We currently offer (3) different variations of plates to fit every
1. 1/4" Thick Aluminum
2. 3/8" Thick
3. 10 Gauge (0.134") Thick Stainless Steel
This PLATE Option Does NOT include the Thermal-Abs Heat
All of our plates are coated with a specially engineered
ceramic coating to
help reduce heat transfer into the console area.
Type 304 SS, for those that feel the need to have the mechanical properties
of Stainless Steel material. Coated on all sides with a specially
engineered ceramic coated and then bonded to a
composite-fiberglass thermal barrier.
Elite Engineering's undercarriage tunnel plate for C5 and C6 Corvettes was
designed with strength and performance in mind. CAD designed and computer
precision cut, the 10 ga. (0.134") thick Stainless Steel Abs-of-Aluminum. The
benefits of this added thickness is a much more rigid and stiff tunnel plate,
which reduces the amount of flex in the chassis and improves the overall
functionality of the Corvette suspension. Concerned with Center Console Heat?
With the new "Thermal Abs" option, temperatures across the C5 Tunnel Plate can
be dropped as much as 98 degrees, and as much as 54 degrees on the C6 when
compared to the stock, OEM plate. .
