14.7 (stoichiometric) will of course yield the most complete burn, but as you probably know most 930's idle a bit better with a richer mixture. A lot depends on your build and overall state of tune. 14.7 at idle shouldn't be concern for damage, if that's what you're thinking (personally, I would shoot for something closer to 13.7-14.0). More important is where it's at when cruising and/or on boost.

Make sure that your IC is well sealed to the deck, so as much air as possible is drawn through it...rather than around it, and that your engine tin(s) and perimeter seal are all fitting properly. That's about all you can do to maximize air cooling.

One other solution is to not drive the car when it's hot outside :-) ,but what fun would that be?
