Back in the day there were two theories, nothing I have seen fully researched. #1: keeping the turbo input hot as possible gives the turbo more efficiency and as a result more boost since it is supposed to be a thermal driven device. #2 keeping the exhaust hot aids flow out of the system and aids sensor function. Insulation on both keeps the engine bay cooler which again, in theory, promotes charge density.
casual notes from the underground:There are some "experts" out there that in reality don't have a clue as to what they are doing.
