Default Hot passenger floor board

I recently purchased a 2006 GT. This is my first Mustang ever, and the first V8/rear-wheel drive Iíve owned for quite some time. It has come to my attention that the passenger floorboard gets quite hot, but the drivers side does not. I realize it is rather close to the transmission, but is this normal?

I own an '01 which is a completely different car, but the following principal or theory remains the same.... It is likely heat generated from the exhaust, which is routed very near to the transmission tunnel. My car does not have any sort of heat shield between the exhaust and trans tunnel sheetmetal, not sure on the 05-09 cars. May be worth sliding under the car for a look at things, but from what you describe it sounds pretty normal. Obviously if you have melting carpet or something like that then that's a problem but otherwise I wouldn't be very concerned.
