Re: Best way to soundproof engine compartment?
If it is just foam it will last for years with only glue holding it on. Soundown is heavy because it has the mass vinyl layer in the middle - this is what quiets the deeper sound of a diesel. Lead was used for this in the past. The additional fastenings I posted earlier are not hard to install and do a good job.
