Well First off I have to say that Dynamat definitly plays a big role in the quietness of my ride. There'* very little outside noise heard, especially from the rear, can't hear my exhaust at all, seriously. I agree that in my car I hear a lot of supercharger whine and Nopt much else. Wonder if your SLP box has something to do with it vs. my more open thrasher box too. Your box did look thicker than mine. I know you were jelous that my IAT temps were almost double ambient air.
Going to fix it up nice at the mod day on the 10th.
I do have to admit that your car did seem a little rougher/ louder than mine, but your butt meter was higher than mine, more pull than me. Don't think that you ruined your car, the only thing that your ruining is your Tranny! If some how you ruined your ssei by putting in headers and rockers and such, I guess my car is going to be ruined soon too.
I did notice that your 1-2 shift wasn't as quick as mine with the same shift kit, I thought that was interesting. My tranny is going to break sooner.
Maybe you should get your headers wraped soon, maybe that noise is getting to you. If a quieter ride is what your after. Go get some dynamat and just do the front doors. Not hard to do at all. Peel and stick, works great in cutting outside noise. Hardest part is taking off door panel and that not that hard, all you need is a panel popper.
I wonder how Pdad and Silver feel on the topic.
