Its really only to be an ascetic addition to your engine compartment and to make the whistle from your turbo more pronounced!

I could tell a difference. Normal cruising its pretty much the same. Once you hit about 12 pounds of boost is when it starts getting noticable.

I noticed a good difference in whistle. As for it cleaning up the engine compartment, i lost my patience cleaning the insulation off so i just took my angle grinder to it. 10 minutes and it was off, just has a rough look to it now...

Early 99s didn't have the foil. Though somehow the early 99 tubes that Nick bought had foil on the hot side.
