During my endless hours at anchor doing research and being cheap, I found this stuff. I was thinking of using it as an exhaust wrap/insulator from turbo to mixer. There's a place where the exhaust is going to be pretty close to the fiberglass fuel tanks, the last thing I want is to melt one! Anybody have any ideas other than having custom blankets made? (already looked into that would cost about 4 times as much) I found this stuff, at about 140$ for a 18"x5' piece. What do the pro's think?

Why don't you buy one of their ready-made turbo heat shields? They offer 4-5 different sizes. Then finish off with narrow wrapping tape to the mixer. A sheet aluminum shield w/ air gap behind, shielding your tank (like a wood stove installation) will give you piece of mind too.
