I have no idea where to post this on this site, but I'll give it a whirl.

I have a 1994 toyota pickup for a DD. 22re, 5-speed, gets me 27+ mpg on the highway, and I love it. I recently decided to try and make it more comfortable for the 50 mile commute I have everyday, so I researched sound dampening. So far I've ended up putting about 2.5 rolls of buytl flashing on the doors, transmission tunnel and on the sheet metal behind the seat.

For the $50 I spent, the truck is considerably quieter on the highway and around town :), however the motor is pretty freaking loud, valves rattle a ton (they are within spec) and I can hear all of it. There is no hoodliner, and I'm going to look at getting one, but what else could I do to get less noise in the cabin? I'd try the flashing on the firewall, but I fear the engine bay gets too hot and it does more dampening than absorbtion.

Keep in mind I'm not looking to spend tons of money on this, and if there are "jury-rigged" ways to make a hood liner I'm more than game.
