I just installed it in my motor box and was on the lake today for the first time with it. I used the 1 inch skinned self-adhesive stuff. Time will tell how the adhesive holds but it sure is quiet. I can hear the exhaust rumble better now.
Wheelerd, Maybe someone has asked this before, but how many feet do I need to buy of the 54" wide stuff for my 1994 engine box?

Thanks!

I ordered 8' and that was enough. There were a few scraps left over. Your 94 should be the same as my 91.
Do the main center piece first since it's the most complicated. Be sure to leave a bit extra on both ends -- better to have to cut some off after than have it too short.

One roll is just enough to do the engine box with just a little left over. I would recommend it.
BrianM - how is this holding up - do you like it? Any pics?

Holding up great. Seems to provide about the same insulating properties as the original. Sorry no pics but next time I'm at the lake I'll take a couple if I can remember.

Just to add to those who have been pleased with the McMaster-Carr insulation, I have been very happy in the recent months with my install.

I used 7' of the foil-faced, self-adhesive stuff as thick as they make it. I was tentative about the adhesive at first but very glad I went that route now. It adhered really well and the engine stays nice and clean.

I would recommend getting 8' to anyone trying it in the future, 7' took some very intelligent cutting to have enough.

Craig: It sounds like you purchased the 1" foil face adhesive backed foam @ 14.01 per foot? Where you able to place the foam under the metal strip at the bottom of your engine box or was it too thick? Any other install tips besides buying an '8 section. Any pics? tks, mac
