Our friends from Lloydminster Nissan are one of the dealerships that we are proud to have in the STILLEN dealership network. Recently, they put together a project Titan with the results being a truly spectacular looking truck. They sent over a few shots for us to take a look at.
The Lloydminster Nissan team started out by adding a STILLEN Dual Exhaust and Cold Air Intake which not only helps gain H.P., but also improves the airflow efficiency in and out of the vehicle. Making the finest performance parts for Nissan cars and trucks has become an obsession for our staff for over 25 years here at STILLEN. We take a huge amount pride in the quality and craftsmanship we put into each and every product that ships out of our facility, and stand firmly behind every one of them. One of the biggest compliments and testaments to the quality of our products is when a dealership like Llodyminster Nissan not only sells our products in their showroom, but also makes it a point to run our products on their own dealership vehicles.
Next, they took on what to do with the wheels and tires and we think they have hit it out of the park with a set of Hostile Knuckles 20 x 9 wheels, and Goodyear Silent Armour 275 60R20 Tires.
Just to make sure other vehicles can see the truck coming… and going past them, they added Xtasy Halo black headlights and smoke taillights as well as a Rigid “E” Series 20” light bar.
Finally, a PRG Products 1.5” leveling kit was added to balance out the factory ride in addition to installing a Sprint Booster which aims to overcome throttle response delay for ECT-equipped vehicles, providing crisp on-tap acceleration at the driver’s disposal. We think they have put one incredible looking truck together.
As you can see, the folks over at Lloydminster Nissan are really getting creative with their vehicles and are doing a great job of utilizing all of the assets they have at their disposal. If you are in the area, stop by and see what they’ve come up with for their latest creation and see what they can do for you.
Lloydminster Nissan is located at 5115 25 St., Lloydminster, AB T9V 3G2. Sales: 1 (888) 273-4071

Since STILLEN signed the agreement with Whipple Superchargers to become the only recognized and warranty certified installer in the Southern California area, the STILLEN Performance Shop has been booked solid installing these beauties. The dominant car has definitely been the Chevrolet Camaro, but the latest installation was on this absolutely gorgeous Ford F150 6.2 Liter SVT Raptor.
To say we were excited to get right into the Ford Raptor supercharger install would be a huge understatement, the whole office was buzzing and taking bets (no money was exchanged- just bragging rights) on how much h.p. this beast would pull on the Dyno after the install.
We’ve had plenty of trucks come through the doors here to get work done, but this was the first Raptor, and a heavily modified one at that with a full RPG suspension, cat-back exhaust, LED lights, winch, 37’s, etc.
With the latest technology, the all new Whipple supercharger kit creates more power than any other superchargers on the market and is 100% complete and designed for stock engines, but also has enough capability to work with the heaviest of modified engines. With this in mind, we were expecting the Whipple to add about 25% extra horsepower at the wheel to this truck’s already impressive resume!
After the Ford Raptor Supercharger Install
On the baseline run on the Dyno the truck pulled 360 h.p. at the wheel. After the install, we mounted it up again and this time the results were drastically different!!! The truck laid down 502 h.p., an almost 40% increase.
To say our customer was happy after the Ford Raptor supercharger install would be an understatement…..he was over the moon!!! He knew in an instant he had made the right choice on not only the Supercharger, but also on the highly skilled team of technicians at STILLEN to get it installed correctly!! Click on the video below to see second Dyno pull and check out the results.

When you have your supercharger kit installed by the STILLEN Performance Shop you can be rest assured that your vehicle will be eligible for coverage under the Whipple Supercharger 3-year/36,000 mile, 5-year/60,000 mile or even the 5-year/100,000 mile warranty options!

If you live in the Plano, Texas area, and you’re in the market for an Infiniti luxury vehicle, you owe it to yourself to stop by and visit Crest Infiniti. Not only do the guys at Crest Infiniti carry the best cars in the performance luxury vehicle segment, they also understand what it’s like to be enthusiastic about those cars. These guys know performance! When the new Infiniti Q50 came out, they immediately saw that what they had was an opportunity to build to the awesome platform that Infiniti had given them, and take it to another level with appropriate, but distinctive modifications.
The Infiniti Q50 is already a great looking car. Right out of the gate it’s one of if not the most exciting car in its category. From the factory it has incredible styling that is aggressive, yet refined with a strong fascia accentuated by the large grill, menacing headlights and wide stance. Yet somehow, at the same time, the car retains a sense of elegance and class. Not only did Infiniti install their fantastic VQ37 3.7 liter V6 engine producing 328 horsepower between the frame rails, but they took it a step further and actually made hybrids exciting! The hybrid model comes with the tried and true VQ35 3.5 liter V6 and when mated to the state of the art hybrid technology, the car is rated at 360 horsepower! Who thought we’d live in a world where hybrids were exciting!!!
When the team at Crest Infiniti got a hold of this car they knew they had to do something special and do something to take it even further than Infiniti had already managed to. When a car is this new, it can be a challenge to accomplish that, as it takes a while for everyone else to keep up. Fortunately, we were able to support the designers at Crest Infiniti with the STILLEN Infiniti Q50 cat-back exhaust. Once the exhaust was completed the car received a matte black wrap along with a set of Vossen CV5S wheels to round out the build.
Where to Find the Infiniti Q50 with STILLEN Cat-Back Exhaust
Crest Infiniti has been a trusted STILLEN dealer since 2005 and continues to impress us with each of their project vehicles! If you have any questions about this car, be sure to contact the Crest Infiniti dealership in Plano, Texas for more information. Additionally, if you live in the McKinney, TX area and are looking to customize your car or truck, be sure to contact Whiteside Customs. They did a fabulous job on this Q50! Finally, if you have any questions about the STILLEN performance parts that were used, please be sure to contact us at www.stillen.com or by calling 866-250-5542.

Ford Fusion Front Lip Spoiler
The second-generation Ford Fusion has some aggressive styling from the factory, but for the true enthusiast, STILLEN has developed a Front Lip Spoiler and Roof Wing to take that styling to the next level.
Both the STILLEN Fusion Front Lip Spoiler and Roof Wing are made from durable polyurethane, a flexible material also used in OE applications, and are designed and manufactured here in Costa Mesa, California at the STILLEN compound. STILLEN has been producing body kits in-house for over 20 years, and customers have long enjoyed the benefits of polyurethane over the inferior fiberglass parts others push into the marketplace.
The Ford Fusion Lip Spoiler comes ready to prep and paint, just like any other body part, and comes pre-installed with genuine 3M Automotive Foam Trim Tape and hardware, ready to be paint matched (or anything custom you want to do!) and installed on the car.
Ford Fusion Roof Wing
The Ford Fusion Roof Wing is an item STILLEN has been known for and extreme detail was taken with the Ford Fusion to integrate the roof with with the present 3rd brake light. The Fusion Roof Wing is also made from polyurethane, and like the Lip Spoiler is easily painted to match the vehicle, or do anything custom you can dream up. Installation is a breeze, as 3M Automotive Foam Trim Tape is pre-applied to the part, ready to adhere to the rear window glass for an easy installation.
All STILLEN polyurethane body components feature a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects, and guaranteed against breakage or cracking in normal use for as long as the customer owns the vehicle.
Give the STILLEN team a call today at (866) 250-5542 for your Ford Fusion body kit components, these are shipping now!
