Where is thermal-engine.conf on Pixel 2? Need to hack thermal throttling.

I am new to XDA. Please advise if I have posted poorly.

I am a software engineer and now Android hacker. I am attempting to use Pixel 2 phones as streaming cameras. Everything works awesome until I turn on compression and then I get throttled down due to breaking 40c on the skin temperature. This is insane and I need to hack the phones to get that bumped up.

I found a thread on how to do this for Nexus 5x. I was disappointed when the same instructions don't apply for Pixel 2 as I see no thermal-engine.conf. And when searching extensively, I have found no guidance on hacking Pixel 2 thermal throttling. I did move my thermal-engine.conf from my 5x to one of the pixel 2s. But that was a hope and a prayer and it did nothing. Which is better than bricking....but..I really need to work around this limitation

Any help would be much appreciated. I have 3 rooted Pixel 2s and before I start cutting them apart and bonding copper to the heat shields, I am looking for a software hack approach.
