Be sure to check the engine top cowling insulation on pre-flight. Mine came loose on leading edge, became presurized in flight and was forced the blanket down on top of engine - causing a higher than normal engine temp. Fix was to reseal the blanket and put a small bead of RTV silicone on the leading edge of insulation. CC says they have fixed this on production line going forward by using a more sticky glue. My SN is #16. Fix is working fine now.
