It's only there for sound deadening. It won't hurt anything.

You might call the dealer and ask them. I would love it if I could take mine out but car has a warranty so no dice. I like the engine sound very much and have no problem with it being louder.

Taking of the inner hood liner will adventually effect the paint on the hood. It was placed there for a reason. As a sound deadner and heat shield. The company I work for specializes in sound deadning and heat reflection.
Have you heard of dynamat. We carry a product called hood liner. This product has a heat reflectant shield along with an acoustical foam. I have witnessed several engine fires that have not affected the paint, due to the hood liner. Check out the website: www.dynamat.com

Streetneazi is right about the engine fires. The hood mat will drop and help snuff the fire
