In terms of engine noise or road noise? don't think they're loud enough to be an annoyance in stock form at least.

there are online stores that have thicker carpets to reduce noise

Auto Carpet for Car, Truck, Van - Stock Interiors

there are also shps that specifucally sell the hush matt and sound deadener

Vehicle Sound Deadening Materials for Noise Reduction, and Thermal Insulation. Call 800 679-8511. | Second Skin Audio, Made in the USA.

and if you wanna make your exhaust quieter look into a good heavy resonator

you could look into undercoating, its not going to be significant but does help.

If you don't have a stock exhaust, get one.

You put in a greddy exhaust but at the same time you want to go quiet..

Why don't you just go stock exhaust?
