So...I really may not have any heat shields missing...it really does get hot? I'm talkin, it feels like I have the heat turned on to setting 2-3 the whole time...I turn on the max ac so cool air comes out the feet and then it's ok ish..

lol yeah i've kinda gotten used to sweating while driving my car. i don't know why, but i really hate using the a/c in my car. i'll still use it as a last resort, but thats it.

^^I second you on that. I hate AC..my fiance on the other hand LOOOVES it. Even 10 min short drives she will throw it on in her car....gets frigging stuffy feeling and uugggh. I so much rather windows down.

Devon, try to put the Dynamat on the underside....I don't see what you could lose. As long as it doesn't melt etc from being close to the exhaust. I don't know what the average heat rating on that stuff is and if it will stay stuck to the undercarriage in high heat and or wet conditions. You could turn it upside down(foil facing down) don't peel the back off and stuff it under your rug....That's what I would try if I had some laying around. This crap is too expensive to go "experiment" with.

yeah funny you posted this as I was thinking the same thing. On a 90 degree day for get about it my is hot as hell. Lets just say blower cars don't really like 95 plus degree days and they suck for convertible driving anyway.

I was kidding about my statement prior. lol I agree with all of you, my car does get hot as hell inside. But one thing I did notice, is that after I swapped from my stock midpipe with those dreadful 4 cats to my MAC o/r H....it is noticeably cooler.
