  • Engine Appearance Package Pictures and Currently Known Information

    We have seen a lot of engine appearance package pictures, and some preliminary information. Let’s in this thread collect high quality information and pictures.

    The “Engine Appearance Package” is option code ZZ3, is available in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trim options. The engine package consists of two good-sized pieces of visible carbon fiber and LED lighting.

    Please note that ZZ3 is separate from the different standard black color engine cover and the additional engine cover options of Edge Red, red, and silver. The Edge Red and the silver engine covers are delayed availability (per the Accessory Book).

    Here, thanks and credit to Johnl91498 are the first two outstanding pictures of ZZ3’s visible carbon fiber, followed by two similarly superb pictures thanks and credit to Clint Simone of Motor1.

    So, so beautiful. I'm definitely springing for that option.

      If somebody has the opportunity, it would be cool to get a shot at dusk / early evening to show how the LEDs light up the engine compartment.

        Does anyone know if the "standard" engine compartment has plastic covers where the CF is shown on the "appearance" package, or is it uncovered aluminum? I like the CF, but wonder what the standard engine compartment looks like.

          I would like to know this also, and how the lights work, are they on a switch, are they on when ignition is on, or just when headlights are on?

            GM Rep told me when I was looking at the Tour car that the LED lights come on when you open the hatch, as well as it's on a switch.

                  If it is a black plastic cover, in lieu of the carbon fiber, I will probably remove it and see the aluminum braces.

                    I’m of the opinion that the “red” cover will clash with what appears to be “edge red” valve covers. I will hopefully be able to see the red cover before it’s time to place my order.

                    My ‘18 GS has a set from Show Stopper and they are fantastic! I may opt to wait to see what they offer on the C8.

                      Maybe those stock pieces could be hydro dipped in cf?

                        JDMIlw et all, that is my exact question, already # 9 on my NCM 25th “”Questions Ask” list — for I too am wondering about that. I will find Kirk Bennion or Brett Golliff at the event and ask that specific one (for you, for all and for me personally — I hate it when two reds clash).

                        Showstopper is excellent. I have some of their products on my C7; already talked with Steve and know I will be buying some more of their products for my C8.

                          The pieces themselves seem to be a triangle shape overall and the attachment points seem to be on the aluminum braces. IF the stock setup is a plastic cover, I may have to rethink that as the big area with the vents may be covering some things that aren't so pretty. I can't very well cut off the brace section as it's the attachment points. Hmmmmmmm

                            The first mod that's happening to mine is the red valve covers are coming off and being powder coated blue. Wish they would've given us a couple for color options in this area.

                              I get the structual integrity of carbon Fiber, what I do not get is the visual excitement of this product. It is like machined turned metal swirls of yesterday. Sometimes used in dashes and firewalls. I get it , it is a hard product to manufacture and costly. Though the cost is often described or referred to in weight. I did once figure , by weight, if all the panels of a Corvette were made out of Carbon fiber, if it could be done, it really would not add more than a few thousand dollars to the cost of a car. If it could be done, or could it.
