Removing Lining of Passenger Side Intercooler Pipe and Should I Remove the Hood Liner

Alright, so I'm just doing some minor things to make my engine bay look a little cleaner. I have that crappy looking insulation on the passenger side intercooler pipe, and it is peeling. Looks terrible. How hard would it be to sand off the glue sections? Or would it be too much work, should I just buy a new pipe without the insulation? I plan on painting both intercooler pipes red.

And my headliner has a small amount of coolant on it from when my truck was puking the week before I had my studs put in. It doesn't look that bad, but are there any benefits to keeping the hood liner? I'm sure it looks better without it.

The hood insulation is mainly there to reduce noise. Here's a write up I did with before and after temp results. I averaged a 30* temp drop under the hood after I removed the hood liner.

Don't want to steal the thread but where can I get a exhaust side intercooler tube that has a larger diameter. I have an S&B intake manifold and that came with a bigger intake side tube but not exhaust side. WHere can I just buy an Exhaust side tube?

Do you think after prolonged use with hood insulation gone it will hurt the paint on the hood? Cause mine looks bad and I would take it out but I dont want to have a burnt looking spot in a couple years

I don't think it would hurt the paint, ford stopped putting the hood liners on the trucks sometime in late '04 on up.

Blake I removed mine by hand then took a wire wheel on a grinder to it worked great. Then painted both sides Ford blue has held up pretty good so far.

No pics, the under side of the hood was white like the truck. There was also a dirt outline where the insulation was, but it wiped off clean. I left it off because when my stock dipstick handle fell apart it sprayed alittle oil on the insulation.
