Andrzej, thanks for the link to the exhaust cover. My cat is inside an insulated housing, but it still probably gets hotter than the oil pan, for example on long uphills.

As for the oil it is air cooled An oil-coolant heat exchanger would allow the engine to warm up more evenly, but I don't think that the investment is worth while at the moment.

As for the alt and A/C I also think that they need some cooling. On the other hand, a car that is in a traffic jam in the summer will have very high temperatures under the hood, with no breeze to cool it down.

I'm thinking that maybe the post-IC duct could allow a bit of air through - not as much as now, but more than nothing. And of course it would be for colder months.
