Right where it's always been in the 7.3 Tech Files at the top of the main forum page.

It's a real easy mod. Just find the pipe with the foil on it. peel it off. will have yo scrub to get all glue and residue off.

No, you won't have to worry about any temperature increases or decreases. The foil is only there to keep the insulation around the pipe for noise dampening. Ford didn't want customers complaining about the turbo spooling sound (can you actually believe SOME people didn't want to hear this!!! ), so they wrapped the intercooler pipe with insulation.

Not a problem. Just be sure to wear gloves of some kind, and if you don't wear gloves... be careful.... The foil can be a biotch to get off and will likely scrape the **** out of your hands. It takes a while to get it all nice and smooth too. Took me about 2 hours to clean it all up. I'd say overall, it's about a 3 hour job. Have fun!
