I don't have a 7.3L but I have seen a thread on this before and am curious myself, so I will bump it for you.

I did this to my 7.3 when i had it. You do have to remove everything from that side.Took about three hours , the foil comes off easily it just hard to get all the glue off but the truck sounded great

You won't catch me doing it -- but lots of people love it because it allows more whistle...And is MUCH easier so I've read to take the pipe out and clean it.

If anything, I think it looks better without the foil on the tube.
