The AutoTecknic Dry Carbon Cooling Plate will provide the Honda S2000 AP1 and AP2 with better air induction, providing the intake and engine with cooler air during high-speed driving; some customers have even reported better gas mileage and power gains.

Dry carbon fiber's name comes from its manufacturing process. Dry carbon fiber is formed by using a "pre-preg" or impregnated piece of carbon materials. This piece of carbon is first placed into a mold and then into a sealed vacuum (autoclave) to properly cure. This method creates the least amount of waste and forms a lighter version of carbon than the “wet” method. The autoclave vacuuming process of making dry carbon means fewer pinholes and virtually no air pockets in the carbon. Dry carbon is the highest-quality version of carbon fiber products that are produced.

This cooling plate is functional, and the aesthetics of carbon fiber will also improve the overall appearance of the S2000 engine bay.
