any opinion on whats the best product for engine insulation from this company?
The only ones you could use are the Radiant Shield and Firewall Ceramic. The others are only rated to 250F, which is too close to engine running temperature. I expect the Radiant Shield won't do much; you are looking for resistive insulation rather than reflective. That only leaves the Firewall Ceramic, which is rated to 400F.

Just FYI, I got a mat of mineral wool Cerablanket off Amazon rated to 2000F for a third of the price. If such things matter to you.
