Sound Deadening

Okay, I get a lot of wind and road noise in my truck, and with the new single shot injectors and open intake I'm getting a lot of engine compartment noise as well. I'd like to do some cheap tricks to help quiet things down inside if possible. I don't have any compaints about the turbo singing though

I've got a bunch of latex tubing to put in all the door seals, I hear that makes a pretty good difference in road noise. But what else can I do? Any tips or pointers?

Someone mentioned some type of sound deadening panels that came on Excursions? Anyone know about these?

Re: Sound Deadening

I don't know about any excursion panels, but I've heard very good results can be had by using the dynamat or similar materials. $ or $$, but worth it from what I've heard.

Go ARMY!

Re: Sound Deadening

If you just want to kill the sound, you need to go easy on the peal and seal type deadener (black sticky stuff with aluminum backer) because that is ideally for vibrations and go heavy on the closed cell foam type sound deadeners. I would still use some of the Dynamat type product but no reason to cover the complete inside of the truck. I really like the Second Skin products. They have some nice products that are specific for certain areas of your vehicle. You could always just go with some basic closed cell foam from Ebay. There is an Ebay seller called foamforyou that has some good pricing. You could go with something like this, 1/4in foam or this, 1/8in foam. You will need something like a 3M super 77 adhesive spray to apply it.

Road, engine & exhaust noise arn't an issue with me, it's the rattles that drive me nuts! Seems like I fix one & another one pops up!

Re: Sound Deadening

I'm thinking the door seal mods, and maybe something along the inside of the firewall.

I don't really notice how loud my truck is inside until I ride in my dads basically stock powerstroke.
