  • That's the plan, but no news yet, 370Z / G37 first.. RT @tsui_san: Burning question for VQ35HR owners – will the G37 supercharger fit?? #
  • I'll have to check.. what does the butt dyno tell you? RT @kaipodiesel: @STILLEN how much horsepower does the intake make? #
  • Nice! Doing the install yourself? Should be no big deal if you have basic tools.. RT @kaipodiesel: My @STILLEN intake comes in on Monday!! #
  • And the reason the STILLEN supercharged G37 isn't on the dyno.. hail in Southern California.. (video) #
  • First video teaser of STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger System.. as installed on a G37 – #
  • First teaser pic of the STILLEN 370Z / G37 Supercharger.. as installed on a G37 – #
  • Will start the trek to Canada soon! RT @autoshowcanada: The Nissan Stillen GTR will be at the Toronto #Autoshow #

  • Looks clean to me.. Love that color.. :) RT @CexiDeja: Diamond Girl…… NOT at her best @STILLEN #
  • STILLEN Supercharged G37 being driven today! If it stops raining we'll finish the tuning and wrap up the 370Z as well! Videos/pics soon! #
  • Awesome! Let me know what you think.. RT @kaipodiesel: @STILLEN Thank you!! I put in my order for my intake for my truck #
  • 370Z / G37 VQ37 Supercharger Progress: STILLEN Intake Manifold and Intercooler technical details.. #

In the last update post we showed the new Intake Manifold and discussed the function of the Air-to-Water Intercooler System.  Heres some more details on the design of the Intake Manifold and the engineering behind the STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger System.

As you can see we have relocated the throttle bodies to one side of the intake manifold.  There are several reasons for this:

After the decision was made to go with the Vortech Centrifugal Supercharger, work began on developing the kit.  The engineers spent hours under the hood of our project G37 Coupe taking measurements, test fitting parts, and checking the tight clearances to see where they could put all of the necessary components.  The new VQ37 has a very unique and challenging dual throttle body intake design.  The STILLEN engineers have had great success with making big power off this design and a perfect example of that are the Generation 3 Intakes which offer up to 18 horsepower!  However, the supercharger was going to require some creative thinking and once again, the engineers have pulled it off!

Here are some pictures of the STILLEN-designed intake manifold done with our 3D CAD software, and some of the new aluminum castings just received before final machining:
