Oldnuc, I remember you mentioning this heat issue for #4 earlier - is there anything that can be done about it?

Combination of a pipe to vent in air when moving (green lines) directly over #4, combined with a vent cut into the hood (yellow rectangle)?

Since the exhaust track is internal, doesn't seem like there is a lot that can be done other than trying to cool off the block around #4
