Blown ZO6 Hyper Vette
Channell from New Smyrna Beach, Fl. bought his 2007 C6 ZO6 in January
of 2013. With only 260 miles on the odo he began his journey into
"Hyper Vette " territory. The power of a factory stock "Z" car is
intoxicating but Mark a true horsepower addict wanted a lot more. The
insatiable thirst for more power compelled Mark to transform a street
king into the 638 rear wheel horsepower ground pounder it is today.
"Z" is the eight Vette Mark has owned. Mark tells us that he always had
a true passion to own The American Dream. The passion took hold when at
the age of seven he saw his neighbors C3. The body lines and roar of
the sharks engine had Mark hooked.
says that his ZO6 is a keeper and will remain in his possession even if
he purchases another Corvette. The "Z's " extra kick is produced via
the installation of an A&A Supercharger. Other performance
boosters include a Comp Cam 242/248 630/630, with a Trunion upgrade,
OBX Headers,and X-Pipe, and a Dewitt's Radiator. Auto Meter A
Pillar Boost and Fuel Gauges help keep track of the engine spin. A set
Nitto NTO5's mounted on Deviant Wheels put down the extra power.
ZR1 Front Splitter ,rear Spoiler, and side skirts liven up the exterior
and just a touch of interior upgrades pull it all together.
"Z" dyno's out at 638 rwhp and 555.25 of torque on approx 7psi of
Boost. There are more plans in the near future for a McCloud
clutch set up and shaft couplers along with more internal engine work.
target goal of 900 rwhp will keep him busy. Mark has a very
understanding wife and he attributes the cars success to her help
"The only view you will get of Marks car on the street"
applaud both Mark and his wife for their efforts and hope that the
money pit that a hyper build can sometimes turn into does not blur
