Yeah hooning laws are getting tough these days and even if i dont try my engine still sounds loud and cammy so i might just place some sound shield on the under bonnet to keep that noise down a bit..

It costs about $100 and its easy stuff to cut and mould etc.. so i might do that sometime soon.

maybe you don't have the original bonnet ... has your car been in a front end stack? ... it's not unusual for panel beaters to not replace things like the insulation if they stick a new bonnet on a car, it increases the profit margin

Yes both...I didnt think the stock XR ticky cams made the engine so bloody loud, i wouldnt mind keeping that noise down a bit.. LOL even if it works only slightly atleast then it would still be quieter. :roll:

does your bonnet have the factory stickers on it, belt tension etc on it? ... if it doesn't, chances are it's not original

My fairlane had the insulation but l removed it to let some heat escape from the engine bay. The hotter my bonnet is after a drive then the cooler the head is. Didnt even think about the wieght as it's all of probably 1 kg.

without any underbonnet shielding you use to be able to almost fry a egg on the bonnet after a bit of a drive. now you can at least touch it. the way i see it if its there its obvoiusly there for a reason.

How so? Its not that bad, as long as the insulation isnt damaged, theres no reason why i wouldnt mind it going back on a new bonnet!

But why pay for new insulation when you can reuse the original :S Its not like its glued up or anything, its just held by little push studs that pull out. So just take it off one, stick it back on the other!
