  • C8 LT2 Air Induction System

    Of course it all starts with the scoop. Thanks to Program Engineering Manager Josh Holder for giving Chazcron and me the following “explanation tour.”

    Sorry about the quality of these pictures and flow indicators, but still on the road and lacking full tools, e.g., left with the old fingernail pencil.

    Air from the scoop goes into a “sealed chamber” backwards to the air/water/grit separator. The chamber serves a double function of structural support for the right rear fender.

    The separator itself is over 12” inches tall, having a drain at the bottom. Having its 90 degree turn helps in the separation process.

    The “pre-cleaned” air heads toward the motor. First an overview picture, then a close up of the last piece to be installed in the assembly process, the shut.

    After the shut, the air again turns 90 degree and flow forward through the air cleaner (actress for removal and replacement is by quick release pop fasteners located within the trunk liner). The shut is the last item installed in this part of the engine compartment, being the obvious flex coupler between the motor’s vibrations and the solid body structure. IT goes in then pulled sideways each side, then lastly the two attaching bolts secure it in place.

    Then it flows through the intake manifold.

    Once would think the two 90 degree turns would create issues, but it works well and meets/exceeds all initial design parameters.

    Cool and with this corvette I m planning on staying with the stock air intake filter system.

    keeping water out is a major design component of the stock system. Those side intakes are huge.

      One of the GM folks I spoke with said that in order to remove the trunk panel to access the filter you need to first remove the roof latches (4 torx screws each) , then the 4 hooks for the cargo net. Then a bunch of fasteners (16 I think he said) to remove the airbox cover.

        Tadge discussed the air flow during the Saturday morning session. They designed channels into the body structure for air flow and they also serve to funnel the good engine noises, intake and exhaust, back toward the cockpit.

        Jeremy and Keith should have this discussion in their videos.
