turbo blanket?

Found that there's a turbo blanket for the 6L. Do you guys think that it'll help with anything... spooolup and keeping under hood temps down or anything else good?

I think it'll be good at holding moisture to the cast iron and rust the hell out of the housing unless it is ceramic coated. I'll just use my experience with wrapped up/Y-pipes. I wrapped those and didn't notice any difference. I do think that it will possibly help with under hood temps. However though, like I said, I would do it in conjuction with a ceramic coated housing.

I would ceramic coat your up-pipes and wrap them with 2000 degree heat wrap.... I noticed a huge difference in temps under the hood. Well worth it, glad I did it.

How well did it fit around the housing? Where'd you get yours

It fit around it good was a pain I the *** getting it on but works great and has helped keep some heat down in my engine bay. I don't remember exactly who I purchased it from but it was a thread on this site that I got the info from.
