Well, I've come to think that with the STI it'll always be a tradeoff between my need for good sound (sound deadening) and the weight that goes with it and performance enhancements. Want to deaden your doors? Lose your spare tire. Floors and trunk? K&N Typhoon. Aftermarket exhaust will sometimes increase noise, more deadening needed. Use of more matting will not add much to weight. Use of some liquids appears to not add weight either (see quietcar.com). I agree with Rick, it's too bad you can't have the ideal combination coming out of the factory, but I'd rather start with a bare car like it is and make improvements
