would'nt it decrease compression because of the slightly larger volume inside the glow plug?

Yes as turbo plugs seal at the bottom so it will give you more cylinder volume

Cheers

In comparison to a shorter plug, the longer reach plug will go deeper into the combustion chamber , therefore increase compression , even though the area inside the plug has more volume , the walls around that area also increases and open air that was already open its now just taken up by more metal. So the compression increases.

A turbo plug does not enter the cylinder, it seal at the bottom so this is not correct.

Thought we were talking about regular. Then your right , it will stand higher so less compression on turbo plug long. It also doesnt seal from the bottom , but the sides as it tapers or cones.
