I'm getting lots of engine heat into the cab of my '23. Anybody tried pedal boots? Anybody tried mounting them under the floor with the just the boots themselves protruding thru the slots and fastened around the pedal shafts?

I have the stock air deflector on my '26. It works pretty well keeping the warm breeze from rolling up from the floor. Still plenty of heat just going through the firewall though.

Will boots be a problem when try you remove the floor boards? I have the medal heat reflector under my floor boards now and it gets in the way.

I use a racing car insulation blanket.. I bought it at a speed shop in my area. It works very well. You just have to make sure it dose not come in contact with your spark plugs as it will ground them out. Its a bit pricey but well worth it. To drown out the silver color of it I laid a thin exercise mat on top of it to hide it. Here in Florida it doesn't take much engine heat to ruin a nice ride. This set up works very well. I might add, I also wrapped my exhaust pipe with heat tape.

Go to a builder's hardware store and buy some aluminium "brush strips" - draft strips for bottoms of doors. They come with brushes in varying lengths from 1/2" to 2" or more. Cut into pieces and screw to underside of floor boards, either side of each pedal, so they meet / mesh around the pedal. Cutting them that short, you may need to glue each section of brush into the alloy mount to stop it sliding out.
Also an asbestos wrap and tin sheild on the exhaust pipe. can't beat good old asbestos !
Similar brush stripping is also used on edges of some truck & trailer wheel arches !
