How old are the "seniors" (over 65) on this forum?

Wondering about the insulation in the trunk and under the back seat. Is it for road noise sound proofing, and if so does it work?
Too much tire noise on some road surfaces for me, sometimes I can barely hear my H-Pipe delete....... 🤷🏼‍♂️
I agree with you. These cars are terrible with road noise in the rear. Many people have pulled all the panels and back seat to apply sound deadening. I didn't want to get into that so bought a full trunk mat from BLOCKIT. Goes right in over the existing carpet, etc. and is easily removed. Works pretty good but doesn't cover the wheel wells.

I wanted to cut down on road noise. It helped a bit. It added about 35 lbs., if that’s a concern.

Thanks for the reply.
You did a great job, looks well done.
Thanks for adding the 35 pounds part, I think I'll have to ponder that a little.
Especially if it doesn't cut MOST of it out. 👍

Thanks for the info.
I've never heard of that product.
I'll check it out, it definitely appeals to my lazy nature.
But am I actually lazy, or just conserving energy?
Something else to ponder...... 😎
ETA I checked out that Blockit, looks like a nice solution. I couldn't find the weight listed anywhere on their website.
Do you have any idea?

74 here. First mustang was a 67 2+2 with the 390 and 4 speed. Then I went 40 years before buying a 2016 gt premium. Now I have a 2019 GT premium with PP1 and a Roush phase 2 SC. This is all to make up for that 40 years of boring drives.

This was the 16. Don't have any pictures left of the 67 but it was Canary Yellow. Guess I care more about how the car runs instead of the color.

Actually I didn't think much about road noise; to me the car is pretty quiet (although I haven't ridden in the back seat so...) Then again, all I drove before were Japanese compacts and those are a lot noisier even in the front. It's been awhile since I rode in a 3700 lb. car which is smooth and quiet to me.

71 here. Started with an '88 GT fastback, followed by a '99, '13, and now '18. The last three GT convertibles. All stick, and all factory orders so I could have it "my way".
I tried to time my replacements when there was a horsepower bump. 225/260/420/460 hp.

My last mustang was an 05 GT, I think it was 300HP.
I felt like I didn't really NEED the extra 130HP, I just liked the way the 2020 looked.
I was WRONG....... 😎

Must have missed that bump. When the coyote 1st gen was released, I started looking for a used one. Found out both the 1st and 2nd were available for order at the same time, so no brainer, 2nd gen factory order.

It is a multi layer soundproofing pad, around an inch and a half or so thick. Fairly heavy, probably 15-20 pounds. I don't keep anything in my trunk but wiping towels for washing so I have never been concerned about the additional weight. It also has a separate piece that can be removed if you have the subwoofer in the trunk.

Where I come from we started Pumping Iron around 17/18, 16 oz curls to be exact.

If I remember correctly, it tasted like carbonated bilge water, but it was $6.00 a case.

I think a lot of noise comes from the spare tire well if you don't have a spare. It's like a drum! OBTW I'm a member of the old farts club too!

Excellent.
I've got some mod money burning a hole in my pocket, and this thing's already plenty fast for me.
I believe I'll give one of these mats a try.
Thanks again for the recommendation. 👍
