Thumbs down these things are EVIL!

these always seem to scrape against my skin when I work under the hood of the Camaro when it comes to working with the intake manifold, fuel rails or just reaching around in the back against the firewall. My forearm would catch against the numerous sharp edges leaving cuts that look like I was trying to give a bobcat a handjob

Every time I pulled a intake off a f body looks like i get into a fight with a cat! I showed my car what's up when I cut the cowl out of it .

is that even an option to cut the cowl out? wouldnt it disrupt any type of air cooling similar to the bottom air dam?
