Under Hood Nonsense

Ok, so on thurs. i removed my hood scoop from my car to add a grill to it. (came out mean-looking by the way). While doing this i tore some of the nonsense under the hood. it was originally yellow insulation type-stuff, but with less than 2,000 miles on the car, its black. Is that normal and is their a function of it? Also its just plain ugly, Can i remove it?

Yes it is normal that it turned black. I think it is some kid of heat shielding to protect the hood from getting too hot but I am not sure. Can you remove it? Yes but should you remove it? I don't know
