Re: Acoustic Insulation for engine room?

So, would something like this have a max. temp. that's too low?
McMaster-Carr

At the recommendation of some of the guys on another forum I used to frequent, I used that on a car to help acoustically insulate the passenger compartment. I realize the inside of an inboard's engine compartment will likely get warmer than my old car, but I can't help but wonder if this might not help. I mean, the inside of the engine compartment is largely made of wood; what's the max. temp. there?

Just a thought...
