Maybe nothing.

Out here In the western mountains even on long drives I find inclines can require some shifting around to keep the power in the necessary band. Makes you work a little harder. In some cases this can happen over hours, not minutes.

I have the Exmoor matting in mine and it helps immensely, still a bit loud though. There is a lot going on. Not to say I don't have a whine or two associated with drivetrain and not the actual engine.
