Not surprised.  I used visible heat damage (from structural composite damage to singed paint) to guide my coverage.  There may be more going on than simply proximity of exhaust system parts to cowling.

I guess the 'safer'  but slightly heavier approach would be to cover it all as Tim suggested.

I took a pencil and marked the areas that were fairly close to any exhaust pipe (with the bottom cowl on).  It looks like your area covered is smaller than mine.... just sayin'.

Here's what I did after allowing heat to damage my cowling.  The bad

news is that I had to repair the cowling's inside surface and structure

(scarfing, cloth, honeycomb).  The good news is that I had a real good

indication of where the heat problem was.  I have flown 2 years since

then with no additional damage or concern.    I used red RTV to adhere

the pieces of foil faced insulation - probably the same stuff Tim used

but not sure.
