It's for sound insulation, not heat.

I took mine off to try to fix the cheesey hoodscoop that is sticking up on the 2 rear corners! I got the hood cover off with the Fork - and it is staying off now.

No solution on the hood scoop yet though! I am about ready to glue it!

For those curious how it looks like without the insulator..

Before:


After:



Here's my friend's GT, sans the insulator. He's had it like this for months (daily driver) with no effects from the heat.



Even the Saleen/PJ doesn't come with a hood liner.

interesting. i like the looks of the underside of the hood better. i'm also wondering about the sound increase. i think i might do it as well.
