  • LT2 6.2L Information

    Thanks to dolfanlon and Steven Bell bringing this to our attention, and to GM Authority for the info itself, we have this latest summary. More a re-statement than any new info, but we are happy to get even re-do’s.

    Originally posted by gmauthority
    The 6.2L LT2 V8 is nearly identical to the 6.2L LT1 V8, which can be found in the current Corvette C7 Stingray and Grand Sport, as well as the Chevrolet Camaro SS and new Camaro LT1. However, the LT2 receives a few minor modifications that enable fitment in the mid-engine configuration of the Corvette C8. What’s more, the LT2 may also feature a few other improvements compared to the LT1.

    GM Authority has heard of but has not been able to corroborate with full degree of certainty updates to the Active Fuel Management system (enabled in the Eco driving mode) and valving improvements that diminish friction, delivering smoother and more efficient operation.

    Other than that, the LT2 will have the same displacement of 6.2 liters (376 ci) as the LT1, along with the same OverHead Valve (OHV), or push-rod configuration. Supporting technologies will include Direct Injection, Variable Valve Timing and Active Fuel Management.

    Mounted in the mid-engine Corvette C8, the LT2 is expected to offer slightly higher output figures than offered by the LT1 in the C7, to the tune of 480 to 500 horsepower.

      I am doubting those numbers myself.

        Good enough for me.

        I also like the idea having at least one major component which is "tried-and-true" and less likely to have first-year glitches.

          Yep, little new in this article. 480 is ridiculously low.

                  LT2? Really? Oh yeah, I said that months ago. I also said 530hp months ago. The numbers in this article are wrong

                      Like I said before I have a tendency to believe what Corvette ate your 911 (C8ur911) has to say. At least it is usually what we want to hear and we are all here for the dream. So Thank You c7ur911 for the sweet dreams I will have tonight.

                        Yea. Right. 480 HP. And the same confidential source proved that the curb weight is 2003 Lbs. And tomorrow it lapped the ring faster than the big V16 Lambo did day after yesterday. They call it the Zoro 2003XX.

                          I'd be content with 480-500. It'll be alot faster then the C7 with the rear bias. I don't want to let my expectations get too high, then end up dissapointed. I have to go base, hopefully vert,with a $75-$80 budget.

                              Yeah I don't think so. 20 hp and 20 lb-ft of torque is all they could come up with in 6 years? They would get that much out of a new intake manifold, new headers, and a shorter exhaust path.

                              That Lopez article contradicts info I've gotten from two other sources - one a public comment by a GM rep and one local. I wouldn't consider either to be 100% but they make more sense than the GMA article.

                              530hp minimum is also what I heard. We'll see soon enough.

                              Edit: one more thing to stir the pot - for those new to the C8 scene who may have missed this. Here is a still from GM's C8 teaser video. This image was nearly subliminal, just a brief flash, and I had to back the video up frame by frame to see it:
