Default os glow plug difference??

What is the difference between the os p7 and RP7 glow plugs. I know the are both for a turbo engine. a p came from a tz and the rp came from the xz but the xz replaced the tz. They are the same heat range plug. Can you use a p7 in a xz engine? I have a xz engine now but have p7's left over from my tz. Is there really any difference between the plugs??

I think you will find that the rp7 has replaced the p7 and the main difference is in the element which is the same thickness but bigger in the diameter of the coil.
What does this mean ???? latest and greatest. I have used both and gone half a second a lap quicker with the rp7....................NOT

haha yea thats what i was figuring. I wanted to make sure it was good. I knew it had to be the same heat range. But something had to change. I just wanted to make sure everything was good with it. I have 2 p7's left over from my tz that i had and now i have a xz.
