Duratec turbo heat shield

What are people with turbo duratecs using for a heat shield to prevent stuff from melting or throwing too much heat off the manifold and turbine housing as it is really close to the firewall and right under the vapor management valve?? i wrapped my fuel and vacum lines, and heater hoses in the metal heat shield tubing and used a turbo blanket to go over my manifold (it acutally works pretty good) because i couldnt get it to fit on my turbo correctly. im just looking for other options that look good and not hacked or rigged up lol. i saw a nice metal one that bolted to the stock heatshield location in a pic but have not been able to find one for sale. as for my downpipe i decided not to wrap it the fs 3in pipe has a mean bend in it and the wrap got in the way of the bolts. Thanks.

Moved to "General Forced Induction". A turbo blanket would do wonders for you. Just Google it to find one.

I used the stock shield, slightly hacked up and a turbo blanket on the turbo itself. I'm not sure if that would work for your particular setup since mine is custom.
