Hymer 644 Noisekiller

I am about to install some on my Hymer 644 bought from Noisekiller - seems simple enough to install but I am putting in both side of the front dash area and coupled with an engine cover.

Engine Sound Proofing

Following purchase of an "A" Class 2.8JTD I complained about Turbo Noise to dealer and eventually they fitted noise killer matting. (Noise was a sort of gurgling when pulling uphill)
Matting was fitted to engine cover and floor of cab area, underside of dashboard sited over engine and in addition an engine apron which is suspended at rear of engine itself. I can`t really say I would be overly keen to have to pay for it myself, it might reduce noise a little but you are`nt suddenly going to go into raptures about how quiet it is, the Turbo still gurgled! We also found Tyre Noise to be quite high. We now have an X250 which makes the older 2.8JTD sound like a farm vehicle.

Turbo Noise

Just to put anyone`s mind at rest about Turbo`s following Paapjohns comment (beware those whose sole aim in life is to make negative comments on these Forums) our van ran for five years with no engine problems other than the noise pulling hard uphill. I have owned a Chrysler where the Turbo whistled under load and I gather some Turbo`s do make a noise.

What's an X250 then?

I have had the noise killer fitted and its made a big differance, they fitted it and put it on the wheel arches, I noticed it made the whole journy home much better!

I had it done yesterday, took the van to Oldham and paid the extra for them to fit it all, it has made a big differanc for me! It was a much better drive home!

I don't wish to be viewed as a 'negative' contributor to the forum but on this one I'm in agreement with Paapjohn.
I used to drive a turbo diesel car, the turbo started whistling and i ignored it, drove it around for weeks with no problem then one day driving along a duel carriageway all this black smoke appeared behind me, better stop then , foot off accelerator, no change the car is still pulling away, panic stations :shout: I'm going down an incline towards a traffic light controlled roundabout under the M5 in a car that won't stop.
Clutch in emergency stop on verge, engine racing, turn off ignition, no effect engine still racing thick black smoke everywhere, hand brake on foot brake on first gear clutch straight up, that stopped it.
The oil seal on the turbo had broken down and the engine was running on the sump oil, the outcome of my ignoring the noisy turbo was a complete new turbo and a short engine.
Morel of story if you have a noisy turbo get someone whok nows what they are doing to check it out.
I'm normally a very positive person,::bigsmile: honestly
