I get it, its louder then my exhaust burble at idle. I have NO sound deading, actually at the moment i have no front, might be a factor....

Theres stuff u can buy for under bonnet, on bulkhead etc. Cant remember name tho, sorry.

Nope, just engine noise and induction roar. What do you mean chugging and squeaking?

My cam belts squeel like f**k. I think theres a dry bearing in there. Anyway, Im geting it all changed as its due a belt change any time soon.

My mini has got TUNS of sound proofing around the front and under the hood. I had to take all the sound proofing out behind my dash so my headunits would fit in!

Don't you just wish we could add audio to threads !

Squeeking could be anything from a dry suspension joint to a worn engine steady, the mouse in the engine is getting tired.... :cheese:

Chuggin like a tractor sounds like one of the cylinders may be miss'ing ( not fallen off ), but the small bores have a tedancy to sound like that anyway..
