We have finished final production on the new STILLEN Stainless 370Z Cat-Back Exhaust System, and wanted to share the pictures, video sound clip and dyno sheets with you.
The 370Z is responding excellent to power modifications, and our heritage with tuning the Z car has allowed us to squeeze an additional 18whp from this upgrade. See below for the pictures and video. Read more

One of the first stages of gutting a race car is to check your starting weights. We loaded it with a full tank of gas to see how much the car weighed, and well, as expected the GT-R is no Georges St. Pierre. Godzilla is a very fitting name for this car as it weighed in at a whopping 3,900 pounds full of fuel.
When building a race car the ultimate goal is to achieve the best power to weight ratio possible. Over the next few days we will be stripping our GT-R down and weighing all of the components that come out of it. We will be weighing the doors, fenders, hood, trunk and everything else to see what we can do to lighten up those parts of the car as well. Read more

I drive a 2004 G35 Coupe, and after upgrading to 20″ wheels and installing an Eibach Pro-Kit and STILLEN Sway Bars, the resulting issue with camber on the front and rear was evident immediately, and I quickly realized that despite the fresh new rubber smell of the BFGoodrich’s I had just installed, these tires would be short-lived if I didn’t look for a camber solution ASAP.

STILLEN is announcing plans to compete in the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Competition Tarmac Rally being held from September 12-19, 2009. This is a 6-day 1,400 mile paved road rally through the winding roads of Newfoundland.
With Targa Newfoundland fast approaching, STILLEN has begun preparation on the 2009 Nissan GT-R rally car. For the past 7 years Steve Millen has made the annual trip to New Zealand to compete in the Dunlop Targa Rally with a Ford vehicle.
2009 marks the first time in 14 years that Steve Millen and Nissan will head back to the races together. With multiple world championships, race wins, and world records together this will be a tough team to beat. Read more

A few years ago the DOT (Department of Transportation) cracked down on all of the replacement light manufacturers due to their non-compliance. After that a few companies have risen up and shown themselves to be of superior quality.
Because of the history of poor fitting, sealing, and cracking problems I have seen over the years I was skeptical about the overall performance and quality of aftermarket lights. Recently we started working with a headlight manufacturer known as Anzo and they were confident that I would be nothing less than impressed.
We figured we’d put them to the test… Read more
