Same as our Tunnel Reinforcement plate, but with a composite fiberglass thermal barrier. The results are impressive! You get the best of both worlds: stiffening and heat shielding.
Since its release, the Tunnel Reinforcement Plate has been one of the hottest suspension mods for the C6 Corvette. It has been proven over and over again to reduce the amount of torsional flex in the chassis.
Our plates are CAD designed and computer precision cut from 6061-T6 aluminum, and our 1/4" thick plate is two times the thickness of the stock OEM plate! The benefits of this added thickness is a much more rigid and stiffer tunnel plate, therefore reducing the amount of flex in the chassis and improving the overall functionality of the C6 suspension. Our plate is also Ceramic Coated to reduce the amount of heat transfer from the exhaust into the interior console. Although the C6 does not experience the same amount of heat transfer as the C5, some heat is still present.
The engineers at General Motors acknowledged the benefits of a stiffer more rigid tunnel plate and improved their original design and incorporated something similar into the new C6.
