I know two things:
(1) There are no wires in the walls that would interfere with the blow-in nor is there any fire-blocking (I watched the house bring built)
(2) Building codes require a minimum of 5/8” drywall, taped and mudded, on walls and ceiling in all attached garages to retard the spread of any possible fire. Thus your use of plywood would not be in compliance with current building codes unless your garage is detached. But, you’re free to do what you want.

My starting point is to get some estimates from insulation contractors. Depending on the cost, I was exploring possible DIY approaches.
