Felt

Has anyone taken off the felt on their heads? It looks awkward as hell being there since I don't run the car with the cover on. Is there an easy way to take it off?

I took mine off, I did it when I took off my valve covers to paint them, it isn't to bad. You will prob just have to remove the intake manifold and pull off the metal/rubber things.

well... i went out to the car today and popped the hood. while looking at the felt i really really didnt feel like unbolting my manifold for some felt, plus i didnt want to mess with my seal for my black iceolater. soooo i grabbed a razor knife and a pair of needle nose pliers for the tough spots. its all off and took about 10 mins.. glad i didnt mess with unbolting when it was so easy to just pull off. looks so much better! i was going to paint them but i am really digging the stock look of it. after seeing that felt there for so long the stock black looks amazing ha

That's pretty much what I did too, came out good for me too and was super easy

I've read that its only there to help with noise reduction. Let us know if you hear any real noise difference. If not, I may try this too.

I think the LLT engine with a painted or polished intake and painted covers looks awesome!

That is exactly what I was planing to do if this crazy cold weather ever breaks. Glad to know it was not that hard. I also did not want to mess with the manifold/iceolator. And Yeah, let us know if you hear any difference. I can't imagine that it would bother me though. I want to be able to hear my engine!

yea ruby its really no big deal. i am pretty much maxed on bolt-on's.. ipf/bbk longtubes, high flow cats etc etc. and there is no noticeable noise that would be bothersome. i put my head close to see if anything seemed different.. nope the clicking is still the same annoying loudness. honestly the felt is thin and if it did block the engine noise a tad i woudnt even noticed with my setup. it just looked nasty with dust and such on it and had to go.

10 mins and its gone.. best thing i did to my car this week

Think i'm gonna hafta do this when it warms up. To damn cold up here in the northeast to bother spending 10 mins outside for something that can wait til it's warmer.

sappy, Any chance you can post a picture of your engine with the felt removed.

Sometimes with Androids you have to go into the settings once it is plugged and select USB mode, although I don't have to do that with mine...it does act a bit differently if I do do that though.
