Chevrolet Corvette Powertrain: Performance Starting on the Plant Floor

Editor’s Note: We are honored to share an article submitted to CorvetteBlogger.com from Eric Nordling, Product Engineer at the GM Tonawanda Engine Plant and Bob Widmer, Production Launch Operations Manager, GM’s Toledo Transmission plant. Eric and Bob shares with us some of the high-tech machinery that helps to build the Corvette Stingray’s LT1 V8 engine in Tonawanda, NY and the eight-speed automatic transmission manufactured in Toledo, OH.


Since the original Small Block V8 engine was introduced in 1955, the Chevrolet Corvette has been famous for uncompromising power under its hood. But while Corvette drivers can see and appreciate the technology and innovation under their hoods, what very few people get to see is the advanced infrastructure and devotion to quality at all costs that goes into building the Corvette’s powertrain. Through seven generations of America’s most iconic sports car, General Motors engineers and workers have continually refined the state of the art in the manufacturing and assembly plants that build and test the Corvette’s engine and transmission, constantly finding new ways to make the Corvette more powerful, reliable and efficient.

2014 Corvette Stingrays Recalled for Misaligned Fuel Fill Pipe

Chevrolet issued another recall notice in February pertaining to the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The recall affects certain Corvette Stingrays that may have been built with an out-of-position “anti-siphon” grid within the fuel fill pipe. That grid may move over time and become located from slightly deeper in the fuel fill pipe to totally dislodged from the pipe and move to the bottom of the fuel tank.

Dealers are instructed to replace the fuel tank fill pipe and if necessary, inspect the fuel tank for the dislodged anti-siphon grid.

That’s because of the havoc being created by winter storm Octavia that has already dumped more than 6 inches of snow from Missouri to Kentucky, forcing General Motors to shut down the second shift at the Corvette Assembly Plant on Monday night and both shifts on Tuesday. (Maintenance crews were told to report for their regular shifts, however.)
