The quickest and most economical way of reducing engine noise IMO is to insulate the plastic engine cover and adding some heft to it.

It is very simple to remove the cross bars and engine cover and line the back of the engine cover with a material like this....

I personally used the below but would be curious how the 200 mil above compares

This is a cheap way to reduce engine noise and works pretty well. Would be curious to hear from the DIY crowd on the impact of this modification.

Would it be safe to use this to cover the bottom of the bonnet (hood)?

Also, can you post a video?

Yes I also placed the material on the metal between the hood pad and hood. No video although I may have some pictures. I bought one of the clip removers off amazon, took about 15 mins. Seems to have worked pretty well but it could be placebo. That is why I would be curious to hear the opinions of others who have done these modifications.

If anyone else have tried this, please report your results. Would be very interested with your feedback. The engine noise has always been an irritating distraction to me.

did this actually work?
any pics?
Dude we removed the engine and put in a lot of insulation... just changing the engine flywheel and clutch is better just for longevity. Coat the firewall with sound deadining material and other parts.. Did the job alone so didn't have too much time but there are ways to do it. But it worked. Drove cross country 2015....


Where were you then Lol...

i am interested since the engine noises are sometimes annoying.
i dont think i will go the extent you mentioned, but the engine cover and maybe the under side of the bonnet would be a good idea.
has anybody else here tried it?
