It’s that time of year again.. thousands are burning up the 30+ miles worth of carpeted aisles at the infamous SEMA Show in Las Vegas! The STILLEN Team is no exception, with a big booth introducing the world to the new AP Racing Radi-CAL line of calipers used in the STILLEN-engineered Big Brake Kits.
These new Radi-CAL road calipers get there heritage from the racing Radi-CAL high performance calipers launched in motorsports in 2007, which have been dominating the likes of F1, F3, NASCAR and countless others. This new caliper design features a 2-piece aluminum body with H-structure, and a non-symmetrical design developed to have a large reduction in mass yet improved resistance to braking torque. Another benefit is increased caliper cooling surface without decreasing structural rigidity.
STILLEN has developed applications for many popular setups, which are listed below, and have plans to continue to grow the line.
- Nissan 350 big brake kit
- Nissan 370Z brake kit
- Infiniti G35 brake upgrade
- Infiniti G37 performance brake upgrade
- Audi A4 brake kit
- Audi A5 BBK
- Audi S4 big brake kit
- Audi S5 performance brake kit
- BMW 3 series E9x brake kits
- BMW M3 applications
- Chevy Corvette applications
- Chevy Camaro big brake kit
- Ford Mustang brake kit
We will be releasing much more information as we return from SEMA, and the response has already been overwhelming at it’s introduction!
When nothing but the best will do, serious customers look to AP Racing and STILLEN.

Due to popular demand, we have now manufactured a Maxima Rear Diffuser to complete the existing STILLEN Maxima Body Kit. Constructed from polyurethane, this Maxima Rear Diffuser finishes out the kit perfectly and is a great stand alone piece as well. The rear diffuser is available in raw urethane or painted matte black.
Maxima Rear Diffuser – Polyurethane Construction
Constructed from polyurethane, STILLEN body components are designed and manufactured in-house in our Southern California facility. Unlike fiberglass, polyurethane body components provide an OEM like fitment for a clean seamless look. Polyurethane is a more pliable material and is less likely to chip or crack.
The Maxima Rear Diffuser fits seamlessly with our complete Maxima Body Kit, but also adds an aggressive race look when installed on it’s own. Below are photo examples of different variations and other customizations for the Maxima Rear Diffuser.
Maxima Rear Diffuser – Installed
Custom Maxima Rear Diffusers – Customer Vehicles
A few customers have already taken it upon themselves to customize their Maxima Rear Diffusers. Check out what they have done.
STILLEN Maxima Rear Diffuser Custom Painted White – Installed with Rear Corners
Although the Maxima Rear Diffuser is not a functioning race component, it does add a race inspired look and styling to a rather conservative looking sedan. The Maxima Rear Diffuser is now available now at a special introductory price of $299 raw urethane (Part #: KB127418) and $349 painted matte black (Part #: KB127418MB).

There’s a new way to turn the best-selling truck in the country into an off-road beast of the night, LED light grilles. Industry front runner and American produced developer T-Rex has just released their Torch Series LED light grilles for the F-150 series vehicles from ’09-’13.

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.
