My BL has the mat which means I should probably pull one and look. Some are Christmas tree style, some have that stupid expander you push in after the thing is on. You will poo yourself if you ever pull rear inner trim panels off. There's no reason why they used so many different types.

I guess I'm missing something here, I just looked over my build (lux obx 2dr) and the B&P on Ford's site, and I'm not seeing a kit for under the hood sound deadening? I see the roof deadening kit option. Can someone shed some light on this for me? thanks.

It's included in lux package.

Have you seen it listed somewhere? I'm looking at Ford's PDF listing models and trim levels and don't see it. (not that I don't believe you) wondering why I haven't heard about this, that's all. thanks.

Edit: I installed the sound deadening and it took 13 plugs as reported by @flip. It was a super easy upgrade. Seems to make a bit of difference in the amount of engine noise, but not night and day. I will know more once I hit 1000 miles and get to step on the gas. The sound deadening is more of a rigid fiber board construction than the wooly stuff I’ve seen on my older vehicles. The plugs are just as pictured a few comments back. I paid $3 each, but I’m sure they can be found cheaper.

I installed the sound deadening and it fact only took 12 plugs. It was a super easy upgrade. Seems to make a bit of difference in the amount of engine noise, but not night and day. I will know more once I hit 1000 miles and get to step on the gas.
Did you take any photos of the pad or retainer plugs? Curious what the plugs look like.

For the sound you may need the firewall deadening.
