Cooling is the primary reason for the squirters but they do provide lubrication as a side effect. If the piston only needed lubrication the oil flung off the crank would be enough.

There is not a big oil buring issue since the squirter is aimed at the bottom of the piston so much of the oil does not end up on the cylinder walls. If it did it might be too much oil for the rings to deal with.

I believe the original 930 squirter was the same used on the 935 so I am not that concerned about the bottom of the pistons needing more cooling oil.

I am concerned about head temps so I have opened up the oil holes in my cam tower spray bars just a smidgen.
