you wont get more whistle, but you will def hear it whine when you jump on it. you just hear it once it spools, it really whines tho haha, id do it.
If you care about how it looks, then itll take a while, but if you just go at it with a bench grinder itll come off pretty quick.

I used some texacol, wd40, carb cleaner, steel wole, chemdip, just about any chemical i had sitting around in the garage haha.

I took my foil off with Bio diesel. Peeled the bulk off, slathered the BD on, left it for about 45 minutes, came back, wiped it down with a scrubbie sponge, then a towel, and BLING!
