Default HELLA HOT!

My EGR spacer, and my throttle body are getting really hot. It doesn't matter if my cooling lines are connected or not, it seems its the same temp.

Is this normal?

The only reason you are noticing it is b/c you just did that work. Trust me, that happens alot. PPl are always more aware of something after the fact. Your old stuff got just as hot believe me.
