I'm debating trying the 5x11x22 with a nice 3" resonator in the midpipe. Really wish I could find some video/audio of a similar set up before doing it though.

One way to quiet down the muffler is to insulate the trunk floor. Sort of like covering the body of a guitar with silicone. Kills the resonance.

Tons of people have the 5x11x22 on a turbo Miata.

I'm thinking of getting it on an n/a Miata now... that's hard to find info on.

Said muffler was on my turbo car and is now on my V8 car where it sounds even better. It is one heavy sombitch though.

Seam welding helps with some frequencies of vibration. Spray on, or roll on bed liner from under trunk and the areas around the frame rails and above the rear subframe. Also fatmat ftw, light weight, cheep, easy on easy off, comes with a sticker...

Well I finally got to drive it extensively this weekend.

BIG DIFFERENCE

The car feels so much smoother, definitely less road noise, and best of all: no squeaks, rattles, or any weird sounds of any sort.

Absolutely love it

its called zillamat iirc. I bought 100sq/ft which is WAYY too much. used a little over 1/3 of it. I have a bunch left over if you're looking for some. at least 30-40ft worth, I can measure.

I found that a lot of my interior noise is actually wind noise coming through the rubber window seals. Over the years they have worn and the side windows don't seal fully against them, letting a lot of wind noise is.

Any buzzes, squeaks or rattles to contend with like me? I'm going to apply extra fatmat under the dash to hopefully stop some of those plastic against plastic pops and squeaks, and also tighten up any bolts I find, and apply Great Stuff into any cracks between parts to hold them in place.
