    How to reduce outside noise

    I drove my fiances' 04 Tundra the other day and realized it is way quieter than my 03 WRX, especially when driving on the freeway. What can I do to make it quieter in my Suby. It's so loud I don't even talk on my cell when driving because I can't here what the other person is saying. Any info is appreciated.

    You can line your car with a terd load of dynamat....it'll add some weight but def. reduce the noise

    Easiest way to fix this.... a lot of dynomat. Or another vehicle. I know many people complain about noise with our cars, but I have always ignored it.

    Fun Factor > Road Noise

    You think the WRX is bad, you should give an STi a go .

    Great car, but it basically says. "I go fast, and I am loud. Period."

    Nuff said, y0'z

    BTW: This post is not meant to be insulting. After I read it through again, I felt I am coming off a bit rude.

    It's more like a few lbs. at best.

    400?

    To the OP: do you have aftermarket exhaust? Wagon or sedan?

    +1 My Z has quite a bit of tire roar/ road noise and it doesn't bother me. If I wanted a quiet car I would have gotten some kind of entry level luxury car.

    Some strategically placed dynamat and a good serving of closed-cell foam (volara or ensolite for example) and you'll notice a significant reduction in overall noise. By using the foam (which is very light) you can really limit how much dynamat you use (you don't need much for this purpose), thus saving weight.

    i believe raamat is just as good, but cheaper. go to the car, audio, and security forum in nasioc and read offset's manifesto. it will have all the info you'll ever need for this.
