Tymar Intake and Hood

Hey guys,

Just did the Tymar Intake and got a perhaps dumb question.

Can the filter element touch the hood?

Stuck in Omaha for dinner so any quick responses would be great before I hit the road. Thanks.

-AJ

Mine does. Someone suggested on here today to cut the hood insulation back to "open it up".

Will cutting the hood insulation back hurt anything? I can think of why it would.

I've never heard where it would hurt anything. I think it was there for sound attenuation like was said above. I have actually read where removing it may keep the engine compartment cooler. I've always wondered if removing it would allow heat to get to the hood paint?

I wouldn't worry about it on your drive home today. You'll be getting more air than the stock box got you.

No, take the insulation out...

I just did a 6.0 turbo this weekend and the truck is an 07 bought new and it didn't come with insulation from the factory

The paint will be fine.

Only issue is if you throw an I/C boot it COULD dent the hood.
