Everyone wants their late model Corvette to be the hottest car on the road…..but hot should mean cool, not sweltering! You may find it hard to stay cool while driving your C5 or C6 Corvette – high temperatures in the center console area have always been an issue. The heat you’re feeling is from the exhaust system, radiating up through the driveline tunnel. But we’ve got good news – there is an easy fix!
Replace the factory close out panel with a new Elite Engineering Tunnel Plate and you can expect a noticable difference! C5 owners will enjoy an estimated 90+ degree drop in temperature under the center console and C6 Corvette owners can expect about 60+ degree drop of the same. The new tunnel plate is a 1/4 inch aluminum plate verses the factory stamped steel plate in a C5 Corvette or the 1/8 aluminum plate used on all factory C6 Corvettes. The Elite Engineering plate has a ceramic coating on all sides and composite fiberglass thermal material on the underside to prevent unwanted heat from radiating up through the console.
These plates are valuable Corvette Parts that both stiffen your Corvette’s chassis and provide a substantial drop of interior temperature, making your daily driving even more enjoyable. Installation takes about an hour so you can get back on the road – cooler and more comfortable.
