turbo blankets and heat wrap?

I would like to hear some opinions on these. If I were to put heat wrap on my uppipes and downpipe and a turbo blanket on the exhaust housing would it have any effect on spool up?

I'd think little to none. Plus, if you ever had a small leak of any kind from the fuel bowl, HPOP, turbo, etc it could be absorbed by your heat wrap. Just seems like an easy fire hazard for little to no performance (to me at least).

it would all be coated ,except for the turbo blanket, with a high temp silicone paint (ive thought this through but shouldve mentioned the paint) it acts as a sealant to keep chemicals, fluids, water, ect. out of the wrap.
