It makes it look better and gives you a little more whistle.

If you are bored/drunk and need an easy mod to do and/or you want to hear that whistle all day while you are on a road trip on cruise control at 75mph, do it. I did it and it is kinda cool; it does free up some room to work in there and looks a whole lot better in there as well.

just did mine tonight. take some klein hand cutter to help pull off the main foil. then spray everything down with some aircraft stripper you can get from walmart. let it sit for 10-20 min, and take a razor to what is left. once I got most of it scraped up I took some sand paper and water to get all the goo off. Looks so much better, can't wait to drive it tomm to see if I hear a diff.
