When I engaged the mixture, I set 90C. After flight (not hard), the backplate was cold, and power was about the same as it had been, mayb ea bit less.

Set 100C and the backplate came down warm, but more power.

I think the backplate gets hot when the engine is running hotter (leaner) than it should. Cool backplate with good power is a GOOD thing.
