Default 5.7L Engine Cover

Does anyone agree there is no need for the engine cover other than aesthetics? Seems to me that cover holds alot of heat and serves no real purpose. Has anyone else removed theirs?

No real purpose that I can see other than to cover up an otherwise ugly area.

I guess I could have it painted to match my rugged brown Longhorn?

If you take your engine cover off and want to sell it let me know, I might want to buy it. Must fit a 2010.

PS: hicksrt--Thanks for the answer to my PM.
