Question for anyone with TRD (or similar) headers: is there any company out there that makes a starter heat shield for the Tacoma?

My passenger side headers pretty much wrap right around the starter and after only 8K miles with the headers the starter went out. I really DON'T want to take those off again! I guess I should've coated at least those pipes but now I'll do fine with a heat shield. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

You wouldn't want to wrap the headers anyway. It tends to superheat them and make them brittle. Check out jegs.com or summitracing.com. They both carry an array of starter heat shields, many of them being an aluminized wrap. The wraps would be the easiest way. They secure with straps or velcro depending on the brand. Their sheet metal ones are of course for more popular domestic engines, but you could fab one.
