Default Which Turbo Novarossi Plug Siro S12-TRP Pro

Hi guys,

I am having trouble finding a plug that fits the above in the Novarossi range. I have the C6TF which doesn't fit, can't someone help me?

Thanks

Sami

SAMI

According to the SIRIO engine bulletins from Trinity (USA importer for Sirio), they recommend Sirio turbo plug S001720127, which is equivalent to Novarossi C7TGF.
Hope this helps

I don't want to be NAZI here, but doesn't this belong in the Engine Forum?

I think you'll find that Sirio turbo plugs and Nova Rossi turbo plugs both have different tapers on the plug, which basically means you can't use a Nova Rossi plug in a Sirio.

Best bet is to stick with Sirio plugs, you only need the Sirio 7, the Sirio 6 you'd only use in really cold climates

Hope this helps

Maybe not all Novarossi turbo plugs, but the C7TGF is the one recommended by Trinity/Sirio.
This is a resume of what is specified at Tower Hobbies for that engine.

Well I know for sure that Sirio themselves wouldn't advise using a Nova Rossi plug in there engines!

As for Trinity and Tower Hobbies, who knows???????

Personally I'd stick with Sirio plugs.

Sami,

I use the Nova plugs that I got from F1's. I've been using them since I got my engine and hadn't had any issue with them. I don't exactly know which one from Nova, but I'll check and let you know if I see you on the track.

The only advice is make sure you don't thread the head when you are putting them in. They should go in easily no force required!!!
