GM World Class Certified Technician Paul Koerner (aka TheCorvetteMechanic) spent some of his downtime this weekend reviewing various aspects of the C8 Corvette. One particular video that caught our attention was his virtual tour of the 495-hp LT2 V8 engine that will power the next-generation Corvette.
Paul pulls up one of the official Chevy Media images of the new naturally-aspirated powerplant and using a screwdriver as his pointer, he takes us through the various elements of the engine and explains the design and functions in a way that only he can.
In the video’s comments, Paul is asked about the location of the accessories on the engine and how that may help with long term servicing of the car. Paul replies and says, “I think serviceability will be more difficult due to packaging constraints, however seeing it in the car frame will tell me alot more”.
That’s a question we’ve been hearing a lot of lately and hopefully we get some clearer answers when we see the Corvette engineering team at Corvettes at Carlisle later this month.
When not working one of the major Corvette shows, Paul can be found in the service department at Key Chevrolet in Middletown, CT.
