The highly anticipated development of the STILLEN Generation 3 Ultra Long Tube Intake (Part #402847) for the 2009 G37 Sedan is now a reality.  Sedan owners can now benefit from the extensive R&D done with the 3.7L motor here at STILLEN.

STILLEN G37 Sedan Gen 3 Intake System

Over 50 variations of this intake were used in the development on the 3.7L Coupe to get the largest gains possible.  Gains on the G37 Sedan are 14hp and 10 lb/ft at the wheels. (Dyno below.)

The Generation 3 Intake System has a mild sound when cruising around, and an aggressive, undeniably powerful note when put under throttle.

Pricing and information can be found on the STILLEN Gen 3 Intake product page HERE.  These are in stock and shipping.

More information and a video (for approximate reference on sound) is available on the G37 Coupe Gen 3 Intake Blog post HERE.

STILLEN is proud to release the final piece of the 2008-2009 Nissan Altima Coupe Body Kit, with the introduction of the urethane Altima Coupe Rear Corners Rear Corners.

STILLEN Altima Coupe Rear Corners

We just got the painted pieces back and immediately installed them on our test mule, and as you can see with the additional pictures below, the transformation is complete.

As with all STILLEN body components, these Altima Coupe Rear Corners are constructed from high quality extremely durable urethane, and are ready to be prepped and painted to match.

These rear corners are a perfect compliment to the STILLEN Side Skirts, and flow nicely with either the STILLEN Full Fascia or Lip Spoiler.

A complete list of body styling available for the Altima Coupe:

First, we’d like to thank all those who came out to STILLEN on 11/18 to see the new 2009 Nissan 370Z.  The car definitely got a workout with everyone climbing in, out and all over checking everything out and pushing every button.

Special thanks also goes to Nissan for making this vehicle available to us before the LA Auto Show this weekend. Below is some of the photos from the day, as well as some quick videos of the car.

And for those of you who asked (almost all).. the “weird black thing” in the center of the rear valance is the spot for the mandatory European fog light, but isn’t necessary for the U.S. so it’s simply blacked out.

EDIT:  Here are some interesting spec sheets and 350Z vs. 370Z comparison numbers we created for the mini-event.

Well, the rally has been over for about a week and a half now.  I have returned home from the 2008 SEMA show and I have finally been able to sit down and breathe a little bit.  I’ve watched the videos that you will soon be seeing.  I have sorted through all of the pictures which will be making their way on to the blogs soon.  And, most importantly, I have thought about the week’s event.

For this years SEMA Show, we were asked by Infiniti to build a G37 Coupe to take to their booth at SEMA, and we jumped on board.  This year Infiniti had their own area at SEMA, and we were proud to bring a shining example of their flagship coupe for display.


We quickly got the 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe into the urethane modeling shop and developed the Lip Spoiler for use with the Sport Model front fascia.  As always, components are build our of durable urethane, for OEM fitment and quality.

From there we worked on a rendering, including a 3-tone paint scheme utilizing some BASF R-M Carizzma paint to create a charcoal top with a red stripe on the factory silver paint.

While in the modeling shop we also created our signature Roof Wing, as well as a rear deck wing that covers the chrome strip and follows the contours of the vehicle.

Combined with the suspension goodies reknown from the R&D department at STILLEN, and some new performance items just released (like the STILLEN Generation 3 Ultra Long Tube Intake Kit), not only does this G37 Coupe look good, but it’s ready to hit the track.  Build sheet and products list below.  Look for more photos and studio shots soon.

After wrapping up the final details with the STILLEN 2009 Maxima we showed you earlier, we hustled it onto a transporter last week for delivery to Las Vegas and the 2008 SEMA Show (click HERE for Autoblog’s coverage of the show).
