It gets "warm" because that's where the downpipes are.

What? Dp's are hanging off the turbos, and they are right beside the engine. Even mid pipes would at best be under your feet.

Can't say I've ever noticed the trans tunnel gets anything. But from now on i will give it a little rub ;-)

Don't worry its all normal, if you could see the turbine housings,front cats and exhaust manifolds at full load or flat out in 4th gear you would freak out. All these parts are RED hot @ around 700deg its all normal and all that heat goes under your ass. Just turn on the AC
