Some food for thought:

Been kicking around addressing heat issues with the turbo and how to
cut down on radiant heat transfer. I think the Zork helps vs an entire
exhaust system radiating heat but it is still going to get plenty hot.

I found a pic. I had saved from Chris at TK. Porsche factory motor
with a small wrap around heat shield behind the turbo. From what I
have read some say it will cut the heat transfer from the turbo by 50%.

Dug some scrap out and made one for the Sled. Mounted it using the
back two turbo mounting bolts and formed it by wrapping it around
an empty oxygen tank. Worked pretty slick.

I went on line and found some 2000* heat sheet to line the inside of
rear bumper with. Between the wrap and the louvers in the bumper
that should protect the bumper and get rid of a lot of that heat.
