    Question Hood mat question

    Hello, seems like ever since I have got my truck each day i am trying to sort out another problem due to the previous owner, well now that hte list is 200 small little things that bother me i have found out that the old owner (im guessing was around 20,) went mudding, but did not clean the truck afterwords, and now, im left with a huge caked on problem of old mud, well my question is when i pop the hood, the mat that is there is like baked with mud every time it gets wet the watter is dirty and brown and never seems to get clean, so what would the out come be if I were to take it off, my father said that I would hear more ticking and noise, well im wondering if anyone has done so? and if you have are there any big diffrences with before the mat was removed and after. I just dont want to take it off then regret it. will it chance the temperature under the hood much?

    Not an expert, but I pulled mine off of my 1994 Silverado.

    I don't hear any engine noise. But I also put on a set of headers, cut the cats, and ran dual exhuast.

    They dump out right behind the cab.

    So no ticking noises, just throaty exhuast....
    Pavement sucks... :grrrrrr:
