Yes, for about $22 per metre you can get excellent stuff from Clark Rubber. I bought a big load of it on the advice of Arm79 from these forums, though unfortunately I haven't gotten around to installing it yet. I want to put it everywhere possible. :s5

I bought a ex-police EA car at the damaged car auction, and pulled the shitty brown carpet out of it. Underneith the carpet was a full sized underlay made completely out of 4mm thick rubber fully shaped to fit the EA floor, with sound deadening in places too!! I was stoked.
I've put it in my car now underneith the original carpet... and even though I have a 2.5" straight through exhaust, I can barely hear it.
Of course everyone outside still can, which is good...
Planning on sound deadening the door skins soon as well to cut down on even more noise
Hey jack what was the stuff called?
I work at clark rubber in niddrie on saturdays, i have done my whole car with stuff from work called autonoise barrier which only the niddrie store has it is $21.95 mt and is 1.5 mt wide on a roll. It is cell closed foam and works extremely well i have put it everywhere imaginable in my ea!

There is also another mod you can do to car to take the majority of the road noise.
Clark Rubber sells a noise insulating foam, that is about 5mm thick. It is a very high density foam.
I bought 6 metres of it, and removed all my interior and laid it across the floor, gearbox and shaft tunnel, in all the doors, under the rear bolsters, in the rear of the back seats and under the parcel shelf. I also filled the big cavity on the top of the rear shockers. Also of the road noise comes in from the rear of the car, boot and under the seat etc.
The result is near silence at idle, and cut the road noise in half on the freeway. I still have to cover the floor. I wish I could easily take out the dash and run it under there, as I think it will eliminate most of the engine noise as well.
It was the best $130 I spent on my car so far, and is a worthwhile mod to do if you already have a Falcon, or are looking to buy one.
