Is the hood insulation needed with an open TA hood scope that allows air to the engine? I would hate to ruin the paint job later on down the road.

I would do something like this to the pad. I've seen many people run without the pad with no problems, but it keeps the heat from your outer hood, and it's also a fire retardant in case you ever should be so unfortunate.

Ran with no hood liner for over 4 years, no problems. And that's with matte black on the hood

Without the Vent system it's doable with minor modifications.

With the vent system you would have to remove a lot more to allow the system the ability to attach to the hood. It didn't look like it would be worth it when I installed my hood w/vent so I left it off.
