Default Heat shield for header, downpipe?

Hey guys I got an FM2 and gt2560r, and I was wondering if I should wrap or shroud the header and downpipe on my setup? I'm only wondering because my break booster and heater core hoses are getting hot.

Just wondering if it's even worth it..?

Wrap the brake master reservoir and wrap your heater lines in reflective heat wrap.

This stuff easily obtained? I've got a few shops by me I assume it is, how about the relative pricing, or any particular type I should look for? The stuff that comes with the FM kits seems to do OK for a while, but it's not holding up over time it seems (getting dark and peeling).
