Default Need recommendations for a P-200 FOD screen

Guys,
I have a P-200 (Older version Propane start) that will soon be used in the 1/5 F-16 and need a FOD screen. Back when I bought the turbine from Bob Wilcox, he said, "do not to use a screen" because of the reduced airflow the turbine needs to get to full power. That was 11 years ago and I'm sure there is a solution.

I've checked most of the major Jet dealers and they only seem to have FOD screens for the RX 220....My engine is a 52 pounder, slightly more than the the 220.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Chris
