No fire yet.

And the motor was over heating this weekend so I can't imagine it getting any hotter than it did this weekend. AKA no fire.

Seems I have more room between my pipes and the body than you. What worked well for me were 2 sheets of .040 aluminum 3003 with some high temp fiberglass 1" insulation compressed to about 1/4" between them. I pop riveted sections together, bent them to fit and held in place with sheet metal screws. Intended as a quick fix for the extreme foot melting heat the dual down pipes and cat put out under my drivers side, I'm probably leaving them because they work so good.

What, you don't believe? Yup, it happened. But it takes an awesome motor to achieve this 0.5635%-er status.

Hmm.. I missed this first time around. This might be a good heat insulator for our intake.
