To control temp or to change the range of the plug the amount of ceramic exposed in the end of the plug determines how hot it will be. If the ceramic is recessed alot in the end of the plug the colder it is, the more exposed the hotter it is. The more power you make the more heat you can generate. so finding the right plug to live in extreme motors is a neccessity. As Goran states you can go to cold and foul the plug. Climate, elevation, and all elements of nature definetly play a part. But if you have normal mods to your 930, only 1 or 2 heat ranges colder would be sufficient.
Best advice I've read lately regarding modified engines.
