Question underhood heat gaurd?

I want to take the backing plate out from under the hood scoop on me '98 Legacy GT come spring - I would also like to remove the heat "pad", as I imagine it has some weight and I would need to pull it anyhow to get the plate out.

any advise? is it alright to keep it out? and what does it do anywho (the pad that is)?

It keeps the hood from absorbing all of the heat from the motor. Ever notice on some older cars the paint flaking off on the hood?? Personally I'm leaving mine on since I know Subaru paint is well errrr yeah can't think of a good word for it.

Do not remove the heat pad. you'll mess up your hood, plus the wait of the heat pad will not make a difference... if your trying to reduce the weight remove the bumper beams

But definately take off the backing plate off of the hood scoop. You might not have an intercooler under there, but that doesn't mean the scoop won't keep the engine bay cooler.

Thanks for the relpies...

I will leave it in - but yes, I am taking out the backing plate. I wasn't looking for a weight reduction, just thought why not if it was ok - but I like my hood, so I'll keep the pad in

An open scoop and the throttle body coolant line disconnect should get me a cooler air charge and thus Mo Powa! haha
I will reconnect the coolant line for winter though

later
