STILLEN is proud to announce the opening of Beshoff Infiniti in San Jose, California.  STILLEN has long had good working relationships with dealers, and we’re proud to have Beshoff in the STILLEN family.

Beshoff Infiniti San Jose - Carries STILLEN Products

Beshoff Infiniti in San Jose, CA

Beshoff’s gorgeous new facility is a premier full service dealership offering many automotive products and services, including STILLEN performance parts for the Infiniti line.

Some aren’t aware that a lot of STILLEN products are sold and installed by dealerships, and it’s not uncommon for dealerships to outfit a new Infiniti with product as it’s sold, or after the purchase of a vehicle. Beshoff would be happy to accommodate you.  It can also be nice to amortize those add-ons into the loan of the car.

If you’re in the San Jose area, we’d encourage you to drop by Beshoff for a cup of gourmet coffee and take a tour of their facility.  Let them know STILLEN sent you, and get a chance to see the STILLEN performance items in person.


Beshoff Infiniti is located at 2198 Tully Road in San Jose, CLICK HERE for a map, or give them a call at (888) 653-9064.

Continuing with the performance success of the STILLEN Generation 3 Intake System for the 3.7L engines in the G37 Coupe and G37 Sedan, STILLEN is proud to release the Gen 3 Intake for the Dual Throttle Body G35 Sedan.

STILLEN G35 Sedan Gen 3 Ultra Long Intake

When developing these intakes, we’ve seen the highest gains after 7-8 dyno runs. This intake was installed on a customer vehicle, so we limited testing to 3 runs.  During this testing, gains are up just over 15hp to the wheels (dyno below) at high RPM’s, 12hp peak, and may increase slightly.

Sound is mild during normal driving, but spirited under acceleration, especially over 5,500 RPM.  These intakes are in stock and shipping.  Pricing and additional information available HERE.

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 our line of high performance STILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulleys for popular Nissan/Infiniti applications.  OEM steel pulleys, especially crank pulleys, can be quite heavy, robbing horsepower.

Upgrading these pulleys to a STILLEN 6061 Aluminum set reduces rotating mass, allowing for easier and quicker revving of the engine, resulting in increased performance.

In the case of underdrive applications, the reduced outside diameter of the pulley allows for the accessories to run slower, freeing up additional horsepower from the drivetrain, and putting that recovered power to the wheels.

STILLEN has a long heritage of machining precision pulleys for our supercharger kits, and used that expertise to create pulleys with a bold new design.  Weight savings is dramatic, up to 80% lighter than stock and up to 10% lighter than other aftermarket pulleys. We have seen power gains of up to 10+ HP at the wheels.

SSTILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulley Features:

  • 6061 Aerospace Grade Billet Aluminum
  • Bold New Design Maximizing Performance, Strength and Minimum Weight
  • 304 Stainless Steel Sleeves for Main Seal Contact Points For Durability
  • Stock Timing Marks Maintained – Keyways are Precision Broached
  • CNC Turned, Milled and Balanced from CAD Designs
  • Underdrive Applications – 20% Approximate Underdrive

More applications of the STILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulleys are currently in R&D and will be released soon!

STILLEN and AP Racing are proud to announce the release of upgraded Curved Vane Front and Rear Brake Rotors for the R35 Nissan GT-R.  These AP Racing R35 GT-R Brake Rotor are a track-proven upgrade to the OE Brembo components.

STILLEN AP Racing Nissan GT-R R35 Upgraded Curved Vane Brake Rotors

The STILLEN / AP Racing Curved Vane Rotors utilize a curved-vane core (48 vanes) which allow for better thermal management, providing improved cooling over the OE pillar vane design.  They also have 12 curved slots which improve pad bite and not prone to cracking under severe use, which the OE rotors are plagued by.

The need for these rotors became evident quickly when GT-R owners in the UK began touring various race tracks, and having issues with standard discs only lasting 2-3 track days at the maximum.  AP Racing was contacted, and within a couple of weeks rotors were available and testing began.

Results were all positive, with no signs of cracking, and consistency of pedal and performance were reported.

Highlights from the STILLEN R35 GT-R Brake Rotor Product Page:

  • Top quality, proprietary iron alloy with multi-stage thermal processing.
  • Curved-vane core (48 vanes) for better thermal management under extreme use. More expensive to make, but improved cooling over the OE pillar vane design.
  • 12 curved slots (not drilled!) to improve pad bite and resist cracking under severe use.
  • Precisely balanced at high RPM for smooth operation at any vehicle speed.
  • Friction faces finished on the latest generation twin-turning equipment, better DTV (Disc Thickness Variation) and less runout than typical double-disc grinding machines.
  • Includes fresh hardware for track-day confidence every day.
  • Added bonus: Even priced less than the standard OE discs!
