Two things:
  1. Helps keep the heat in the exhaust system ... which in turn maintains overall exhaust energy ... which is used to spool the turbo.
  2. Helps protects the rest of your engine bay from the heat of your exhaust system.

NB: Please consider posting any help requests in a new thread instead of asking me for help privately. About 99.9+% of the time, private help requests end up covering great information that could be very valuable to other forum members. If you have a good reason for needing the help request to be private, I'll consider it. If not, then why not give everyone else the opportunity to pitch in too, and/or learn from the information? Remember, there's no such thing as a dumb question. We're all here to help within this family of Supra owners.

It also makes the engine bay more appealling to the eye. There's nothing I hate more than a rusty uncoated exhaust housing...
