Is there some kind of heat shield wrap I can get?

Its real close to the engine and real hot too.

You can get this stuff at parts express. Works pretty good, and it comes in assorted sizes :)

I think it may be too small.


Would that completely protect the wires though, something like that?

I used heater hose from an autoparts store to protect the wire in my car and my buddies truck. Figure it's designed to carry hot fluids/etc under the hood of a car, so it's strong, weather/abuse resistant and has a good heat tolerance.

I think Im gonna try that stuff ramos said, than either use squeaks on top of that, or wrap it with heat shielding wrap.

This is nice. I use it on some of my wiring in the engine compartment. Do a search on "Heat Sheath".

Some smaller sized header wrap looks cool too.
