  • C8 Engine speculation

    Hello guys,

    What do you think of the LT2 engine? Will be be OHV based on the LT1 or will it be DOHC?

    I just posted a video covering this and basically bringing new folks up to speed on the C8 and possible announcement dates.

    I try very hard to make high quality videos, so I'd be interested in your feedback and thoughts here.

    Enjoy!

      That 6.2L Cadillac racing engine may influence the C8 "LT2".

        The below thread addresses some of the very detailed enhancements in the latest GM motor, many of which we believe we could well see in the LT2. Of course emotionally, we all want the LT2’s HP number to start with a “5.”

        I join you in wondering if we will however end up in the 490-499 HP range. Even so, with as is pointed out in the video, much ME better traction, and then adding in the DCT, would result in one quick, great handling, really good accelerating Corvette.

        Beyound that, will the Blackwing motor (both its turbo’d and NA versions) be part of the Corvette ME’s Z06+ future, or will its motors be 5.5L based? Inquiring minds are still not sure.

          I agree. It's existing technology that could serve as a good foundation.

            I'm REALLY curious if GM will go with a flat plane crank design. The Sebring video sounds exactly like a Ferrari engine to my ear. But of course, will that make it to production?
