Looks beautiful. I have a bunch of Picco pipes and plugs already. Wonder if they can be run with the Sirio?

The plugs work though Sirio (LM) plugs are even better. Don't know about the pipes.

LM is the actual manufacturer of Sirio, Werks, and others. The new IDMs will be LM and apparently these new Capricorns as well. You used to be able to get LM plugs here from either Sirio or IDM importers but recently all you can get are the Werks offroad plugs. Hopefully with IDM and Capricorn going back to LM they will be available again. Best plugs I've ever used.

+1

The Onroad Werks/LM plugs are available at Absolute Hobbyz I don't know anyone else that has the Onroad version.

I asked Joe to get them about a year ago, they are easily the best plug available

Here is the link... Scroll down past the offroad to the Onroad plugs #6 Medium #7 Cold

Yes. Even when IDMs were Picco based, his plugs were LM. They should work on most anything except maybe OS. They are great in Novas too.
