[VIDEO] The Corvette Mechanic Paul Koerner Gives A Tour of the C8 Corvette's LT2 V8 Engine

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.

  1. Great review Paul ! One question…does the c8 lt2 have port and direct fuel injection systems or just direct injection ?

    Thanks in advance and your seminars and videos are awesome!


  2. Also lots of forum guys want to know how does that beauty cover come off engine…does it pop off like earlier generation corvettes or is it bolted on? If so how long would it take to remove the manifold beauty cover…(some guys want to know if they have the ability to spray a different custom color with high temp paint that possibly gm doesnt offer..

    Is it a big deal to remove ? Whats your guess.

    Hope you dont mind we were curious how its removed..

  3. Very neat insight. I am curious about a couple things, so anyone please chime in!:

    1. In addition to the primary heat exchangers aft of the doors, I have noticed what are very obviously radiators up front. Are these supplementary radiators for the LT2 or are these for gearbox cooling?

    2. I wonder what that aftermarket groups are pondering with what is very obviously a compact install. Superchargers & intercoolers anyone??
