    Hi,

    I was under the bonnet today when i got home from work and noticed that the right hand side of the manifold, near the throttle body was really cold and the opposite side very hot. this was straight after a 30min journey. is it meant to be like this?:unsure:

    Also, I've noticed that when i blip the accelerator from idle to about 2000rpm the exhaust starts fluttering a little when settling back to idle. not sure if it did this before though....

    It shouldn't be very hot. Just about warm to touch.
