Rubber pads that cover the engine?

I'm in the middle of doing an engine swap, and was wondering if those rubber pads are needed, especially the one under the throttle bodies. I assume they are to help keep engine heat out of the cockpit. Anyone remove them and have any excess heat?

My 08 model doesn't have them and sure wish it did ... lots of heat and dust coming up between the seats and engine cover

I have an 08 and upgraded to the rubber heat shields. They are a pain to work on the engine with but do really help keep the heat out of the cab. I took mine off during the winter but last weekend found out it is getting warmer so will be putting them back on before the next ride.

After doing a bit of research on the forum, I read about a guy that used Dynomat on the inside of the plastic engine covers to contain the heat. I have mine off right now because we are swapping engines and have some Dynomat left over from a hot rod project I recently finished up. I think I will give it a try.

I lined my bed and all the inside of the plastics with dynomat or similar material. It was fine for a few years but finally came unglued. The stuff under the bed stayed mostly but the ones on the plastic have mostly fallen off.
