looks a little cleaner, and the whistle is louder under the hood. and it gives us greasemonkeys something to do when we're bored and broke.

the foil was installed by Ford to dampen turbo whistle. Take it off, and BAM! coupla extra Dbs of whistle, which is good for at least 2hp. Also, deleting the foil wrap and cleaning the tube real well takes at least 8 to 10oz. Off the weight of the vehicle, resulting in another .000048hp gain! :hehe:

Seriously, deleting the foil merely makes the engine bay look a good deal "Cleaner", And does make the turbo louder, but not much if you still have your hood insulation intact.
