your engine operating temperature is well beyond what we would consider hot. its totally normal for metal stuff in the engine bay to absorb this. yesterday I let my SC idle for a few minutes while I put a lift column in place and by the time I got it up in the air the BMC was too hot to touch.

This is normal. This is also why many people run hoods with venting.

Your stock hood acts like the door to an oven. Unless your car is overheating this isn't a problem.
