    Wrapping the pipes keeps the heat and energy inside the pipe. The faster the exhaust flows the faster the turbo spools. I'm not saying it's suddenly going to spool 1000rpm sooner, but maybe a couple hundred RPM. It's one of the reasons guys wrap hit sides in turbo cars.

    Yes, I'm aware of all that.. It's just so minimal it's just a waste of time in my opinion. I've wrapped headers on my hot rod and ended up taking it off.
