other then that, yes it looks ****ing bad ass and something that i have wanted to do for a while
I've heard those stories as well....there are ZERO bad sides to wrapping your turbo. ZERO. NONE. All lies parroted by ignorant people.

i feel that this is a much better option than wrapping a downpipe because the turbo is mostly under the tmic and is cast so it holds more heat. the stainless downpipes wont and thats were it can dissipate more heat then! good writeup though. i did this first and it worked great for me.
Those thick blankets are nice....the only problem is they are expensive as crap. Wrapping your turbo with the Thermotec product offers the same "turbo hand holding benefits" as I often touch it to prove my point to locals.
