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.

The Nissan Titan has a lot of strengths, but as countless owners know, one of them is not the factory OEM radiator. It’s combination of aluminum and plastic end tanks do one thing really well, and that is crack, dumping all of the engine coolant, leaving you helpless and stranded. Getting towed to the dealership, paying upwards of $600 for a new radiator and you’re on your way right? Until it happens again, the plastic end tanks cracking and emptying the cooling system on the ground below.
STILLEN has long been the solution to the failing Nissan Titan radiators for years, designing and having CSF Radiators produce an all-aluminum 2-row performance radiator, which has been a lifesaver for Titan owners stuck replacing their radiators over and over again. And we’ve improved things once again!
Meet the STILLEN Nissan Titan 3-Row All-Aluminum Performance Radiator
In 2013 STILLEN has has redesigned a brand new drop-in replacement radiator for the 2004-2013 Nissan Titan, Armada and QX56. This new radiator features a 3-row thick core, and holds twice as much coolant as the factory radiators! The construction is all-aluminum, and designed to improve reliability, airflow, total cooling and also comes with an internal transmission oil cooler just like the OE unit. The STILLEN Radiator is designed to be an easy installation, with drop-in fitment like the factory unit, and features a 2-year warranty.
Even with all of these improvements for the 2013 version, we were able to keep the price identical to the 2-row version!

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.
