Elite Engineering Corvette C6, 1/4" Aluminum Tunnel Plate w/Thermal Abs
I just had installed today in my XLR-V, the Elite Engineering Corvette C6, 1/4" Aluminum Tunnel Plate w/Thermal Abs ($298 shipped).
It is a direct replacement for the 1/8" thick OEM aluminum tunnel plate that comes with our XLR-V's and probably the XLR's as well.
So far what I have noticed is a more solid & damped chassis that allows the suspension to work more effectively.
The console temperature seems cooler, the cabin quieter and the ride and drive is more enjoyable.
You may want to consider this if-
•You want reduced interior and console temperatures
•You want improved handling
•Reduction of chassis flex (increases life span of expensive components which become adversely affected during high performance driving)
•Less interior noise
•Less interior heat
•You want reduced creaks and squeaks
