Hi
Engine bay heat in the BA is a real problem IMO :( . Some of the hosing near the air intake and the airbox can get so hot - I am sure they effect the temp of the air intake. Anybody have any ideas regarding heat shielding - such as engine covers or covers over some of the hoses and the inlet manifold?

mm all u can do is maybe get som ef/el style bonnet scoops to remove the hot air..
or get the exhaust heat wraped or HPC coated.

also above the firewall between the bonnet there is a rubber sealing strip ..
remove this as it allows airflow through the engine bay ;)

you can even go to the extremes of adding some washers to thebonnet hinges so there is a bigger gap at the back of the bonnet

Is it a new car? still in the run-in period?
As I recall, the engine runs hot during run in. probably due to a higher friction rate til it settle into the right tolerance.
use higher octane fuel during that time, stay away frrom regular u/l petrol otherwise she'll be running to much timing advance=heat

feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
