Drive with the top down, or use AC. Thats the only way in the summer. Mine is just as bad with carpet.

Mine isn't even boosted and it gets super hot. The bare spot on the trans tunnel where the carpet is cut out around the shifter will burn me at anything more than a second. You can feel the heat radiating from the tunnel area in the summer. Anything outside of lining the outside of the tunnel/floor pan will not help much. Gotta keep the heat from getting on the tunnel in the first place.

Another +1 for Reflectix - cheap, lightweight, effective.

Yeah, but then $11.50 to ship it.

Want this, but will try reflectix first since I'm pulling carpet for frame rails, seat install, and black instead of tan floor piece anyhow.
