Im not going to be removing my carpet for good. I took out the carpet to either re-dye it or just install a new one but since it will be easily acessible to remove and replace the old sound deadening, I thought it would be a good way to upgrade.

And as badhabits said, I will then be able to see where the water is slowly coming through. Haven't looked over everything yet, but im assuming it's something simple.

Have you checked out Dynamat Superlite? Supposedly it's only an average weight increase of about 30 lbs to do the majority of the car. Looks quality and I am sure keeping the weight increase to a minimum is a concern for us all.

Above poster, at first glance I thought your screen name said something about virgin asian fest. LOL just saying.

LMAO. Everyone judges the name. I just don't see a point in changing it now after having it for years.

No, don't change it. I'd love to encounter a festival full of virgin asian girls and rock every one of them :x

Good thing I saw a post like this. Planning to pull the carpet and dash to put deadening in the spring. Not too concerned about weight since I already used Dynamat in the rear. I'll keep this thread on note.

After doing my research, it looks like I'm just going to go with dynamat. Ive read about how other companies have just taken roof liner and renamed it as a sound deadener and priced it half as much as dynamat which makes it appealing to people like us because of the low price. The cheaper sound deadeners also have a tendency to melt in higher temperatures and cause a tar type smell which I dont want.

But dynamat is the only company out there that has trully went out, did their research and made a product that is designed for cars and made a product that is going to last hence the higher price. Since dynomat is more expensive than I anticipated spending, I'm going to be doing it in about a month in a half from now and for the time being will just live without sound deadening. But I will do a full write up for the people who are thinking about installing sound deadening.

As for weight, it wasn't really a concern for me but if it really starts adding a lot of unwanted weight, its nothing that a carbon fiber hood cant fix
