your catalytic converter or muffler is restricting the flow of exhaust gas . most likely it's the converter ...PBN

If you just came back from a hard run or a long drive its completely normal.

Take off your lower oil feed line and clean it, and the k03 should never get that red and hot if it has good oil feed. They dont make that much boost.
