Heat soak is a common Chevy problem especially with headers. You can get a variety of after market heat shields and thermo wrap. These generally cost around $30 and are easy to install. Since the solenoid actually a magnet that engages the starter to the flywheel you can't remove it. Fords work differently and I've never seen a ford type starter with a separate relay that is made for Chevrolet.
