Default How do I make this daily driver quiet?

The title says it all. I'm tired of the 91db cruising. What should I buy to kill the noise and any other tips?

His DD isn't turbo. He must be talking about interior noise.

Do what 18psi has shown.

if its interior noise we're talking about then yes, do what I posted originally.

next week I can even provide real feedback on before/after.

also I bot a metric TON of the stuff and can sell you some if you want it

No idea. Its in my garage waiting on the dash to go back in. I'll probably drive it tomorrow and let you know.

I'm expecting significant improvement or I'm going to rage face.

Because not race car.

You want a quieter car, but not to sound deaden it.

Try earplugs.

Three years from now when you have to scrape it off with a flamethrower and a pneumatic hammer you will feel it. regret

Use this vinyl stuff from Parts Express. It's not difficult to remove once the car has a new purpose. It's lightweight and has a pleasant new-car-smell once installed.

Do what Vlad posted. The bulk of road noise comes from the back. The biggest gains in order are (in my opinion) 1) rear package tray, 2) rear bulkhead behind seats, 3) trunk floor, and 4) the floorpan under the carpet.

Read the link I posted. :P

CLD Tile to kill resonance first.

Then MLV over that will control noise. You only need 25% CLD, so use CCF to mount the MLV over as it needs to be seperated from the surface. Or just CLD everything if you want to spend.
