Firewall Pad

Hi All, I had planned on using butyl sound deadening material instead of the OEM style firewall pad. Are there any issues or potential problems I'm missing with this plan? The material I have is 70 mils. Thanks!

Re: Firewall Pad

Dynomat, Rattletrap or some like material works fine. Then install a quality firewall mat on top of that.Make sure the holes are well insulated as the heat can be annoying if not sealed and padded properly.

Re: Firewall Pad

I used both as well. 2nd Skin mat on floor, firewall to the cowl section, then GM firewall type mat on top of that.
