Brake pedal orifice hair dryer

I've searched this forum without success on this issue. When I'm driving at speed, there's a blast of air from my brake pedal orifice that is insanely hot! I added a heat shield onto my catalytic converter and used Dynamat on the floor and battery box. Everything has been sealed up but all of the pressure seems to be focused about 90% on the brake pedal orifice and 10% from the clutch orifice. How do I seal these up? Thanks!!

Did you close up the two inch and a half round holes on each side of the pedal box in the engine bay?

How do find the 4 holes. Am I leaning into the engine bay? I can't seem to locate them.

Anyone else know how to locate these holes? Should I be laying down under the truck?

I have the same issue, I'm actually thinking about carving out a hole in my dash a/c unit and putting a hose / cooling blower into the same space, serious case of hot foot in the summer time. depressing to hear that the heat shield and all that other stuff didn't work. yes, let me know if you find the solution to this. it's nice in the wintertime though, not so much now.

This can't be by design. We must be missing some sort of plug or gasket. The volume of heat coming through is substantial.

You can also just slap a couple pieces of dynamat/b-quiet over the sides of the pedal box. It's generally helpful for when you want to get a good seal over a hole. Just clean off the grease first and it sticks like mad.

The design of the plug dictates that it be inserted from the outside.

It cannot be inserted from the inside (unless you are capable of some serious magic.)

Gorilla tape. Two short squares should do.

This method can be done from inside the footwell by reaching into break orifice?

I think only a trained spider monkey will have hands small enough to reach up inside the brake pedal box from inside the cab. You'll have to attack this from the engine compartment.

Open the hood and at the drivers side up by the bulkhead you will see the peddle box and the hole is about 1.5 inch in diameter. One on each side of the box. You can get the plugs or just cover with tape or dynamat.
