I just got my MAC installed today (which is very good [thumb] ) but my hood seems to get very hot when I turn off my car. Is that normal??

Yes. My hood always gets hot and I have the stock exhaust manifold with the factory heat shield. So imagine a high flow header with no shielding. If it worries you make your own cover so that your hood doesn't boil and possibly have chipping paint in the future. It gets hot right above the exhaust manifold.
