Chinamat is for rattles not heat.

Mine was hot too. Gets better with floor covering etc, plus I wrapped the pipes.

Fuel pump not lines... Again sound deadening could help.

Hmmm the sound is only heard along the firewall as it goes up, not along the car.

The chinamat is so hot I can't keep my hand on it. Engine coolant maxing at 102deg

I have hose that runs up the firewall so couldn't really say what it would be. Maybe it needs more securing as what could possibly be making noise in the lines.
The floor pan was so hot I could not put my feet on either. We made the floor flat which insulated it and then underlay and carpet. All good now. It's what you get squeezing it all in a little engine bay.

NES I'm with JB even with just the V6 my floor pan gets pretty hot especially around the gearbox hump carpet and underlay have helped a lot.
How close is your exhaust the the floor pan?
Getting closer mate.

She's snug so I might have to wrap it.
Unsure how much that'll work. Found 15m black for $30. May have to get a few. The extractors I made were jet hot coated and still made the paint blister in the bay

With my v6 the floor front and back got very hot, this is where I had the muffler.
Put in a piece of flat gal sheet as a heat shield between floor and exhaust and that solved the problem.
Suspended on brackets with an air gap between  both floor and exhaust.

What about some heat shielding from a commo? Might be able to rig it up.

Nah, not the whole pipes, but under front floors or mufflers, then wrap the rest?

Not much on at the moment.

Pete sent some engine cover badges to swap out the HSV crap ones
I can't believe how good they've come up. Thanks Pete!!!!!!!


Although I can't decide between red writing or not.


Anyway here's the whole bit. Lighting doesn't do it justice
