Sound damping replace or leave out.

I have recently removed the sound damping as in the stuff that is actually stuck to the floor on my spider so i could see if there was any of that nasty rust stuff lurking about and to also replace it with some more efficient deadening material but i have to admit i cannot hear that much difference without the damping or the carpet at the moment.
In total i have removed 5 kilo of deadening material alone from the floor pan area
Now I'm not building a race car but 5 kilo is 5 bags of sugar and thats seems a lot to me.
Do i replace it or not ?

If you can't tell the difference with the roof up.. then bin it .. it's only a water trap..

Well decided it was going back in the end with some extra areas being dealt with.
It's really interesting how much resonance I am removing each day when I add more deadener I really didn't think there was any difference so so wrong.
