorter than the Nova. That will cause some tuning issues, and have less than normal performance due to loss of compression ratio. I would just wait.

Yes i would wait to but next monday 2 june i want to ennter a race, and i have a o.s no 6 st... And old novarossi glow plug used during break in and only 1/2 of the coil shines.

Will the os harm the engine?

Neither will hurt anything.

Just use the Nova plug, it's still fine.

I have got the nova c6 standard plug today and I am ready for the race event ,

Just A quick question if the day will warm up or the nova plug will break in the race can I plug in a o.s nr.8 or nr.6 standard just to finish of the race???

I know there can be a performance issue because of o.s short body but I just want to Reach the Finish line.
