Default Difference in Plug

Can some one explain the difference in using a Turbo C" glow plug very cold C8 TGC Novarossi and Turbo F" glow plug extra cold C8 TGF Novarossi and the difference between a short and long plug.

In Panamá we a have a very hummed and hot weather, 80 to 90% humidity and 28 to 34 degree.

Thanks

Turbo Glow Plugs where designed to give more performance to an engine, for the following reasons:

·It forms an uninterrupted combustion chamber.
·The advantage of better heat transfer or heat dissipation, and a leak proof seal, generated by the conical seat of the plug.
·The greater choice of thermal ranges, that allow for more precise tuning according to variations in weather conditions (temperature, humidity, height, barometric pressure, etc.).

The numbers and characters on the plugs, are the product number, wire thickness, and thermal range of the plug’s body. Example: The Mega Turbo 2315 6TF

Product Number: 2315
Wire Thickness: 6
Plug Type: T (Turbo)
Thermal Range: F (Fredda)(Cold)

The plugs with cold thermal range F (Fredda), have a body with thinner walls and shorter body, so they dissipate heat better and faster to the engine head. The plugs with hot thermal range C (Calda), have a body with thicker walls and longer body, so they dissipate heat better and faster to the engine head. The number of threads is the same on both types of plugs.

·When the ambient temperature is high, we have to use a plug with thicker wire.
·Humidity determines if we use a Cold (F) thermal range, or Hot (C)(Calda) thermal range.
·With high humidity percentage we should use a Hot (C) thermal range plug.
·If we have high temperature and high humidity, we should use a plug with thick wire and a Hot(C) thermal range.

The best instrument to determine which Turbo Plug to use, is those weather panels they sell for Yachts, that have Temp, Humidity and Barometric Pressure on them. Have it calibrated at your local weather station, and bingo, you’re ready like the Pros.
That is the key to success or failure tuning engines with Turbo Glow Plugs, because they are so sensitive to weather variations that is unbelievable.

Following is a selection chart for Novarossi Turbo Glow Plugs:

Type-Range-Temp.C°-Humidity%

C5TC-Hot/hot wire-0 to10- 70to100
C6TC-Hot/average wire-10to16- 70to100
C7TC-Hot/cold wire-16to25- 70to100
C8TC-Hot/ultra cold wire-25and up- 70to100
C5TF-Cold/hot wire-0to10- 40to70
C6TF-Cold/average wire-10to15- 40to70
C7TC-Cold/cold wire-16to25- 40to70
C8TF-Cold/ultra cold wire-25and up- 40to70

Hope this helps you

Ok, for those interested, I've posted the 2006 EFRA 200mm European Championships race report online at [http://3hobby.net]3hobby.net[/url].

Even more important, Mark Green has shared his setup and it is now in the downloads section. To those who PM'ed me for it, thanks to Mark, you have it!
