I concur with JFairman on this.
The volume of air from this system wouldn't be enough to make a noticeable difference. If you could burn some fuel and air during this period, the expanding gases would indeed drive the turbo.
That's what the factory did on the 965 LM car to keep the turbo spolled up. It wasn't incorporated into the road cars because of the negative impact on fuel consumption.
As for the heat killing headers, I would bet the Suburu headers were made from Inconel (as are a lot of high end racing headers are), which is a nickel superalloy which will withstand a lot of heat.
