Nice work!

I wouldn't worry about cracking; for one the temp differential isn't that great and for another cracking comes from a big thermal shock of the sort when cold water hits a very hot part- it doesn't seem to work that way the other way around (hot water on cold part).

Since you have the room I'd suggest more blanketing of the engine compartment. That's what I've done to good effect.
