I would use tin to isolate your exhaust muffler from your engine bay. When you are sitting still, the heat of the muffler is rising right into it.

On a type 1 the piece of tin you are missing is called a breastplate, for yours it will likely be a fabrication.

Thanks for the insight! Would you use Tin, or blanket to isolate turbo heat, or just leave it alone?
I am not a fan of blankets or wraps, I use tin but that is just a personal preference so dont take that as gospel.

On your application, it may be unrealistic to try to modify a tin shroud so you may have to resort to a blanket.
