The idea of the turbocharger is to capture waste heat to run the compressor, so insulating the turbo helps it channel the heat into doing some useful work instead of escaping into the engine compartment. The air flow through the compressor side is plenty to keep the temps in safe limits. I've never heard of anyone damaging a turbo with excess heat trapped by a turbo blanket. If anyone has, please share so I'll know to pull my blanket off...

As for what the benefits are, my butt dyno hasn't noticed any difference, but I like to know it's there, doing its thing.
