Heat shields made up and trying to figure out where to put some fans in the back.
Well putting the heat wrap on the muffler made it a lot cooler but the trunk was still getting to much heat on it so I put some aluminum over the muffler and it has stopped almost all the heat from getting through to the trunk lid. I need to clean it up and make a better spacer for it so it stays about 1/4 inch off the muffler and it should work out perfectly. I still need to wrap up the rest of the exhaust system with heat tape, there are still a few exposed pipes and the manifolds need covered.
The last picture of this series shows the trunk lid with a fan sitting inside the fenderwell. I will put a smaller fan there but the general idea is to have a fan on either side that run at low speed during normal temperatures of about 90 – 130 degrees. Over that they will switch to high speed and try and keep the underhood temp under control. I am still debating on where to mount the fans but that seems to be the best spot to put them. Once I get the 8 inch fans here I will know for sure where to mount them to make sure they work as good as possible keeping the trunk area cool.
