Default Glow plugs.

Hi people

I live in the UK and am finding it hard to locate some Sirio turbo glow plugs. Are there any equal or better alternatives? I can easily get hold of Nova's or RB's but I think they are the same and not very good.

I am currently using a Mega ZX21 and will probably upgrade to a Kangaroo or Flash later in year.

Regards.

I love Sirio plugs but can be tough to find here as well, Fortunately there are some identical brands: Werks, the new Orion, probably Capricorn as well.

Capricorn and IDM plugs are both Sirio plugs. Best plug on the market.

The GRP plugs are also back in the old quality.
Xceed plugs are also made by the maker of the GRP plugs

Also, the new Nova C8TGH plugs are very good.

Thanks guys for the info!

I am able to get most of those, are the heat ranges similar? I normally use a turbo cold 7 mega plug.

Very close. I would say the Sirios are just a touch colder then Novas but about the same as a Picco or GRP.

Think I'll go for the Xceed then. If they are the same as the GRP's then hopfully will be a great plug.
