Default Glow plug for STS 5 port turbo....

As a general rule of thumb. Turbo plugs where designed with .21 engines in mind. Get the hottest plug you can find, to eliminate tuning problems. These types of plugs run colder than comparable standard plugs on the temp range. Dino that's service. I have heard good things about your motors keep up the good work. I might just try your motors and see how well they respond to mods. If I buy one how hard is it to get 2 extra sleeves and a crank? Do I get a special pricing for this kind of purchase?

i have the sts12 - it's a very strong motor - i needed some work done to it and dino offered to fix it personally - i just sent him the motor and he said he would take care of it. that IS good service!
