anyone use any pad to avoid the noise from outside?

I'm thinking to get a pad that can avoid the noise from outside ( my dinan exhaust is always too loud for normal driving), can someone suggest any kinda pad that will do the job? and where can I get it?

Andy,

I have to agree with you, I installed the exhaust yesterday and it is already annoying me. It drones inside the cabin, doesn't it? I am also thinking on some deadening material to put under the trunk, that's where I think the sound is coming from, but I can be wrong. Maybe Dynamat? We can get it at Best Buy...I might want to try in a couple of weeks.

Yeah, i really hate that annoying noise coming out of my exhaust, but i'm thinking to get the dynamat and put it on the doors and rear panels, will that work better if i put the dynamat in trunk? what kind of material will work the best?

Don't waste your money on DynaMat

Get some High Temp Mastic...from http://www.mcmaster.com/
It is the same EXACT stuff DynaMat is made of. I lined my entire trunk with it and it helped reduce vibrations and noise. I think it's only $12 for an entire sheet.
