Interesting question. I think you'd be fine, but I've heard one reason for engine covers is to increase operating temps to increase fuel efficiency.

Why would you want to remove the covers?

There's not much that you can take off. There's a small plastic cover over the coil packs that protects them from water and oil, but is otherwise unnecessary. Most of the cover is, well, NOT optional.

oh ok then well how can i change the spark plugs
Take the cover off, remove the coil packs, change the plugs, replace the coil packs, and put the cover back on.

I agree with the poster above about the cover protecting the coils from water splashing and oil contamination.
