They are supposed to keep heat in the exhaust housing of turbo. Lower under hood temps and decrease spool up time and lower egts.

Sorry for the typo that was supposed to be decrease spool up time. Had a long week. As far as all the claimes with my current mods it is kind of hard to see any real gains. Egt's at idle went down some. As far as spool up my truck spools up really fast anyways so that is hard to tell.

Turbo blankets are super helpful. We use them in our higher hp cars (supras). They help out quite a bit in lowering under hood temps which in turn help out a bunch of other thing under there. It also supposed to help with spool time. Same goes for wrapping the DP in thermo wrap but it might now be a good idea for the guys that go offroad and see a lot of moisture since it will hold it. Hope that helped a lil, didnt get too technical so a lot of people can get what it does. :-)
