Does anyone have some photos of the Mods you did to it?
When I open the Doghouse next time I will take some photos
of how I insulated the Turbo with the Thermo-Tec Turbo Wrap
And as most of you know I wrapped my exhaust system complete from the turbo to the Tip, and even the Round Magnaflow Muffler with the 2" Heat Tape Wrap, Natural color.
It completely removed any and all drone in the system. It's amazing how quiet it is inside now.
It took 2 - 50' Foot boxes of the 2" I believe, I think I used 3 Boxes but I cannot remember, and 2 boxes of the Stainless band clamps, you cut the strap to your length and slide these connectors on them, great system.
After 7 Years of the Wrap on the exhaust, no problems at all. The wrap kinda repels the water off of it.
My van also has 2-3 layers of DynaMat on the inside, and DynaLiner, DynaPad. If you remove the two front door Panels you can install the 1/2" thick DynaLiner Black Foam and it will self-stick to the door panel you remove, then screw it back on the door. It will stick out 1/2" more but you don't really notice it very much and the road noise goes down so much. I also installed the Extreme Mat on the Inside door skins, but just doing the 1/2" DynaLiner to the door panels is the most bang for the buck. If you want to go more do the inside door skins. The Inside Doghouse has the extra 1/2" Silver sided Dynamat Under Hood Kit installed, it also helped a bit.
The exhaust heat tape wrap is so good, you can touch the wrap while the exhaust is hot, I only touched it near the tail pipe though. I'm sure at the downpipe it's much hotter.
