Sound insulation

    I have used my loader twice this year and both times I have been stopped by the cops for making too much noise.
    I am looking for some sound insulation to cover the engine and transmission bay to try and soak up the noise.
    Does anyone know where I can get something that would holdup and not be too expensive?
    Thank you Hyperpack

    You must have a Detroit diesel,I have Detroit in my loader,yes it is noisy.I may add a second muffler,most of the noise mine makes is exhaust,and a lot of supercharger whine too.I dont think there ism uch we can do to make much of a difference,they are just loud.
