Tim,

Since you did not order the touring package, I have a favor to ask from you. Please let me know if there is any soundproofing in the engine compartment like the one in the attached photo from an Elise with Touring Package (see that black and white flocked shell).

Whether that pad is there or not...it's pretty minimal sound proofing.

It could be effective though at attenuating transmitted sound from the inner metal to the other metal wall.

I checked last night (still no pictures), and mine (non-touring) looks exactly the same (except the paint is orange)...

I guess it depends on what you mean by effective. It might be hard to tell a difference if you drive the car with / without it.

No, the insulation is just somewhere else (probably on the inside of the car). Then again, I didn't order the Touring Pack...:)
