Default The C8 Corvette Z06 is Getting a Flat Plane Crank Twin Turbo V8 Engine

The dust has barely settled on the base C8 Corvette Stingray but new leaks have come out and show the C8 Corvette Z06 will in fact be getting a flat plane crank with a twin turbo setup.

We've talked a bunch about the C8 Corvette and it seems the dust hasn't even settled on the official reveal of this car yet but we are now getting information about the C8 Corvette Z06 well before it's possible release date. There is a source at GM that is leaking information and has recently talked about the engine that the Z06 will have. "Everyone thinks it will be a small block, but it won't be," said this source inside of GM. "Listen to the race car."

Interesting about the flat plane crank. All Chevy had to do was buy a Ford 5.2 GT350 engine and study how Ford has been successful with the design for many years. The article makes no mention as to whether along with the flat plane crank will the new engine have dual overhead cams, another feature the Ford 5.0 and 5.2 have had for many years.
