Default Sirio 12 glow plug.

I was looking at getting a cold plug for the Sirio (Trinity recommends colder plugs for this engine) and was wondering if anyone had any recommendations?
Trinity recommended the Rossi #7 Cold plug but since it is out of stock at Tower I was looking at what appears to be the Trinity equivalent:

Would anyone know if this plug is the same length as the Rossi cold plug?

Thanks in advance.

You should try this one. I use this in all my mod and non mod nova based engines.

first time run sirio outlaw with OS #6 and burned two of them and now running with OS#7 turbo plug safely !

LHS told that novarossi plug has a little bigger thread diameter and will mess up the sirio head button.

I should of mentioned it is Non-turbo. The one thing I'm concerned about is a Sirio tech rep. told me that the R5 plug I was running is too short and too hot. I want to be certain to get the proper plug as I don't have a LHS and everything takes about a week to get from Tower.

I use MC59 plugs with 20% Nitro and MC8 or MC9 with 30 % Nitro.

for 30%, I use a novarossi #8 plug. I used 4-6 just for testing and found that #7 and #8 are good to use with 30%.
