I have a ntc3 and I want a sirio .12 or a picco .12. the reviews for the picco are not very promising so if anybody has any experience with these engines, any info would be great on what to get

I owned the sirio. Definitely go with the picco. My sirio didn't even make it through a season of 8 races. I had to replace it near the end of the season.

Both engines are quite good actually. I run Orion (made by Sirio) and I have a Picco Torque and they are both very competitive in sedan racing.

+1 I myself just like Scott When I ran sedan I ran Sirio Evo3 & Evo4 most of the time I seen others drivers have issues it was driver error over leaning it out Now Im running 1/8th & running picco the Quality is way much better than it was in the past

It says that it requires a standard glow plug, will running it with a turbo glow plug hurt it?

You can't put a turbo plug in that unless you change to a turbo button. What year and version is that motor. It looks like a off-road motor I could be wrong.
