Hey Cole is your heat shield black or shiny I can't tell, if it is black make it shiny because the reflective surface also cut down on the heat transfer by reflecting radiant heat away from the shield it might also help to make it v shaped or angle it to reflect the heat wave away from the turbo as well to reduce heat soak from reflecting the heat right back at the turbo. May not work but sounds like it might in theory.
