foil is an insulation, underhood heat is likely heating air as it passes from intercooler to turbo... I wouldn't think it would be enough to notice, but if you're watching gauges like a hawk now, you might have just hightend your awareness more than before... however, I have to agree, since I removed the foil on my yellow truck last year, it also seems to take forever to get down to 300-350 on my EGT's before I shut it off...
