Header/starter q

My starter is getting where it doesn't wanna start when it's been running awhile, I'm thinking it's because of the headers getting it hot, idk. I'm thinking about throwing some header wrap around the starter. The heads are gt40p, any body else had this problem? Whatcha think

Header wrap or a heat shield on the starter may help, but it also may not if the starter windings are already damaged.

Do you already have the smaller mini-starter on it?
They started installing them on 5.0 Mustangs after 1991 if I remember correctly.

How is your tune?
A lean tune will burn hotter causing higher exhaust temperatures.
