HEAR THAT ENGINE ROOOOAAAARRRR!!! check it out.

Fellas, I was just wondering. Is it alright to remove the sound insulator that is under the MKIV hood, just to hear the engine roaring and the turbo weezing. Or will removing it pose threats like rain water leaking inside or overheating or maybe even making the hood squeak?
Please only post if you really know. (Don't want to take it off and damage the car) Thanks...

If your reffering to the sponge material under the hood of course you can remove it, not all mk4's even come with it, my 2.0 (now a vr6) didn't have it.

I have a VR6 turbo.. and i took that thing right off.
I will be getting a double sided carbon hood soon, and that wont have it either..
You should take it off.. it looks really nice too, when its all cleaned up!
