Slow things down a little so fans won't hurt themselves trying to take it in all at once. They'll probably thank you for your mercy. May we suggest Corvette underhood dress up parts from RPI Designs? That gorgeous LT2 under the back glass is a logical place to start the eye candy appreciation tour.
Engine Bay Details
One way to set off the pure jaw-dropping beauty of that big V8 is by enhancing the surrounding details in the engine bay. RPI Designs has carbon fiber coil covers from Nowicki, fuse covers in painted steel and stainless, master cylinder covers and throttle body covers.
We've got sensor boxes, the surge tank, alternator and other engine components in stainless or carbon fiber. You could also go painted to match or contrast with the body. Transform the very nature of the engine compartment.
Suddenly it’s no longer just a backdrop - some drab box just doing its job. Morph that space into a living, breathing environment, more obvious as the life support system it actually is. Details matter when you want a professional, finished appearance and the engine bay has lots of details.
Custom Fuel Rail Engine Covers
One of the coolest ways to set off the appearance of the C8 Corvette engine is by changing the look of the fuel delivery rails. There are lots of different looks you can go here. The proximity of the fuel rails on either side of that huge plenum cover provides unlimited opportunities for visual combinations using the Corvette underhood dress up parts from RPI Designs.
Borla carbon fiber rail covers are gorgeously understated and provide a great contrast to the complexity of this powerplant by imposing order with their long, slender outlines running down either bank of the engine.
Laser-cut stainless steel fuel rail covers from American Car Craft take the opposite approach by standing out from the background, loudly proclaiming the high-performance nature of the precision machine to which they are mounted.
Intake Plenum Covers
The single biggest piece in the C8 engine bay beside the engine is the huge cover on the intake plenum. This is a piece that’s just screaming for customization. This one item can completely transform the entire personality of your C8 Corvette engine compartment.
We’ve got pieces that are similar to the original part with minor, subtle differences. Other parts by LG Motorsports, APR Performance and Nowicki designs have completely different shapes and details to create a mind-blowing transformation under the back glass.
RPI Designs offers a wide selection of plenum covers in painted finishes to match or contrast with the body color. We carry others in stainless steel, composite and carbon fiber. Add to the high-tech carbon fiber look with our stainless steel plenum overlays that mount over carbon fiber plenum covers, giving a high technology aerospace vibe to your engine bay.
American Car Craft has a plenum cover made from stainless steel that’s perforated, precision laser cut and incorporates a carbon fiber center plate that reduces weight and adds rigidity to the plenum cover. This piece produces an absolutely stunning effect on the C8 engine compartment.
We also carry painted plenum covers that are just like the original but with different finishes. These pieces are stronger than stock, smooth and glossy with OEM-spec official GM colors from PPG and DuPont to perfectly match the original body color of your car.
