Foil Delete

I know there has to be a write up somewhere on here about Foil delete but I cant find it. So whats involved in the foil delete? I assume its fairly easy.

Thanks

Foil Delete

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

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!
