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.

The Chevy Camaro SS has been a staple in the STILLEN Performance Shop for a while now and is always welcome for a Camaro LS3 supercharger install. We bolted on a Magnuson Supercharger to the 6.2L V8 motor, but this time with a different look… a Wrinkle Red finish.
Magnuson Camaro LS3 Supercharger Install
You may remember the beautiful Victory Red Camaro SS in the shop back in June, but this Camaro LS3 supercharger install is slightly different, this Magnuson Supercharger has a wrinkle red finish. The wrinkle red Magnuson Supercharger is not as common as the black finished version, in fact, you’ll be hard pressed to find one as we have sold out of this color and is now only available as a special order, but the bright red color gives an aggressive look and style to this black Camaro LS3 engine bay.
The Magnuson Camaro LS3 Supercharger is a hybrid-roots supercharger with OEM-like fitment that does not require any modifications to the hood.
You can rest assured knowing this bolt-on system carries a 3-year / 36,000 mile warranty on supercharger hardware and a 1-year limited warranty on electronics. Magnuson also offers an optional 3-year / 36,000 mile, 5-year / 60,000 mile or 5-year / 100,000 mile powertrain warranty for the Camaro LS3 supercharger at an additional cost. Visit the Magnuson Superchargers website for more warranty information.
Camaro Magnaflow Exhaust Install
A Camaro Magnaflow Exhaust is a perfect companion to any Supercharger install, creating better exhaust airflow as well as a smooth deep tone. The Magnaflow 100% Stainless Steel Cat-back Exhaust System shows dyno proven increases in both horsepower and torque and carries a lifetime warranty.
For more information on the Camaro LS3 Supercharger Install, the Camaro Magnaflow Exhaust Install, or any other aftermarket performance parts for your vehicle, please give us a call at (888) 366-0686 or visit the STILLEN website.

The 2001 Chevy C5 Corvette is back in the shop after the Magnuson Corvette Supercharger install, running strong and with a freshly painted hood. Now it’s time for the Corvette dyno tune to dial in the Supercharged LS1 V8.
Supercharged Corvette Dyno Tune
The California sun was beating down on the fresh black paint and pushing temperatures close to 100 degrees, which isn’t ideal for optimal horsepower gains. Powering through the heat and after a few pulls, the Corvette dyno tune showed increased power to 394HP on the Magnuson supercharged C5!
To schedule a Corvette dyno tune or dyno tuning for any vehicle, please contact the STILLEN Performance Shop in Orange County at (888) 366-0686 or visit the Performance Shop webpage for more information.

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.
For more information on this Corvette supercharger install or any of the products used on the Corvette upgrade, give us a call at (888) 366-0686 or visit www.STILLEN.com.
