PTP talks about performance, not longevity. Miles are not listed, years means nothing. It's what happens after you turn the engine off and the heat has nowhere to go that is of concern to street cars. Absolutley the oil will be more hot for a longer period of time than with no blanket (once the engine is off), if not then the blanket doesn't work. Heat is 1/2 of the equasion for turbo power so yes a blanket will improve performance. Heat is also the enemy of oil and metal so there is your compromise. If you don't drive your car a lot or don't mind a shorter turbo life then this is not a problem.
Yes a turbo oiler/timer will greatly help shed the heat soak once the engine is off.
