I run a dynamite gen1 which is also an SH based engine. If it's above 70 degrees F I use a dynamite platinum hot, if it's below 65 degrees F I use a Dynamite Platinum cold or medium. I haven't had much luck with the OS plugs in SH engines

Im just the opposite. I run a colder plug when its hot outside and vise versa. If its 35 degrees outside the engine needs a little more heat is the way I see it. Also I was told the same by an engine builder. Makes sense to me and works the same.

Hotter plugs are better used in humid conditions, it helps burn the moisture off in the air/fuel mixture. A hotter plug will also give you a larger tuning window but at the sacrifice of a little power.

A colder plug is better used in dry air. They will make a little more power but your tuning window is smaller.
