Good to hear from you again. You raise a really good point and I'm going to devise a solution ASAP. There are some other things I can do as well. Insulate the fuel pipes with asbestos tape, perhaps find a large piece of asbestos and place it between the exhaust headers and the air intake plenum. Also, I failed to mention that my car does not have its insulating blanket on the inside of the hood. Since the car is a dark color it may be radiating heat when the sun is beating down on it. To work.........
