OK, so I took the Charger to work the other day to show some of my co-workers the K&N Air Intake that I installed. By the time I got around to showing them it was close to 4 1/2 hours after the car had been shut off. When I opened the hood and went to remove the engine cover I noticed that it was warm to the touch. I thought to myself WOW why is it still so warm.

I understand that the HEMI design allows for the least amount of heat loss so that we can have that high HP, but is this normal. Should I be concerned or am I just being a first time HEMI parent.

When you say it was still "warm", just how warm was it? I know my truck (2001 Ram / 5.9L 360) stays warm (about 90-110°) for about 3 1/2 to 4 hours and has always done so.

Once the vehicle is parked, there is no moving air to cool the vast amount of hot metal under the hood in a relatively confined area (best answer I can think of).
