These questions will keep coming until DanH does a HowTo: for the firewall insulation method that he approves of

I had asked the same thing. His response was to use the Stainless Steel Shim Stock from McMaster - http://www.mcmaster.com/#stainless-s...-stock/=dor95b

For firewall insulation on the engine side, Firewall 2000 looks to be equivalent? Ceramic blanket with SS foil on the heat side?
In an earlier thread, Dan mentioned that he hadn't tested Firewall 2000. Is there any reason to think this would be an unsafe product to use (attached with SS blind rivets) on the engine side of the firewall?

I didn't bother testing it because the specs say it is rated at 1000F, not 2000F. Doesn't make it unsafe on the engine side, but it doesn't make it optimum either.

Long term add-on.....

One year ago I submerged samples of cured CS-1900 and cured 3M FireBarrier 2000+ in a jar of motor oil. After all, aircraft engine compartments do tend to be oily.

After a year I find very little physical difference between the oiled samples and dry control samples. Hardness, toughness, etc all seem to be unaffected.
