The A.S.S. won't do it.

Should cost you 30k and you can get 8k back for your old head.

I'm planning to do the same to my car as soon as i find a good replacement.

But i swapped the whole motor

Wow. Absolutely loved the overall look of your car. Specially the body color and Rims combo. I'm also looking to freshen up my OHC, I want to make the cabin more silent. Too much engine noise.. Damping sheets??

I'm sure the numbers are put up somewhere in this thread. It's two years now, so pardon any mistakes. IIRC:

Headers : 17K
Exhaust : 8K
K&N : 6K with plumbing & install
5 alloy wheels & tyres : 39ish K difference (exchanged the OE Vtec alloys + worn out tyres)
Pioneer HU + iPod cable + reinstalling : About 10K

My recommendation : Turn up the stereo volume.

Navins (professional) recommendation : Damping sheets.

Turning up the car volume can
1. lead to deafness if you are exposed to loud noises/music for long periods
2. reduce the effective dynamic range of the music system as the noise floor will be higher as compared to a vehicle that is well damped.
3. reduce your awareness of traffic and this can lead to accidents.

Turning up the car volume also leads to:-
- Feeling younger then you actually are.
- Improved Reflexes, alertness.
- Eyeball attractions.
- Faster speeds.
- Wider smile on your face when the bass kicks in.
- Improved Bathroom singing

In your case, adds to the horsepower of the car!

Got a chance to see this car at the Blind Man's Rally. Looks cool and sounds very nice indeed!

I know we are going OT here, but everytime someone talks about Swift's rattling, the public asks to increase the volume levels.

My 1 month old Swift has already started to rattle, and I am considering damping it, even when I dont plan to upgrade the stock ICE setup. Simple reasons being highlighted by Navin. Plus I also think more the volume, more will be the metal vibrations which finally leads to more irritation

While on the topic, has anybody installed a typhoon intake kit on OHC? The custom intake piping made of SS gets very hot, very soon. Damodhar at Oz One (Bangalore) told me that, there's no Typhoon intake for OHCs.

Sorry if this is OT guys, last question regarding damping sheets, where all should they be applied? Just floor and front doors good enough? And do they really make a noticeable difference? Thanks.
