Default Heat Rap vs Heat Shield

I have a larger turbo on my car and have noticed it is heat soaking severly. What performs better the turbo blankets(heat rap) or a heat shield like one from Cusco or Cobb? Also does anyone know how well heat rap works on headers vs coating them? Does rapping the headers and turbo help increase spool up?

I'm a fan of redundency. Have you're turbo and headers sent out for coating, then put a heat shield or chimney around the turbo until you go w/ a FMIC, and wrap the headers. If money is any issue (as it usually is for most) wrapping both is the best bang for your buck.
