Alot of truck pullers go with the turbo blankets and hot-side coating/wrappings due to insane temps for a relatively short time.

I knew one guy that had a "mild" built pulling truck. He had a huge ice chest/toolbox that he'd fill with ice water for his air-water intercooler. It would be all melted by the time he was done with his pull...
If you're doing something like drag racing where where the car is only running for a short period of time then I could see it helping a bit but for my personal application it would be pointless.
