August 23, 2013

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.

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.

July 19, 2013

One of the first Whipple Superchargers came through the STILLEN Performance Shop recently. With our newly signed agreement, STILLEN is now the only recognized and warranty certified installer in the Southern California area for all Whipple Superchargers. We were excited to get right to it and install one of these amazing pieces of machinery on a 2011 Chevy Camaro SS Convertible.

The Camaro SS has been a regular in the shop as of late, but this is one of the first convertibles. Although this was a fairly stock automatic L99 and already on a lower power range compared to it’s 6-speed LS3 brother, we were still hoping to see a significant power increase once the Whipple Supercharger was bolted on.

Whipple Supercharger Twin Screw Technology

With the latest technology, the all new Whipple supercharger system creates more power than any other positive displacement forced induction system on the market and is 100% complete and designed for stock engines, but also has enough capability to work with heaviest of modified engines

Putting the newly installed Whipple Supercharger on the dyno, we had some of the highest numbers we have ever seen come out of the L99 – 483.75 HP and 448.52 TQ! That’s an increase of 146 HP and 112 TQ over the stock motor.

Customer Spotlight: Alden’s 2011 Maxima SV Sport

July 17, 2013

When a car is just done right, there’s that jolt that seems to travel directly from your eyeballs to your brain when you see it, causing you to mouth the word ‘whoa…’

STILLEN 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Nissan Maxima Body Kit White Lip Spoiler Side Skirts Rear Corners

Such is the case with STILLEN customer Alden Arneson and his 2011 Nissan Maxima SV Sport, taking advantage of almost every product STILLEN manufactures for the 7th Generation Maxima and showcasing what a cleanly modified Max can achieve to be.. and he’s not done yet!  Alden worked closely with our dealer Revision Audio near his hometown in Hawaii to make his dream a reality.

Alden’s Maxima takes everything into account.. Full STILLEN polyurethane body kit, performance products including a cold-air intake and stainless catback exhaust system, suspension system featuring coilovers, sway bar and braces, and what most people seem to forget when building a high performance vehicle, a complete AP Racing big brake upgrade by STILLEN.

Maxima Modification List

 

We asked Alden about his build, why he chose the Maxima, and what he has planned next, and here’s his thoughts:

I became interested in the maxima after I had seen the new body style.  I loved how aggressive it looked.  After I took it for a test drive, I was sold.  At first, I told my self that I wasn’t going to mod this car.  I previously owned a fully built Mitsubishi Galant.  I was always into building something different.  Needless to say, I got bored.  I decided that I would just drop the car and be done with it.

 

Well, then came the rims.  The addiction had started again.  I began to look around for parts.  I knew that STILLEN had been making Nissan parts for a long time.  To my amazement, I found a whole bunch of parts for the Maxima.  I knew that I had to have everything that was out there for this car.  Fast forward about a year and the project is still going.  My future plans include a full air bag suspension setup from AirRunner systems.  A full custom audio setup is also in the works currently.

 

Just want to thank STILLEN for making awesome parts.  I hope there are more in the works.  I also wanna give a shout out to Revision Audio.  They have pretty much built my car from the bottom up.  Special thanks to Samson Mak, Derek Katayama, and Todd Oya for all of your help.
