To answer the question regarding whether the low temp is; number one is the lack of combustion efficiency at the reduced temp, unburnt fuel can wash cylinder walls which reduces lubrication, reduced compression because the anticipated expansion of the block and other parts does not occur, and many would disagree that even 160* is too low (unless you're fighting detonation).
