ACS Composite C8 Corvette 5VM Style Front Splitter | PN 50-4-026

Our first Midengine Corvette front lip splitter is one of the easiest splitters to install on the market. The ACS C8 Corvette 5VM Front Splitter in Carbon Flash Black is a one-piece design that requires no drilling or any modification to your Corvette or the part. Just like the OEM C8 front splitter!

Whether you drive a Z51 Stingray or a non-Z51 Stingray, you can install the 5VM Style Splitter on your C8. We utilize the OEM screws that are underneath the front bumper of your C8. The series of screws will hold the 5VM splitter in place ensuring an OEM hold. This means it's a fully reversible mod, and you can remove and re-install the splitter whenever you like! It can be done in 4 easy steps!

Installing a C8 Corvette Splitter in 4 EASY steps

  1. Remove 21 front bumper lower screws. Z51 owners will remove existing splitter.
  2. Position the ACS-5VM Splitter and secure with five of the previously removed screws.
  3. Align the splitter, and tighten the five screws.
  4. Insert and tighten the remaining 16 screws to 22lb"

Easier said than done right? That's why we also filmed us doing the install on one of our C8 Corvette's. Watch the video below:


One look at your C8 Corvette's front bumper and you realize something is missing. Next to another midengine corvette with a front lip spoiler you can see the difference immediately! A front splitter enhances and complements the styling cues of the aggressive front clip of the Corvette

The ACS C8 5VM Style Front Bumper Splitter is a Corvette owner favorite. Designed to match the original GM visible Carbon Fiber LPO 5VM splitter, the sharp edges are key design features that match the sharp lines on the nose of the C8. Additionally, it features the signature side winglets, which help direct air towards the massive front brakes. We carried these design elements over the our splitter.

How it's made

We improved upon this design by choosing a different manufacturing method and material, which translates to a stronger and more durable splitter over its Carbon Fiber counterpart

It is made in PC Composite, which is a manufacturing technique generally reserved for high volume production runs due to its expensive tooling investment. The result is a black molded part with extreme resistance to heat and scraping capabilities. Ideal for splitter applications.

Since the entire splitter is a black composite, chips and scrapes do not show through as they would on a Carbon Fiber unit, which will typically have a white substrate and are more brittle in comparison. 

Surface finish

The ACS C8 5VM Style Front Splitter is top-coated in a original Carbon Flash Black (CFZ) paint finish. Carbon Flash Black can be identified by the signature silver metallic flake in the paint. Developed and used by GM on the C8 Corvette, this is the ideal surface finish to select for ground effects. It will match all C8 Corvette accent pieces on the Corvette including the front grill, rear diffuser, and more. Carbon Flash Metallic Black is highly recommended by us for any Corvette parts.
