      Keeps heat in the exhaust tract and out of the engine bay, theoretically leading to better spool times and increased efficiency. Do it.

      It really depends on type of manifold and turbo housing. Itf it's standard steel then you should get coating, if it's stainless then it serves no purpose cause stainless is very good at keeping heat in
