Do you have any data on how much noise reduction is attributable to the pads in front? I have a nopisy electric fuel pump I'm trying to quiet down

 


The material will reduce the panel noise transfer and aide in noise reduction. I do not have a specific dB reduction specification. Density at 3/8” is 4.0-5.0 per lb. 

 

By the ear test there is a good amount of reduction, or softening of the transfer of sound. 
 

Hope this helps.

Have been considering rubber mount between fuel pump bracket and engine compartment panel.

Haven't found quieter pump (Carter).

People who have pump in trunk says noise still there, just behind you now.

Have louder muffler.

Drive faster than I probably should.

Will go with pads next.

Using later E21 fuel pump underbody is $$ option.

Go back to original mechanical pump. Upgraded when went to 2bbl Weber as suggested. Not sure it needs it.
