C8 Corvette Stingray Engine Dress Up Kit
American Hydrocarbon’s C8 Corvette Full Engine Bay Dress-up Kit for the Stingray offers Corvette enthusiasts the ability to customize their engine bays with several of American Hydrocarbon’s best-selling products sold as a kit. The 5-piece kit includes a C8 Corvette engine cover, two engine appearance panels, and a pair of matching valve covers, and all five pieces can be customized in a variety of ways.
Users can first select the overall color of the Engine Bay Kit based on the exterior body colors and then further refine their customization selections to include the engine cover lettering choice as well as the colors and logos for the engine appearance panels. There are even more customizations available that include finishing the engine appearance panels in carbon flash metallic or visible carbon.
C8 Engine Appearance Package Trim Panels
We love these C8 Corvette Engine Appearance Trim Panels which we think are a great addition to the C8, especially if you or the original owner of the car elected to forgo Chevy’s OEM Engine Appearance Package which included the visible carbon fiber trim panels.
Customers can choose from a multitude of customization options for the Appearance Panels including American Hydrocarbon’s exclusive hydrocarbon Carbon Fiber finish, Carbon Flash Metallic, or it can be painted in a variety of C8 body colors. Owners can also specify body-color accent stripes and colors for a truly customized look, and because it’s a GM officially licensed product, C8 logo options can be added to panels and they are available at no extra charge.
Customized C8 Corvette Fluid Caps
American Hydrocarbon’s Corvette fluid caps for the C8 are the latest GM officially licensed products. The caps are chrome-plated steel that can be customized with the C8’s exterior body colors or a number of American Hydrocarbon’s exclusive finishes including hydrocarbon visible carbon. The logos on the caps are painted, not decals, and they are covered with five coats of PPG clear coat and then buffed to a show quality shine.
The set of four (4) engine fluid caps includes a Coolant Cap, Washer Cap, Oil Cap, and Brake Fluid Cap which start at $395. You can also customize the 2-cap Washer and Brake Fluid set for the Hard Top Convertible which starts at $205.
Aeromax 1VM Splitter
One way to give your C8 Corvette a more aggressive look is to add the Aeromax 1VM splitter from American Hydrocarbon. Designed and manufactured in the USA, the Aeromax splitter was created to be slightly more aggressive than Chevy’s OEM 3-piece Z51 splitter, but doesn’t go as far as the OEM 5VM splitter with the side winglets. The wingless Aeromax provides your C8 Corvette Stingray with a nice clean look and it’s now a GM officially licensed product.
The amount of customization available is unmatched as customers can select their Aeromax splitter to be finished in visible carbon fiber, carbon flash metallic, or painted body-color to match your C8 Corvette. You can add stripes to the splitter and there is also a number of logo options available ranging from the Stingray R to the Jake mascot from Corvette Racing.
