the guy's here (warm spot ) use 6's.... they use 7's if they go to 30% fuel (in the US ).. make sure you use Picco plug's as othere don't seal correctly and cause leaning out and motor failure..( have see this )...but i would say to use a Picco 6 for turbo....

you don't need to add a shim....i'm not sure about removing any....are you usuing 16% fuel ?

Hi Michael, the IDM i run is very similar to the red dot. both engines are picco based and i use the ninja 6 plugs. as for the shims, i tried one removed for 16% recomendation and then refitted it. the top end is a bit better with both shims fitted. yu can gain a bit more bottom end with one shim removed. as for the pipe i used the IDM 2607 pipe, with great results. with gearing, the std ED trans gearing is fine for the engine and pipe combo. if you need a bit more low end then put on a 52t 1st spur. but i generally leave the 46t 2nd spur on all the time.

this is good info....and no i use a TZ 3P...but there are G4S at my track that use the JLR RED DOT and they are FAST!....it's a great motor and i plan to buy one to have in my arsenal of extra's...

A PICCO P6TH or a P6TC will work.
