[VIDEO] The Corvette Mechanic Paul Koerner on Mating the Tremec DCT to the LT2 V8 Engine


Paul Koerner is a GM World Class Technician working at Key Chevrolet in Middletown, CT and for the past week he has been working on a C8 Corvette with a blown LT2 V8 engine. As Paul has been posting daily updates to his The Corvette Mechanic Facebook page, we thought it would be both fun and educational to follow along as one of the best Corvette techs in the business does a C8 engine swap.

In our last video, Paul had successfully dropped the damaged LT2 V8 from the Sebring Orange Coupe and has since disconnected it from the Tremec dual-clutch transmission.

In today’s video, the replacement powerplant is getting dressed and prepped for its return to the engine bay, but first Paul discusses the mating procedure when reconnecting the DCT to the Corvette’s engine.


After shooting the video, Paul later shows these photos of the assembled powertrain which is now ready for the new wiring harness. He also cleaned up the subframe assembly and will be reinstalling the powertrain back onto the subframe shortly.

  1. When you look at the pictures of the new LT2 crate engine going back into that C8, first thing that comes to my mine is the DCT looks like its 10 yrs old. C8’s have only been out for a little more than a year total. That C8’s been through some rough times. Most C8’s are treated with care and pampered. Just a visual comment from someone that’s had 12 Corvettes over the last 50 yrs. I drive my Corvette most everyday. Love my C7. Love the new C8’s. Best value on the planet for a sport’s car, without exception. And to think that GM is standing behind it’s product and replacing this guys engine. What more to say. Again just a visual comment, I no nothing about the owner or the Corvette’s history.
