Manifold insulators

Does anyone know whether intake manifold insulators are available for the 3.9/4.0 OHC ford 6?

Havent heard of any heat insulators for these motors,
There are two types of manifold gaskets available, one for the EA, which is a thinner one, and the EB's came out with a thicker one.

How would wrapping the manifold with some of that stuff people use on their extractors go? would that reduce heat soak?

its more the fact that the air/fuel gets heated as it passes through the intake. The intake absorbs the head from the head so it would really have to be insulated between the head and intake manifold for any benefit Id say.
How much thicker are the EB gaskets? are they metal etc?
wondering how two of them would go...
