    Have added Magnaflo mufflers. Curb sensor. Heat shield under the center console, and wind deflector. Red's getting pretty close to what I have in my mind's eye. Still would like to add backup camera, and upgrade the navigation system (the standard one SUCKS!). After that, maybe a little paint chip repair, and he'll be PERFECT!
    Which way did you go with the heat shield? Did resolved the heat issue? I waiting on my exhaust man to get driveway to his garage paved so we can get it on his lift. I didn't buy a plate yet thinking about Elite Ceramic coated for around $300

    That link is great. If you follow the further info it explains the thermal difference as well there is a link to photos of its installation!

    To My understanding yes it's the same tunnel plate as the C-5 there's been a few on here that have installed a Elite plate may be one will chime in and verify if that's correct.

    Default Heat shield results

    Greytoad and Grand Daddy, here's what I used - 2 of them. Installed to the underside of the tunnel, over the pipes.
    Amazon.com: Heat, Fire & Flame Barrier, Heat Resistant Welding Blanket BURN MAT GOLD - Kelvar Fabric Heat Shield by NAC INDUSTRIAL: Home Improvement

    We took about a 100 mile trip today, and while it didn't keep the console cool, it certainly kept it cooler. Used to be like an radiator. Now, just mildly warm. Still wouldn't work for storing your Snickers or Hershey bar, but doesn't heat up the cabin now. The right side of the leg is cool now - no roasting.

    I don't know about that ceramic shield, but hope this helps answer some questions about my solution.

    Thanks Doug. Sounds like one good solution but I have been reading about the Elite plate and it has other benefits like rigidity etc so I am hoping to find out if that piece will for sure fit my car and although it is a bit pricey it is also supposed to really stop a ton of the heat that is invading my console and the interior of the car. I will keep everyone posted if I find out for sure etc.

    There is a post on here about hot consoles somewhere that someone already installed one these Elite plates, it should be the correct plate because it fits the C-5 frame and and it's the only one I believe that's offered by Elite. I've also seen used old plates on eBay from being switch out. This particular plate is also a little bit thicker and stronger and actually helps stiffen the frame from twisting. And it's Ceramic coated and has a heat shield installed on it too.
