Since 1953, the Chevrolet Corvette has been a true American Classic. Old or new, it’s always a treat to have a Vette in the STILLEN Performance Shop, especially for a Corvette supercharger install on top of the LS1 V8.
Magnuson Corvette Supercharger Install
With the Corvette supercharger installed, the Hybrid-roots supercharger produces 6 lbs of boost and delivers performance power while retaining reliability and drivablity.
Magnuson Superchargers comes with a 3-year / 36k mile warranty on supercharger hardware and a 1-year limited warranty on electronics.
After the 2001 Chevy Corvette supercharger install, a new RK Sport fiberglass hood was put in place to cover it and Dual Stainless Steel Magnaflow Exhaust installed for increased flow.
RK Sport Corvette Supercharger Fiberglass Hood
In addition to the Corvette supercharger install, a new hood is required to clear the blower. We opted for the RK Sport RK5 fiberglass hood, not only for clearance, but for the sleek, aggressive look it adds to the front of the car.
The RK Sport RK5 Fiberglass Hood for the supercharged Corvette comes raw and ready for prep and paint.
Magnaflow Corvette Exhaust System
The Corvette Magnaflow exhaust is a bolt on application constructed from mandrel-bent, stainless steel tubing. The stainless steel Magnaflow Performance mufflers and polished rear exhaust tips generate a smooth, pleasing, deep tone.
The Corvette Magnaflow exhaust system carries a limited lifetime warranty and has been dyno tested and proven for performance gains in horsepower and torque. It is a perfect add-on after the Magnuson Corvette Supercharger install.
The Supercharged Corvette is now off to have the hood painted, but will be back soon for the Corvette dyno tune.

A customer recently picked up an Eibach Pro-kit for his 2010 Mazda 6 and sent over a few before and after pictures from his Do-it-yourself Eibach Springs install. The Mazda 6 lowering springs from Eibach are roughly a 1.25″ drop and come with a million mile warranty.
Eibach Pro-kit – Mazda 6 Lowering Springs
Like all Eibach Pro-kits, The Mazda 6 lowering springs are a progressive spring design that makes for excellent ride quality while offering high performance handling… not to mention the better looking lower stance.
According to the customer, the Eibach Pro-kit Mazda 6 lowering springs were a fairly simple do-it-yourself install and went on in just a few hours. He also attached some comparison photos of the Mazda 6 stock springs vs. the Mazda 6 lowering springs.
Eibach Pro-kit Mazda 6 lowering springs are available for both the 2.5L 4 Cyl and 3.7L V6 models.
- Eibach Pro-kit Mazda 6 lowering springs – 2.5L 4 Cyl

The automatic L99 arrived at the STILLEN Performance Shop with a Camaro SS Magnaflow Cat-back exhaust system already installed. We quickly put it on the dyno to get some base numbers before the Camaro dyno tune. Numbers came back at roughly 345HP and 348TQ, a slight increase over a bone stock L99.
Cold Air Inductions – Camaro Cold Air Intake Kit
Along with a few other exhaust modifications, we added a Cold Air Inductions intake kit (#CAI501109910). These US made Camaro intake kits are ceramic coated inside and outside of the tube, and also include a thermal insulated air box to keep the incoming air as cool as possible. Cold Air Induction also specifically designs and engineers their own air filters to maximize performance.
Camaro Dyno Tune

With the Ford GT Rally 8 coming up in September in Northern California, we have started to see a few of these supercars trickle into the STILLEN Performance Shop. We are equipped to do everything from routine maintenance to high performance upgrades. STILLEN also manufactures and sells numerous performance parts for the GT.
We replaced all fluids, the oil pump and belt in this black beast, along with a mount and balance of some fresh new Bridgestone tires.
An upgraded Ford Racing supercharger pulley went into this blue striped machine. By simply installing the smaller supercharger pulley and a re-flash of the ECU, you can see power increases of up to 100HP!
