Mind I ask the reason for wanting one? I think they're kind of a gimmick and I don't think there is truly any value... At least not enough to justify the purchase. Personally, I want the heat from my turbo to escape, rather be contained for minimal gain of energy exchange.

Well I want the heat to escape as well, but I want it to escape out the tail pipe after Ive used it and not just under the hood to heat up the motor.
But Im kinda sceptical about this myself so that why I ask if any bodys tryed one and what was their thoughts. I know race crews run these alot

Nature of the beast, diesels run hotter. There is plenty of heat around that turbo. Hell, it butts right up to your firewall which is wrapped in heat shield, which bounces off and hits your turbo. Which is why I said the gains would be minimal at best. They hold heat after you shutdown too. I'd just assume run without one and have less idle down time.

I'd like one to help control engine compartment heat but only see them for T3/T4 based turbos.

Im not looking for any "gains" per say. Im looking more into keeping temps down under the hood. You are right when you say there is plenty of heat around that turbo,and that the heat bounces off the heat sheild and hits your turbo so why not contain as much heat as possible and force it out the tail pipe instead of allowing it to float around and cook the engine? That poor little FICM is sweatin in there.

A turbo is driven by heat. The more heat you can keep in the exhaust housing the quicker it will spool and less wasted energy. There will be no difference in cool down time.

Air and exhaust gasses create that heat. Of which, they're all internal. So again, what is wrapping your turbo going to do? If you want faster spool times, get more air and more fuel. I can't see them minimizing heat that much in the engine compartment. But, I know these are used on drag cars and heavy diesel applications. BUT, heavy diesels are open compartment and drag cars usually don't have an insulated engine bay - or the turbo receives too much air from air dams.
