Default Colder plugs. Anyone run them?

Is anyone here running colder plugs with their set up? Is there any benefit to running colder plugs with boost on these motors 90-97 1.6 or 1.8

Some of us who converted to Miller-cycle are running hotter plugs and loving it.

well would you look at that, I never mentioned plugs. well ----.

if you have a 1.6L get BKR7Es.
if you have a 1.8L get stock 1.6L plugs (BKR6Es).

if you want most power, run the hottest plug you can without detonation.
