Header wrap options or better PS hoses

Hey Guys, Now that I have my headers on my 66 Fairlane with PS there is one header tube that goes right by the PS hoses and I know this isn't good. Is there some sort of header tube sleeve that I can put on it so my PS hoses don't get really hot.....I don't really want that stuff that you have wrap over and over more like a sleeve type.

I was wondering does someone make PS hoses that can handle the heat from headers maybe a high performance hose?

Re: Header wrap options or better PS hoses

Look on summit or Jegs web site they have just the sleeve that you only wrap once then wire tie or is it possible to just reroute the hose away from them with different fittings?

Here is an option from summit

Here is what I was talking about: Thermo-Tec 11600 - Thermo-Tec Clamp-On Pipe Heat Shields - summitracing.com
