Ok, we'll say this like a disclaimer... removing the insulation will highly increase the chances that your hood paint will go to ****.

Jut saying maybe in some cases the paint will go bad,not in all cases. Jut like almost everyone condemns the 0331 head to failure when there are many cases where its not a problem. Its like life one big crap shoot.
