While trying to trace an oil leak on my V8 FSI motor, I noticed two sets of wires/tubes (not sure what they are) running under the intake manifold and rubbing on the top of the engine. (what would be the lifter valley in an pushrod V8)

None of them were worn though, but I figured I should prevent any further wear.

Corrugated wiring loom to the rescue!!!! You only need a few inches of it, but hopefully it will prevent a (presumably) expensive repair.

Pictures show it best:
