I did an experiment using some cheaper duct insulation (sticky foam with heavy aluminum foil on it) and it did cut down on the noise quite a bit. Total cost about $12. I know there is more expensive stuff out there (Dynamat) but for the money it was worth a try.

I turned my cowl upside down and sprayed a layer of expanding foam over it after it was dry I carved out needed areas for clearance. Been working good for 3 years.

I don't know what mine was rated for. I do know that there is a new foam on the market made to use as a firestop in buildings. That would be the one to use now.
