Steve Millen and the R&D crew here at STILLEN are at full throttle wrapping up the build of the STILLEN GT-R, and Road & Track has been continuing their great video coverage of the build and testing.

The STILLEN Hi-Flow Intake System for the Nissan Cube features bolt-on installation, removes the factory baffling and creating a direct intake air path.

On Saturday we opened up the parking lot and the doors to STILLEN as a place for guys at NICO to come down and throw a BBQ meet.  We were really impressed at the number of attendees, and the quality of the vehicles that showed up!

This was also the first time anyone has seen (and heard!) the STILLEN GT-R in a public setting, and the build is getting much closer to being finished in preparation for the upcoming Targa Newfoundland Rally in September.

Road & Track Magazine has practically been living at STILLEN documenting the build on the STILLEN GT-R.  We’re in the final stages of the build, with the BASF paint recently finished, Password:JDM dry carbon goodies, suspension, AP Racing carbon ceramic brakes and final installation beginning, including track testing in preparation for the 2009 Targa Newfoundland Rally.

Road & Track have released three new videos, one covering the GT-R in the paint booth, one highlighting the ultra lightweight Password:JDM dry carbon parts and some other upgrades, and the most recent with Steve Millen discussing the current suspension upgrades being done to the car.
