That is details.... the existing holes can be stretchen up or you can drill new holes. If the use of NR plugs is wanted you can make it work for just 14 dollar.

Why go thru all this hustle? just use a PICCO plug! and as Colt4g63 just said "The head button/combustion chamber has ALOT to do with how the engine performs. Just throwing any head button on an engine is not a good idea"

Yes, the shape of the combustion chamber can make a difference but more important is the volume because the amount of compression is setting the ignition timing. But hey, I am only doing a sugestion that I know it will work but if the use of NR plugs is still wanted you can always buy an NR (made) engine....

Merlin, OS, and Dynamite plugs work in Picco engines.
NR and O'Donnel do not seal properly. I have had O'Donnel plugs work with SOME Piccos, but for the most part it won't work. Taper seems to be the same, but threads come down to far and prevent proper seal.

Unless ppl has problem finding PICCO/MEGA plug...why challenge their design and use something that is NOT any cheaper and already proved not going to be better...?

When MEGA engine released, Paolo from Serpent USA already mentioned MEGA/PICCO must use MEGA/PICCO plugs because the taper are different then others...he has pictures to compare them side by side. So, it is a MUST do and nothing ppl can change about.

I am not 100% sure MEGA plugs is a direct fit on all the later PICCO engine or not...

Mega 6 cold's are working great in my red dot. Mega's MF .12 is a Novarossi engine, and it uses mega plugs. I'm assuming being a novarossi engine it also uses novarossi plugs....which leads me around the circle to wonder if a novarossi plug and mega plug would be the same, as they both work in this Mega/Rossi engine. Around here finding a Picco Plug is impossible, so i've been using the mega's perfectly fine.
