Removing hood liner

I might be removing my hood liner, main reason is bcs it's kinda saggy and ugly now, not black anymore....

Any cons to doing that? I hear it makes the engine sound louder when the hood's closed since there isn't that thick layer anymore.

And also, what does our hood look like without it?

yes, it is basically just insulation, so the engine will sound louder but i doubt it will make that big of a difference, just if you are removing it be careful of the light bulb and the windshield washer jets


what does it look like without it? well you cant see it unless its open

I'll probably do it, I haven't really read anything bad on it and I have searched 3 forums so far...

I'll make before and after vids of the engine sound for you guys

it serves 2 purposes: One keeps the engine heat from traveling up into the base coat of the paint. And two in the event of an engine fire, the clips are meant to burn and break thus releasing the insulation on top of the fire. I wouldn't remove it.

hmm my car sounds louder than that, maybe it's just me. I can't rev up my car much tho because neighbors are gay, and I can't drive my car in the garage right now.

Sounds like you can hear the valves better.. definetly better sound up top, but i wouldnt have taken it off.. its there to protect the paint from the heat of teh engine.

Well if it hurts the hood, that's a pretty good reason to go CF.

Kinda like when that mailbox jumped out in front of me and broke one mirror. I could have just replaced the mounting bracket, but I seized the opportunity and used it as an excuse to get m3 mirrors. hehe

Did you read my mind??? The paint on my hood is already F-ed up, it's not really shinney, kinda dull, weird thing is that ONLY the hood is like that...

And I completely agree... something being F-ed is the best reason to upgrade, reason why am doing new SS brake lines

But Yeah, plans for an MF Shaw hood in the future are made

And Yes I kept the lining, matter of fact I Keep ALL My OEM parts.
