Were your originals 20lbs? If I did my online homework correctly my originals are 30's. I was thinking of moving to 40lbs to compensate for the weight gain. If you're happy with 20's maybe I don't need more strength. Can I ask what model you installed?

I looked at my receipt and (first) saw a 20 for the front seat. The engine cover lifts were originally 30 and I went back with 30 and am happy. Mine were the same brand as yours but that seems to no longer be available. When I put the kit inside the engine cover, I'll upgrade to 40.

I bought JR Products GSNI-5300-30 from Amazon, $16.42 each.

Done. I'm going to go with the 40's. I'll try and source them locally. If I come up with an interesting replacement I'll post the product numbers. Thanks for taking the time to check that out.

I am in the process of replacing my Engine Box Insulation. I wanted to report that I bought two cans of 3M Adhesive Remover. My advice is same your money and just buy a gallon of Acetone. It was the Acetone and 20+ rags (bought for $3.50) that worked. It took some hard rubbing, but my engine box cleaned up nicely.

Question for those of you whoe replaced yours, how much of a sound difference does it make really? My Sportstar has the two piece doghouse. The foam on the top part is in pretty decent shape. There is no foam at all on the bottom piece though. But after being in neighbors v drive this past weekend I realized how nice it is to not hear all of that motor noise all day. I know it won't be as quiet as a v drive with the engine 3 feet from my head but if it really helps quiet it down some it'll be worth it.

two rolls, $90 bucks, 2-3 hours of your time and it is well worth it...well on the 190 and 205 it's worth it. 36-38 mph seems(for me) to the point where the noise comes back up to normal status but its nice to cruise at 30-32-34 and carry on normal conversation without raising your voice. When wives can tell a difference you know it's working.

What brand? And where do you get it?

I and several other here have used Cool It Thermo Tec. I've gotten it from Amazon, $42 a roll, roll of tape, and a small hand roller for getting the corners / edges nice and flat.



A friend of mine did it to his 205, when we took it out, I was like wow, nice new mufflers and he showed me the Cool It - did mine a month later.

Bret did you just apply it to the upper part of the engine cover? Based on your picture that is what it looks like.
