Weird thing Happening?

So I was at the track today and after a 20~25min session i opened to trunk and my god it was like an oven in there. It was a dramatic increase in temperature from before the session, i had to empty the trunk before the session. Has anyone experienced this? I am thinking it has to be the exhaust or something? can anyone point me in a solution? FYI I am running a AA HFC Xpipe with a UUC axel back. Thanks all for the help!!

Seems normal to me.My trunk also gets hot on long drives not to mention long sessions on a fast track like Mosport or WGI.I have the BMW Performance exhaust only.

Mine also gets really hot. It got hot enough to melt the bond of the duct tape I had holding my EDC sims to the top of the trunk, annoying.

so this is a pretty typical situation? is there anything I can do to reduce the heat level? I am pretty sure i could cook a chicken in there....

When I go at the track, I put a frozen pizza in the trunk for that last session before lunch break. After the session, voilą, perfectly cooked pizza for lunch .

Kidding aside, seems pretty normal to me .

My guess is that a catless or high flow setup might contribute to added heat since there are no cats/less cats to hold the exhaust heat in.

You could try. There are already heat shields under the car but if you are concerned, then give it a shot.

Yes, and with DCT you can actually eat the pizza while driving the last session.
