Exclamation WTF is this stuff in my engine valley

I was washing under the hood of my truck today, and i see some grimy stuff by the HPOP and fuel bowl. I reached down and theres big chunks of padding there.

It seems like hood liner material and I so far have removed about a handfull of it. Its all shredded up and grimy. I have never seen this before, is it like a heat shield or protector for the Hpop?

Could it be some of your hood or fire wall insulation that got chewed up and built into a nest, then soaked with oil? Thats typically where I find pack rats to be setting up shop.

Its probably a mixture of hood insulation and the inner fender garbage as well along with anything else that would stick to oil. It gets real messy down there

I pulled the fuel bowl and took a bunch of stuff out. there was a couple wires that were chewed up pretty bad so I guess there was a mouse in there at some point.

Oh well, I painted the fuel bowl an regulator flat black while it was out lol, looks pretty cool
