I replaced my falling apart fiberboard with the abs. The new one
doesn't come with sound deadening material, but I was able to use the
material on the fiberboard one. I used a staple gun to attach it, and
then pliers to bend over the staple ends. It fit quite good.
The abs thing was different though, I had to drill new holes at the end
of the tunnel where it connects to the firewall, the original holes on
the abs didn't line up.
All in all though, I'm happier with the abs, as opposed to glorified
cardboard. Wouldn't have replaced it though, just to replace it.
