    The insulation as mentioned reduces noise AND doubles as a heat shield underneath the carb.
    Even if you block the exhaust crossover,I would still wrap household insulation on tinfoil and put on top of the turkey pan.
    I also paonted the non-sealing surfaces engine color .
    FWIW,this is under my Edelbrock Performer intake.Note the crossover has been blocked and I use "The Right Stuff" by Permatex.

    Got the valley pan in with the heat riser block off.Want to bad of a job. Trying to get all the bolts back in for the intake took some doing. I am sure it was my technique or lack thereof and the blazing heat! Went for a 25min cruise and no leaks..... hope it helps.
