Heat under dash

I want to know if anybody has done something about the heat coming from under the dash. I know that buying the heat extractor hood will fix it but for $600 for a new hood is out of the question.

I'm in the same boat. I've been putting up with it for a while, but when I start using AC more often in the summer it causes condensation underneath my dash and i dint want it to mess up any electronics under there or anything. I want to get hood louvers put into my stock hood, not just cuz I would like how it looked but I think it might help with my problem. Anyone else done this before?

I do too, I just haven't had the time to figure out exactly what it is that's causing it. Or knowing what I need to do to fix it

Well along with my high engine heat, I noticed an area where there was more heat than everywhere else. There also a lot of dirt and grime in this one area so I cleaned it up really good with degreaser and there was a slightly noticeable difference. I did it to my whole engine and made it pretty much spotless. The result was a slight difference but it's not quite as cool as I want it. So I'd recommend trying it your engine if you haven't already, it helps.

I just got a 14 GT and I swear it's warm on the drivers side.

No heat under my dash. Only heat coming through the rubber shroud of the hand brake.

I'm thinking about getting those hood vents from AM. I've noticed them being put in the new stangs as a standard install.
