I think that the back of my transmission tunnel gets pretty warm, and inside the oddments compartment. But I have never felt the shift lever warm. Just as a data point. I was at the track all weekend and did not notice the shifter being warm, and it was pretty chilly out. Just a data point. Probably normal. Where the shifter cables pass through is an opening through the rear firewall, that is mostly blocked by rubber sleeves covering the shift cables and one other cable I think that goes through there. Then there is a pretty heavy piece of foam that lays over that and then the carpet. Maybe there is a small gap between the shift cables that is letting warm air through?
