I have never heard of such a thing. Do you mean a pre filter cover that goes over your air filter like the ones made by Outerwears?

its a heat shield blanket that covers the turbo on the exhaust side. The idea is it increases the internal temp of the exhaust gas so it doesnt shrink as it cools and slow down. So it gives you more velocity to spin the turbo, plus keeps the under hood temps lower.In acuality I doubt it does crap for us street guys and does a very small part to the racers, but racers dont care, any gain for them is a plus.The wrap might lower the noise of the turbo a bit also.

The whistle you hear is from the intake and exhaust piping, not the casing, so sound deadening would be minimal. If you can get one cheap or simply want to clean up your engine bay, go for it. Its not a dramatic difference, but it can help in the cold and with extended idling. You may end up making ~1lb extra boost. Now, if you had a large turbo, it would reduce lag significantly, but for stock, it will only do so slightly.
