Great looking job. How does it hold up against the heat of motor? Also, is it quieter than factory insulation?

I've never done a side-by-side noise comparison. At idle, you only hear the exhaust, not the motor. At speed all you hear is water and wind -- at least from the driver's seat.
As for heat, there's never been a problem. In fact, the exhaust risers just touch the insulation but mine never get hot enough to melt anything.

Here is the closest equivalent to what you once could find in Overton's catalog...

I think you'll need the 2 roll kit.

I installed the stuff that "wheelerd" got from McMaster-Carr this past weekend and took the boat on the lake.... WOW! I was amazed at the different it makes. I started with just the burned up old stuff in it prior to the installation.
All you hear in idol is the bubbles and low rumble of the exhaust. I would highly recommend that stuff. I also sanded out the inside of the dog house first, to remove all the particles that may come lose and make the self stick not function.
