alaskanzx5 pull the dash and put deadener under it. would help keep the dash from rattling to.

i personally like a low rumble from an engine.

mister_eff Has anyone tried putting sound deadening material in the "firewall" (area behind dash, I put it in quotes because the term is new to me) to help reduce engine noise? Aside from road noise, the low frequency rumble of the engine bothers me.

Thanks.

its a simple choice. either you can cheap out and do what people say works or do it right and do what is proven to work.

Yes, it will help with road noise slightly, but its not the best route to take if you wish to kill outside noises. Second Skin makes something thats called Luxury Liner, which is a layer of foam almost that you roll out in the car. I would recommend apply that to your floors and whatnot if you want to really "deaden" the car.
02Zetechse covered that.

When my windows are up, you can barely hear my system on the outside. Which is good because it decreases the chances of my system getting jacked.

Covering deadener with Ensolite(closed cell foam)helps a lot also is a good(cheaper)option as well. MLV(Mineral or, Mass Loaded Vinyl)is a great option as well. But getting it to stick on things that are not the floorpan can be tricky.

02Zetechse well yes mass loading a panel is the most common way to deaden a vehicle, but you also miss the fact that alot of deadeners also absorb vibration from the exterior and convert it into low level heat, peel and seal is pure mass loading, no other benifit

Are you telling this member that expanding foam is a be all end all? I do have a little in my car but, it is for a certain thing.
Im telling him i got better results from the foam rather than Sound Deadener.
