Default Question on what to use for under hood heat areas

what would you use say for a car part that is near a carb, that would be exposed to heat from the motor and carb.

There are foil insulating mats. makes aerogel blankets also.
If you are asking more about resins for composite parts, then you are looking into high-end engineering plastics like Nylon 12, Peek, Pekk, Pei, PPS, et al. There are several epoxies that take this heat, but not sure which ones off hand, except stuff from Endurance Technologies. BMI's and Phenolics will as well. Not sure if Cynate ester resins will withstand the high service temps?
I want my last words to be:
"Hey, this is fun!"
