Lets start with how are you measuring these temperatures so accurately?
Oh yes the spark can happen faster and with more intensity depending on the what the spark plug is made out of. Have you never watched any videos of different spark plugs sparking? I thought this was pretty common knowledge for gear heads. Go watch some videos on the 4 prong type plugs, they seems to have some latency in their sparking action to them.

If you read my first post, you would know how the measurement was done. By the gauge in the cluster. Now if I had know this was going to happen, I would have logged the temps with my Durametric, it just turned out to be a unexpected surprise.
