Speaking of cabin heat in general, one can greatly reduce said heat with
that mylar-backed bubble insulation available at your larger local
hardware venue. (About $20 for a very large roll; normally a home
application.)  I installed it in the underside of my replacement tunnel,
but I didn't get great results until I also put it on top of the tunnel
and underneath the carpeting.  It's true -- it makes a helluva
difference, particularly for GT6'ers, who typically fry.  And it takes
all of about 20 minutes to install -- you don't even need to unbolt the
center dash support ...
