Default C6 Z06 Cabin air filter?

I saw a thread on the C6 Corvettes and the cabin filter is located behind the Battery in the Engine compartment.
Any body know where its located on the Z06, being the battery is in the trunk. Its also a good reminder to all.( If there is one).
Thanks in advance!

Same location as C6, passenger side upper firewall adjacent canister. Un-snap clip, open hatch and remove filter. Note flow orientation upon removal.

Correct, correct and mine was dirty after 15k

easy to change and best when the car is not hot.

I found this inadvertently, because my cam shook the clips loose. A strong odor tipped me off to check the engine bay!

As stated above, it's in the same spot as a normal C6. It's in plain view, and nothing is in the way.

After 30k miles, I pulled my for inspection and found that it only needed cleaning with a shop vac. I saw no reason to buy a new one. The GM filter appears to be a very gauzy pleated paper thing and fairly substantial in its tolerance for being vacuumed. I would recommend inspection prior to deciding on replacement. It's easily removed from the Z06 firewall.
