sound deadener in trunk area

has anyone installed sound deadener (either Dynamat or FatMat) in the trunk area (floor, tailgate, quarter panels) to help eliminate road noise and exhaust drone?

thinking about installing FatMat now that i've got the Borla-S back on the SRT and the low-RPM drone is becoming annoying....

love the throatiness and mean-ness of the Borla but that low level resonance is unnecessary IMHO.

peace

Boz

Re: sound deadener in trunk area

I had not considered it but that's a good idea. Let us know how it works out

The trunk floor would be easy enough.. how hard do you reckon the quarters and lift gate would be to do? how hard is it to remove the trim?

I'm happy to do a 'how-to' if this works out, and if it produces reasonable results. I've already purchased 20 square feet of FatMat so it should be done in about a week or two.

Ive successfully used a product called wavebar before. I installed it under the carpet the whole length of the cabin, boot/trunk and doors. Not sure if just doing the back will be enough.

What result did you get? Any noticeable difference?

Huge difference. Wavebar is pretty heavy though. Added about 60kg to the vehicle.
