  • LT2 Video Tour By GM Corvette Master Technician Paul Koerner

    Thanks to Paul, an outstanding Corvette Tech, as evidenced by NCM/GM hiring Paul Koerner (and Brittany George) to teach powertrain and diagnostic help sessions at the Bash and at the Labor Day Anniversary Celebrations, we have this video walk around of the LT2. Thank you for sharing it with us CorvetteBlogger.

    [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.

          John, how difficult do you think removing the plastic engine cover be? I like the red engine cover but it being a dealer accessory, I was thinking to paint it red with high temperature paint.

            Four bolts and a rubber like push pin in the front and another push pin in the back. I think according to the typical 1-5 scale, this is a # 1, easy for a first timer.

            If you are wanting to exactly match Torch Red, Long Beach Red or any other color, as I am going to do for mine, go to www.g2usa.com and click on custom colors, then provide your paint code. I have done this twice and the paint was not only easy to use (just as always follow the directions carefully especially painting in the temp range specified), get a better brush than comes with the kit), and as the paint is self-leveling and forgiving, and after watching several YouTube videos, it is again a # 1. Their paints are certified to 974 F — so far above anything our engines will remotely get to. Some have suggested regular 575 F engine paint, but matching the exactly color that route is not possible to the best of my knowledge.

              Thank you John!! I have decided to go with Blade silver. I will try to match it to the red calipers. Do you know if there are color codes for bright or edge red?

                The bright red calipers were designed to go with Torch Red (color code GKZ, touch-up code WA-9075) and the edge red calipers to go with Long Beach Red Metallic (color code G1E, touch-up code WA-405Y) so using those codes should work match pretty well.
