Megan Lyda for ShockerRacingGirls with the Atlanta Custom Wraps C7 Z06As an official model for Atlanta Custom Wraps, Megan Lyda has been given the daunting task of posing with the ACW C7 Z06 Corvette for a photoshoot by D. Felix Photography.  In the background, you have one of the most striking C7 Corvette's in the country.  Wrapped in Atlanta Custom Wraps blue with just the right amount of black accents.  The Vette features an RK Sport Rear Diffuser, GS Creations clear marker lights and Vettestetics halo head lights.  This Z06 sports "OVRK1LL" on the Georgia license plate, not just because of its wild appearance but because of the 1100+ horsepower without the Nitrous Express direct port kit!  In front of the Vette, you have Megan Lyda.  Meg is a gorgeous 5'4" tall blonde from North Carolina that can bang gears in her 2005 Roush Stage 2 Mustang.  This battle is too close for us to call, so we will let you decide...

The ACW Z06 started off with an LMR Stage 2 Build including a custom cam, LMR balancer pulley, American Racing long tube headers, LMR breather, MSD Wires, full Corsa exhaust, Flex Fuel system and a fuel pump upgrade.  It quickly became clear that the factory blower was maxed out at 754 rear wheel horsepower.  While 754 horsepower to the wheels is definitely impressive, it wasn't going to cut it for Project OverKill.  ACW then partnered with Nitrous Express to help this project live up to its name.  With the help of a NX Throttle Body plate kit with dual bottles they were able to be the first C7 Z06 Corvette to crack the 1000 rwhp mark!

Being the first to 1000 horsepower still wasn't enough for ACW and OVRK1LL, they decided to take the car to SEMA 2015 and wanted to take the build even further.  They brought in their friend Tim Lynch of Lynch Mob Racing partnered with Procharger and Nitrous Express to get them to the next level.  A Procharger F-1R blower was installed along with a custom direct port Meth Injection system along with a Direct Port Nitrous Fogger from NX.  ACW tells us they are keeping the exact power numbers on the DL for now, but the Z is making over 1100 horsepower with 24lbs of boost and without the spray.  The NX Fogger setup is plumbed for 400hp on top of that!  They finished everything off with an RPS Twin Disk Carbon Clutch and a set of 18" Mickey Thompson tires on Custom Forgeline Wheels.  ACW has a track rented out at the end of the month for some private testing so keep an eye out for the results and final numbers coming soon!

Now back to more about 22 year old Megan Lyda.  Megan, or "Megs_Roush" as she's know on Instagram, tells us that ever since she was a little girl she has wanted a Mustang.  "They were what grabbed my attention, and I knew I wanted one," says Megan, "I'm not sure how that happened considering my entire family are Chevy fanatics."  She owned three different cars before she could finally afford to buy her Roush, but she worked her way up to finally owning a Stang.  Her Roush was previously owned by her boyfriend who sold it to her when her picked up a supercharged 2013 5.0 Mustang.
