Torque Tube Heat - What is Normal? Empty Torque Tube Heat - What is Normal?

Post  superman22x on Tue Jun 18, 2019 8:04 pm

I have very few miles on my car in general, but I've been messing with my shifter and linkage due to my 01E swap. After a couple mile drive, I parked the car and took the shifter out of the console. In doing that, I noticed the hole area was quite warm. The passenger side seat belt buckle bolt was also hot to the touch. I'm wondering if this is common, or I potentially have some bearings in the torque tube going bad and making an abnormal amount of heat... I have dual 2.5" exhaust, so I imagine that adds in a lot of heat compared to stock.

i noticed the same thing on my car a while ago, had to adjust the shifter after i had driven the car for a while and found it was quite warm around the tube and tunnel. my exhaust it tucked up as close to the torque tube as i could get it, and i really doubt much air is getting up into that area to dissipate heat, so i didnt think much of it.

That's good to hear then, I was a little surprised. I didn't think the bushing on the shifter would take much heat, but it seems to be in fine shape.

It's normal. There is a lot of heat there, mainly from the exhaust.
