Best Cockpit Insulation?

I want to add some insulation to the cockpit floor/firewall/doghouse area both inside and outside. I did so maybe 10 years back with good results. I am sure there is much better insulation out today, any suggestions for the exterior insulation? I figure I will go right on top of the existing factory insulation using 3M Yellow spray adhesive which resists heat and holds extremely well.

Then I want to pull up the cockpit carpet, I was thinking of a good base insulation on the floor, then some thin but heavy duty padding, then new carpet. There are dozens of choices out there today, I thought I would ask if someone had good results doing this recently.

I am interested in primarily noise suppression which I reduced by at least 50% in the coach I did years ago.
