Engine compartment soundproofing

99 boxster 986

the soundproofing insulation around the engine compartment is falling off and it is brittle.

Is there an alternate product anyone can recommend? also a technique for removing the original soundproofing?

the engine is out of the car.

thank you. tom

As for removing the old stuff, other than just picking at it, I don't have any technique in mind.

I would try leaving it off since you are in Minnisota.
