    And the exhaust is on the left side? Look to see where the exhaust goes and how its clamped. Exhaust leaks?

    its a jdm 4age bigport 3rib, temp guage always saying its at mid temp so i dont know what it could be caused by, sometimes its on average degree days, exhaust is on left side, standard jdm exhaust system. i might get it checked for leaks i guess

    i used to get this in my last ae86. my left leg would always warm up then hurt on a long drive. figured it was normal because i had an old ford whos transmission would warm up as much on a nice drive

    yeh its definitely not normal guys. i cant see it being exhaust related as it runs down the other side, could be g/box related as above...

    next time it gets real hot see if you can get under there and feel/see whats actually getting hot (apart from the tunnel obviously)
