Traffic & Hot Roads - Under Hood - Temps got Very Hot - I say so Dang Hot I couldn't Hang onto the Oil Drip Stick - Pull . "EWOsserrr" was that Hot .. so took a Pit Stop with Hood Up for 1/2 Hr. , while We all got Cold Drinks - Road Temp 126 Degrees , Heat coming Off all the Motors & Big Rig Trucks - Air Temp had to be 110 .. In Heavy Traffic on way back .. ( Storm was Approaching ) Air Temps Dropped to 82 Degrees & Traffic Thinned way out ,so the last 30 miles home only running 60 Mph , Turned Off the Air and slow drive 1/2 miles into the Garage . PARKED with Hood Up .. 40 Min. later the Turbo was still 167 Degrees .. so Earlier 85 miles back the Turbo had to be Cherry Hot ! ( Is there No Water Coolant - Temp Over Run on Shut Down ? ) As that was Easy Shut Down .. VW had one I could Actually hear it Run for like 20-30 sec. after Hot Shut Down !

Also _ Thinking - this - Engine Bay needs some Air Flow Tweaks - I'm IR Gun everything tomorrow .
Going to Tweak the Engine Bay Hood - Rubber Seal Gasket ( Thinking 14-18" right above the Intake )
Let Upper Heat Out - Especially Parked . . Seeing Exhaust is Sitting right under the Intake ..

I'm also Looking at the Under Tray for Hot Engine Bay - Exit Air Flow SIZE . . Sq. Inches .. ( Will be Dependent on Upper Tweak )
Sure Heat is OK for the Exhaust to Maintain , but at 45-75 Mph - the Heat Build Up Under the Hood
in the Mountains isn't helping .. anything ..

Pulling Oil Filter tomorrow ..

Testing Being Done .. It's Cooler Now as it Rain Earlier so Dropped from 90 - 80 Degrees . . Test Being done on 10 Mile Drive only Stated with Cool Drive-train.

1. First Up - Air Intake Temps : Being Checked Note Pic's Reading on Calibrated Instrument . Two Readings 1. toward the Air Swing Down to Turbo , Other 4-5 Inches Towards
Right , some what Closer to Turbo . 137 Degrees , 141 Degrees ..

2. Second Up - Oil & Water Center of Turbo - Which Equals Bearing Center Section - Oil there usually flows in a Bearing Surrounding Effect - Floating Effect.
Water Flows Through the Mid Section - always has much Larger Presences Area then Oil - If Honda Designers Supplied to Much Oil - : Read :
( Larger Area ) it might move to Slow and therefore Burn & Blow Past Seals . . OK
Pic's I see are 50 Degrees Hotter then what - I have seen Before .. but Only there other Makes and Models - a Larger Sample should be Submitted .
Degrees 286.8 and 311.1 Degrees - I took 10 Readings - the - Readings Leaned Toward 287 Degrees More ..

Please Investigate Proper Oil Temps . . If You Take Note at My Direct Inquiry - You Will See the Engine Cover Off , The Hood Up , and
Rear Engine Bay - Seal Removed .
I have already Noted Hood Temps 85-90 Degree after short run Parked in 75 Degree Shade for 4-5 Min. / Seal Removal Area - Back of Hood
105 Degrees coming Off - Where there Wasn't !! : Read : Sitting Idling - ( NOT MOVING )

While on the Topic of Engine Bay Heat and Heat Effecting other Parts of Intake system , Fuel Lines , Turbo Exit & Inter-cooler Entrance . .
I'll Try to bring You in from the Dark , and Into the Light the Light . .

Note the 3 Colors on Turbo Exit Pipe : Hey what do You Think those are - 3 Musketeers , Nope - 3 Inspections - Nope - all in same place and same Area ? Just Happen to be on Turbo ?

Now that this has been brought to light , what say thee ?

Heat Sensitive Paint - I'll bet some Money on It !
I didn't get a Letter saying Honda Dyno-d My Motor . . so what is This ? ____________ ( Cough ) Warranty Watching !

I Take It Your Referring to the Color Dots ?

I have seen Mechanics use something like this - usually much Larger - Noting Their Fix or Repair - Trace to see anyone else has Touched it ..

It's Possible an Inspection During the Line , but 3 Inspectors or 3 Stages of Inspection all in the Same Area ?
It's Not like they are Dropping Chassis on to a Frame ,so a Frame is riding down Long Assembly Line ..with many Checks going on..

I Washed My Bay and the Dots are all Still There .. I Hit the Area on Purpose ..

I have also seen Heat Sensitive Paint Used on the ABS Brake Area's - back - when ABS was a Fairly New Item . .
I'll be Pulling the Part Off - Over the Winter - I'll Test It then ..to see and Report Back ..

Just Up Date to this Temperature Inquiry , with the Firewall Seal Off for the Past Month - Normal Runs were well Controlled ..
Over Last 2 weeks with Temps Dropping , Really Loves 70 Degrees , but as the Temps got Down to 60 and Cooler at Night . It's Time to Place the Engine Bay Seal Back On .
I still have the Oil Filter ( Air ) Guide Off - which allows Larger Flow to be Pulled through the Bottom . Read ( Larger Opening )

I will Replace that Before Winter ..
For Sure Thou On Hot Days on Hot Roads in Mountains - 60 Mph to 85 Mph where it's working more then Average ~ Compared to Semi Flat Freeway Cruising - Serious Heat Control is Needed .
If You Don't have the Firewall Seal Removed in these Type Conditions , You better be Running 91-92-93 Best in Your State . Seal Removed - I'd still be Using 91 Min. in Very Hot Conditions ..

If You have a Tune , You better be getting IC & Mid Pipe at Least . . or Your Oil and It's Additive Packs going to Be all used up 5K even using 92 ..

OK back from 1400 miles Trip and say the Cooler Temps - seem to have Cooled Oil Consumption , it Honda 2.0T is Finally Fully Seated ? ~ 4K on Motor Now . .
Seems to Love the 60 Degree Temps !

Around 40 Degrees Thou Engine is Burning more Fuel do to Coolant Stat being more Closed ..
Tire Pressure seems to be Largest Factor , Rolling Resistance second ( Tires & Lighter Wheels ) and Aero Dynamics next . .
