Exhaust heat shield

I'm trying to find a new heat shield for the exhaust manifold on my engine. It's a 5.2L and mine has melted (long story) and I don't know what the searchable part name would be. Any ideas? Trying to go through napa because I get a discount through my shop.

Is there even a heat shield on the exhaust manifold stock?

I've always read that people just wrap theirs in some flame retardant insulation. Mine is totally bare

Mine has the mounting for it, and it's been there since I got the car, looks like it was molded for it. Little too sophisticated for a home job.

On my turbo cars and my Jeep, I bought a sheild that basically heavy foil with cermic insulation inside.

they come in various rectangular shapes. Got mine from a local hot rod shop.
You can bend or shape it and use stainless zipties.
I like this method because some people fear that wrapping headers will crack them....it happened on my 96XJ.

looks like this

Plan on using those to shield the motor mount when I put on the header so it won't cook them out.
