If it is just to mount the motor, 3mm aluminium sheet would be easy to cut and bend with hand tools and easily cope with the temperature.

Bend up a 'U' bracket drilled with mounting holes for the motor or fold up a box. As a tip, drill the corners of the box with a 3mm drill before cutting out to give a clean corner.

Metal, some plastics, wood can handle that temp. It's not really that high.

If it's just a box to hold a motor, then plastic should be fine.

What is a motorbox, in this context ? Is it just a box for a motor ?
