    What product are you using for insulation/sound deadening?

    When I said that everything under the car was going stealth I meant it lol. Picked up the Saleen/Magnaflow catback from ceramic. The entire Hotside and exhaust all the way back from turbo to the tailpipes is stainless and satin black ceramic coated. The original Saleen tailpipes with chambered exhaust tips will go polished IMG_7807.JPG IMG_7808.JPG

    Noico 80mil. It really lays down nice and adheres well

    I know weight is not high on a priority list for this build but any guess how much the insulation and sound deadening may have added?
    I’m wanting to do the same but just wanted an idea of the weight it will add.

    Thanks

    We were actually having a laugh about this last night as I finished installing the last section. It’s a good thing this isn’t a race car because it probably added between 20-25 pounds to the car. The trade off in this case was well worth it

    That’s actually not to bad! I could live with that considering the benefits. Mine is full weight full factory interior 2003 Cobra except for an aluminum block tubular front suspension and an SRA. So definitely haven’t tried pulling any weight at this time.
    100 lbs would be a different story lol.

    Got the new mass back black ACC carpet in the sun to let the wrinkles relax so this interior can start going in IMG_7817.jpg

    Curious how the fitment is when it’s all said and done. Been thinking about getting an ACC carpet myself.

    I used it on the previous build as well. It takes a lot of patience and small amounts of trimming to get it right but it's pretty nice overall. Nothing will ever fit as well as the factory rug though so don't expect that. I like to put new carpet in every build. Makes such a massive difference in not just appearance, but even the smell of the interior. After the insulation, new carpet and new seats....this will literally have "the new car" smell when done. Then again, it is literally a....new car

    I don’t mind having to do a little trimming. As long as it fits nice and tight and isn’t loose causing it to bunch up I’d be happy with it. Doing my seats as well be nice to have the New Car smell again.

    Upon further review the Holley pumps I had were evidently not ethanol compatible and we want to make sure this car can be tuned on e85. Sooo I picked up this beauty, these are sharp. Good for 1500 hp on e IMG_7854.JPG

    We liked the idea of going in line based on our experience with sloshing and pump starvation for hard cornering
