    Default White dust in 360 engine bay

    Been getting alot of white powder settling on the engine after use. Spoke to graypaul and they tell me its quite a common thing and come from some of the heat protective wadding in the engine bay, nothing to be concerned about. Anyone else had this problem?

    It makes perfect sense.......apart from the fact that the F-chat discussion is about 355s and Rob's asking about a 360!

    From what I can recall it comes from the exhaust heat shields - nothing you can do about it

    On a 355 it would tend to indicate the headers had blown through & would need fixing pronto before valves start burning. Not sure if the 360 is prone to the same issue - probably worth a good poke around.
