    I know for forced induction it keeps knocking and pre-ignition down when running high compresion ratio or boost. This is especially usefull when you are beating on the car.

    I currently run 2 stages cooler. 3 stages causes my car to foul them out too easily because my tune is too rich.

    When you spray nitrous oxide you need to step down in heat ranges to help with keeping detination down. My last car I nitrous on was a 97 eclipse (I no longer own) and I ran two stages colder than stock because I was spraying anyway from 50 to 75 horsepower through that poor little 4cyl.
