I recently wired in a new rear fusebox located in the trunk in my 09 challenger srt8 and recently I've been noticing that the plastic top cover of the fuse box gets hot but the fuses get slightly warm and I wanted to know if this is normal for mopar

No, I think not. You have something going on that you don't want going on.

What is the new fuse box wired to?

A fuse box should never get hot. It is a sign there is too much resistance to current flow. Have you calculated the amperage load and matched the components to handle that with a safety margin?

have it thermal scanned, it will tell you where the heat is coming from. otherwise it is just a guessing game and you could try unplugging everything and plugging it back in.

as a electrician thermal scanning is great, leads you to any hot spots imminently
