Thats vibration damping material not absorption. A good carpet underlayment with sound absorbing foam, would provide additional absorbtion. Someplace on the site is pic of someone that used good absorption material on the engine cowl in place of the OEM fuzzy crap.

SOundproof Cow is a good source of info and material if you want to go a step further.

You did a great job on applying the damping.

Good job on the sound deadening material. The floor and doors together will help a lot. looks like you ran it up on the firewall as far as you could, that also will reduce engine noise coming through. It should all make a considerable difference. While the main purpose is for sound, it does also provide some insulation value.

Thanks! Yes if you look at Eastwoods website it does some of both. I saw another material that claims R8 that is kind of like carpet pad with a foil back. If this doesn't do enough for the heat I will add that to the mix!
We will find out later this week and it is hot!!!
