  I think you need to clarify just what sound you're trying to reduce.  
The injectors themselves don't make much of a sound, certainly not 
that can be heard above any of numerous noises on ANY engine. 
  If you have an intake "rattle" noise, that is usually from loose clips 
holding the air filter cover to the housing/intake depending on if it's 
a NA or TD setup.
