I've heard that much of the engine noise in the cabin may come through the rear window. Has anybody ever tried installing basic hood scoops (like this, http://www.showcars-bodypar...X-hood-scoop-135.jpg ......only somewhat taller for more ventilation area). Maybe install some insulation under the rear deck lid and install the scoops facing rearward on each vent opening.
I'll tell you what I tell my Youngest daughter when I turn my tunes up, she likes country, I like old time Classic Rock and Roll,
"If it's to load, your to old!"
Simplest and best as well as most cost affective is earplugs.
I like the sound of the engine noise, tells me it's running right or not, many people don't, buy earplugs. Or do like my wife used to when she heard some new noise made by the cars/trucks we have owned over the last 30 years, Turn the Radio UP.
She doesn't do that anymore since I explained the noises are telling you something, then tell me about them so I can fix whatever is making the new noise. That and when she didn't tell me right away and just turned the radio up things got worse, more expensive to fix. She is a Pollack, I think they are cheaper than Jews sometimes.
Other than that I got nothing.
