with all the slots, the temp of the bumper itself came down about 120 deg, the exhaust came down about 200 deg, and the oil came down about 40 deg. (after a session of spirited use) - I used a cheapo laser temp gauge from Northern Tool.
that area holds a significant amount of heat in the absence of any ventilation.

I'm of the opinion (I could be wrong) that any kind of wrap or foil will only increase the exhaust temp by keeping all the heat in, and decrease the efficiency of the turbo. - especially if you have no intercooler, like NO RSR.
