can i take off the black insulation thats under the hood? friends told me not to because it keeps the hood cool from the heat of the engine, and if i take it off it will just ruin the pain on the hood. is this true?
i took mine off so i could hear my turbo and my intake more. it's definately louder. i'm not too worried about the paint peeling, my car is black and i live in Florida, i just don't think the engine makes the hood any hotter than the sun. It looks better to IMO.
