    i have a 88 crx dx and the rear is gutted. right where the fuel pump is that spot gets real hot . it burns my hand if i touch it and if the passenger seat is all the way back it starts to thin the material on the back of the seat and will start to melt it . my question is this a problem or am i just noticing it because the storage box is out of the car?

    there is no way that is normal. i have an 89 crx dx and there are no hotpsots back there on mine. i would suspect that heat is somehow coming from your exhaust. maybe there is a heatshield missing that goes between the car and the cat.

    the heat shield wouldn't really effect it IMHO, and the term hot tank is referred to a process why which dipping a bottomend into a almost chemical tank that cleans your bottom end out of impureities.
