One word of warning - lagging the manifold is all very well, but the exhaust pipe will be very much hotter further down, where it  gets very close to the fibreglass. You might need to put some heat protection along the edge of the tunnel.

You'll probably want to remove the oil separator on the transfer gear casing in order to attach the engine stabiliser and bolt on the clutch slave cylinder.
