Wheel Well Question

So If I take off the plastic Wheel well cover will that effect the engine in anyway?

My tires keep rubbing after my drop so I thought I'd remove it. I figure on the driver side, I'd worry about water in my CAI and on the passenger side my Pulleys getting wet and slipping. On the other hand I remember there being like a metal plate in front of the engine on the passenger side.

I wouldn't. There is alot more stuff that those plastic liners protect. On mine upon removal it exposed the back side of the factory fogs, washer tank etc. Just to much in there for a tire generated sand blaster, rock slinger and whatever to damage. But it is your ride. Good luck.
