I was thinking about maybe placing Dynamat down in those areas. My thought was that it might block out some of the heat being transfered. Im not sure, but I think one of those companies made a material for the firewall and / or the hood with multiple layers. Anyone think this might work?

i think i put a chocolate milkshake in the cup holder a while ago and went shopping...when i came back it was more like chocolate milk....try driving 200 miles and then putting you hand on anything that is below the a/c unit and it will be hot!
Originally posted by buggsc3 Anyone have problems with excess heat from the fire wall and / or the center console? How can you stop it.
Exhaust system is most likely the cause , since its temperature is the greatest. Less air you allow to flow under the car by lowering it or instaling funky air dams more heat would be transfered to the body.
If you see this as problem you may help by better insulating the passanger compartment from it.
Make sure that factory heat shields are in place. Glass matt behind shields. Heat wrap the exhaust pipe. Additional insulation under the carpet and then add extra heavy paded rugs.
Also makes sure your engine is in good working order and there is no missfire or other condition causing raw fuel burnout in catalitycs.
