I think any CAI unit will hit the hood insulation also. I wouldn't worry, but I'll have to look at mine now!

I noticed mine was rubbing also... I took the insulation off... The paint underneath the insulation wasn't too bad...

Is it only the Ford cover that rubs? I have the other one that came out last year.

Yup, I noticed mine is also rubbing. I now have a line worn across the top of the cover. It's been on for about 3 weeks.

What da?

Any possible solutions guys?? Trimming the insulation (like with a sander?) and painting it so that it does not continue to crumble?

Where exactlly does it rub??

Interesting. I have the Ford cover and the double Steeda brace on top of that and neither rubs.

Yeah, that is interesting. Considering that the brace is at least 1/2 inch taller that the cover.
