I did the foil delete but don't believe I would remove hood insulation b/c it helps to keep the engine heat off the hood and would protect the hood if the Serpentine belt was to break IMO

yea, ive never heard of anyone taking off the hood insulation. Might be confused with the foil delete mod, if you consider that a mod I guess

interesting...i would like to add MORE to my hood. I

have an 03, with 4" turbo back (no cat, no muffler) and its frickin loud. Entertaining, but irritating at times too. I was thinking about getting a stock downpipe to kill some of the noise. Would be easier to add more hood insul, but I dont think there is room..

I would bet money that someone on here say with an 06 or so would love to trade turbos with you. You would both be happy with that deal.

People spend a lot of money trying to make their truck sound like an 03 6.0...
