Cole all you need to do is get some stainless steel and fab up a heat shield around the hot side to reflect that heat away from the motor and prevent the hot air from rising I used to have to replace my starter on the blazer (SBC 350) about every 2 years because of heat issues that would make it fail and I made a heat shield and haven't replaced another one since. Y ou can even keep it far enough away that you don't put premature wear on the turbo by locking the heat in like a blanket would do. Good luck!
