Removing the plates dont hurt anything but I suggest you either leave the plate over the battery or use spacers on it. The battery doesnt like water that much. Your engine will definitely run slightly cooler with the plates off. I put mine on during the winter just so the engine gets some amount of heat to keep in the engine bay. During the summer we noticed the engine oil temperature was ~5 degrees cooler on average with the plates off.
