It's like header wrap for the turbine side of your turbo. It's supposed to keep heat out of your engine compartment and more importantly in your turbo. Hotter air moves faster so if you can keep the heat in your turbo it will spool faster.

I've had one laying around for my 6.0 for awhile now.... Not thrilled about fighting the thing on. A few sled pullers will put them on large turbos to help them spool.
