the answer is both. plug temp affects timing, timing affcts engine temp. if you go too cold, you will have late ignition, uneven burn and excess heat because scavenging has been impared. ideally you want ignition advanced but not to the point to cause detonation. CR, nirto %, needle setting and plug all contribute to operating temp.
