Does anyone else have issues with the amount of heat these engines give off?
I can literally feel the heat from the engine on my legs through the front firewall. It's like I've got the floor heat running all the time. Is there a way to reduce the heat? Is it a header issue? I have a set of Hedman headers on it now. I'm looking to replace the carpet so I was thinking of putting down some sort of Dynmat type stuff to try and quiet it down and hopefully block out some of the heat. Not sure if it will work very well versus the cost to do it. Any thoughts or ideas?
Do you think some sort of Dynomat type material would help block some of the heat from the cockpit?
I guess it couldn't hurt if I'm taking the carpet out to replace it any way. It would make it tighter and quieter at the least.
Of course my entire engine bay looks pretty ragged right now. I've concentrated all my time and money getting it running and driving right as well as the parts that everyone sees as I rolling down the street
I have ceramic shorties and the hot air is blasting my toes all the time. I gotta pull the dash to replace the heater core and A/C evaporator so Im thinking about laying down extra dynomat on the firewall and over the trans tunnel.
