Been thinking about removing it for quite some time. Would like to see the look of the hood (underside) beforehand. THANKS

Let me/us know if you notice a difference in engine noise or paint issues,so on. People say they notice no change on other forums.

Will do, but since I have the V6, it doesn't make that much noise at all... lol.

Mines been off for a few months paints fine but yeah the engine noise is more pronounced and I plan to get a new one to put back in. You can REALLY hear the lifters, injectors, and headers with it gone!

Mine's off too. I was happy to find out mine was fully painted. It's dull, no clear coat, but it's painted. Some are not, though, so be prepared

It's a little louder, but with long tubes and a Maggie, it was loud already.

The paint issue is why I have not taken mine off yet. My inner fender was not painted completely behind the stock airbox. Not a big deal until I switched to the Vararam. Now I have a decent sized unpainted area under my hood. I can just imagine how much of my hood is unpainted.
