I would think if you left it stock no harm,but if you hop it up it would probably run a little hotter is my guess and that all depends on the level of mods too.

The piston temp will probably run a little hotter. That's why the HO's got the spray--to help cool the piston. If you pay attention to your EGT, you will probably be fine.
