Installation Instructions

  • Mega Block™ comes with a peel and stick backing. To install Mega Block™, simply peel and stick!
  • Install locations:
    • Hood - cover entire lid with foil facing the engine
    • Firewall - engine side
    • For rear-engine design layouts, apply to the vehicle's back wall.


Common Product Uses

  • Always face foil side of the product towards the heat source
  • Easy to apply with our peel & stick adhesive backing. You need to apply enough pressure for your fingers to "feel" the adhesive bonding to the metal surface.
  • Install at least 2” from the heat source. We recommend foil insulation tape on the edges to protect the foam.
  • Used in non-automotive locations as well, like generator boxes or a soundproof server rack
