cover story this month is centers around a very unique C7. Shawn Brown
hails from the great state of Texas. They do everything big in Texas
and Shawn's C7 fits that bill. Very shortly after acquiring
2014 Arctic White Corvette Shawn began his quest for both power and
Stingray started life as a very well equipped representative of the
seventh generation Corvette. It came from the factory with
the Z51 performance goodies and a top of the line 3LT equipment
took possession of his new toy in the Spring of 2014. This was Shawn's
first Vette and he wasted very little time in bringing it up to his
very high performance standards. Shortly after driving his C7 Shawn was
bitten hard by the "Mod Bug". Stock was and never has been Shawn's
thing so he brought the car to 21st Century Muscle cars in Addison,
started off with a 800 horse package that included a host of
performances upgrades. The package delivered 800 horses and 700 lbs/ft
of torque. We call that a very nice start. The package includes;•
Custom A&A supercharger• Front mount inter cooler• Drive system
upgrades • Stage 2 Cylinder heads• 21CMC Custom VVT Camshaft• Dual
valve springs w. TI retainers• Phaser limiting kit• Harmonic balancer•
Lingenfelter 160 thermostat• AFE Cold Air Intake• T-304 Stainless steel
1 7/8" long tube headers• 3" collector & x-pipe• Hi flow
converters To add some icing to the
cake Shawn added a nitrous system and meth injection.
the power department was straightened out Shawn focused his attention
on the the looks of his new super car. Cosmetic mods include blacked
out Corvette emblems, carbon fiber engine covers, side skirts and front
splitter. An exhaust filler panel and some LED accents were placed in
the side vents and around the engine bay.
further customized the car with a spectacular black widow spider theme
that was air brushed on the hood. Shawn told us "who wants to be a
normal right". The fabulous art work was done by Ande air custom
airbrushing. They also painted the hood-liner and NOS bottles.
and one of his friends decided to enter the car in the Modball rally
that takes place in Los Angeles. In an effort to save the paint from
the courses flying rock chips Shawn had the car wrapped by Car wrap
city in Dallas.
The created an outrageous spider themed vinyl masterpiece.
The look was
exactly what Shawn was striving for. In Texas they have a saying," go
big or go home".
