Turbo Bag

anyone ever used a "Turbo Bag" or what ive seen them called. its basically a "wrap" for a turbo. always saw them and heard good things in the Subaru world when i had my STI because of quicker spool and cooler under hood temps. any thoughts about this and wrapping the downpipe?

turbo blanket, I have run them in cars in the past.

100% helps with underhood temps.

Wrapping the DP is good, it keeps it hotter. The hotter it is the faster the exhaust gases will flow.

All the turbo blankets I have seen are for the T3/T4 based turbos. Will they fit out Garrett turbo? If not does anybody make a turbo blanket for the Garrett? I would like to run one.

I haven't seen one specifically for the Variable Geometry turbine housing. That doesn't mean you won't find one that works, but the VGT turbine housing is somewhat larger than a lot of T3/T4 housings.
