Just like the title says... my engine bay gets really really hot... I have the SSQ kit and the pipe and BOV are hot, to the point where your hand gets uncomfortable if you leave it on too long...

I doubt this is normal, but if it is, what can I do about it?


Also, my fan seems to stay engaged longer than it should... i can hear it upto about 3k then hear it disengage... is it supposed to stay on that long? I don't remember the 88T we used to have doing that....

um, turbos make things hot, i can hardly touch anything after i run the car for awhile, if you really want to let some heat out you can take out the stripping around the hood, or go JDM wannbe and put some spacers in the rear of the hood to raise it up and let some heat out

that's fine, it just seemed un-naturally hot... just wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong :)

underhood temps are usually 100+ anything near the turbo/exhaust will be even more..

taking the seal out of the back of the hood doesn't do anything, since it's a pressure zone (ever heard of cowl induction?)

Yes it's hot, and anything that's metal on that side of the engine bay is gonna be searing hot. Personally I want a Stout style hood bad to get rid of all that awful heat...

I couldn't tell from the avatar if you had a heat shield on the turbo or not. When I had my heat shield off at one point, everything above it got too hot to touch compared to with it on.

Its on, yes :)

It sucks cuz it looks badass without the heatshield, but its not worth it :)

check your timing - if u are running to lean or advance timing things will get hotter then normal - this is what i was faced with - properly tuned car and it stays a hell of a lot cooler

My timing is at 10 degrees. I checked that cuz I'm getting alot of backfiring, i thought that might be why....

I imagine they do, however what you said was pretty far from funny.... :dumbass:

You took the front bumper off? :faint:

I've put a small vent slightly behind and above where the turbo sits - take a look here:
