Deadened the drumming from the exhaust.

In addition i put a layer of the dodomat which is heat and fire resistant on the bulkhead.

Made a difference in my 2002 car, but made no difference on my 2001 car, so i think you are just going to have to try it and see.
its good advise David - I still think the biggest wins is in the cabin area i.e. the doors he doesn't really want to do - but it isn't such a horrid job really, and well worth it, as it is the lowest hanging fruit. I've never bothered with my boot, as the stock sound deadening is pretty comprehensive, and the sound insulation in the carpet in the boot is pretty good too
