Ya basically, actually its hvac vent insulation from lowes! 馃槄
Its a sticky backed foam padding with the foil on other side. I just covered the single layer steel panels & left the reinforcement exposed. Now the fan blows nicely over the top of the motor

Is the primary function noise suppression or protection of the metalwork from heat after the car stops? We 9000 owners know what can happen to the front of the valve cover above the turbocharger. But there are painted areas in the engine bay which don't seem to suffer, although the heat would primarily convect rather than radiate. I've often thought of the adhesive foam/foil method for the 9-5 whose lining is sagging (rather keep the 9000 original as possible).
I did mine because i was tired of that saggy blanket hanging down on top of the motor blocking off airflow.
