Hot potato passengers floor board

Noticed a hot smell since I've been driving the 85 to work and discovered the passengers floor is almost hot enough to burn my hand. I can keep my hand on it no problem. Feel like wet concrete that been in the sun all day on a 75 degree day. It's not smoking but I think it has something to do with the rediculous cerry bomb that under that area

Two choices…heat shield, or ditch the ridiculous cherry bomb.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

Is the packing inside insulating the heat or something? I think I may ditch it, it makes the exhaust sound like crap and let's the clicks pass through.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

Could I wrap it in header wrap to keep radiation down?

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

I guess ou could...but it probably won't last for long. Just get a better muffler.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

Is your timing somewhat retarded? That usually causes hot exhaust.

On S10s, the cat is located under the passenger floorboard with a heat sheild above it. The muff is behind that before the axle as you know.
If you don't have a cat any more, I suggest running a pipe in its place and relocating the g pack to where the muff is usually located.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

its at about 15 btdc, installed new cam straight up and it has 4 degrees ground in so its at 19 btdc. the bomb has a large radius so it brings the bomb closer to the crossmember and floor pan. been cat free since 2008 egr is also disabled.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

Muffs are subjective... I prefer redhead ones myself... a little fluffy...

A flowblaster is way loud on the V6. Try a regular turbo form Jegs or Summit. They are cheap and not too quiet.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

I put an 18" Magnaflow on my 2.8 and it's not very loud.

Re: Hot potato passengers floor board

The old Walker muffler that was on it was super quiet, however I lost it at 65 mph on the highway one day when it decided to fall off the tailpipe and intermediate pipe. I might have to just get a whole new walker setup. New y, new intermediate,, and new walker tailpipe.

I'm okay with the redheads too......But brunettes can be nice too.

My floorboard on my truck is hot as hell there too. To the point of ridiculous...I don't think this is as uncommon as you'd think. When I put the 3.4 in my truck I had the carpet out. It was July outside and I could feel the heat on either side coming through my shoes and the heat radiating off the floor. The carpet padding/mat keeps that heat at bay. Since mine has headers that may contribute some, but it was still hot even with the manifolds.
