How about a "heat shield" - a piece of sheet metal attached to
the underside of the floor with screws and spacers so that there
is a gap between the shield and the floorboards?
Also, John Fagerlund wrote of header wrap. This has been used
in many racing applications. Recently, there was a thread on the
autocross list about it. Seems that many headers can not withstand
the increased heat caused by the wrap and "disintegrate". It works
much better if you have one of the newer ceramic-coated headers.
So, I guess this is sort of a "buyer beware" situation.
