Got an email this morning about these Soundown kits. Anyone use this kit before, or know if the material is the right stuff to use. Just looking to put it on my engine box to try and knock down the turbo whine.

I installed this on my engine box, definitely made a huge difference for my John Deere. I used 1 inch but I have been told the 2 inch works the best. It was worth the money for my application.

The yachtsman deluxe with the vinyl barrier works good. Don't use the material without the vinyl barrier. The kit works good for installing the soundown material and makes for a neat installation on a motor box.

One other thing to consider, look at turbo insulating blankets. If you do a google search for them, theres quite a few to choose from. Mostly asks for the make and size of your turbo.

It would cover just the turbo, not sure if it would affect performance, holding the heat in like that.

Give Soundown a call and tell them what you have and what your goals are, they will tailor a means to get you there, step by step if you want to do it a little at a time. They understand that their product is expensive but that when correctly applied, it works well. Make sure you have filled all gaps at hatch seams and wire conduit passages before you do anything, a lot of bang for the buck, they will tell you the same thing. 2" 2# is the best they offer, it works noticeably better than the 1# stuff. Also, attention to detail, how it is attached makes a big difference. Read their literature before calling them, it will help you make better decisions and ask better questions. Cheers.
