Re: Acoustic Insulation for engine room?

Acoustic Insulation sounds great but it is expensive. I am thinking of a free solution for me.I have a lot 1" closed cell foam sheets (4x8)lying around and was thinking about lineing my engine compartment with this (this is fire resistant CSA compliant insulating material.) I know it probably won't work as well but would it help reduce the noise coming out of my engine room. The motor (yanmar ysm 12)is out right now for a rebuild so I could line the whole area and it won't cost anything but a little time.
