One of the more popular products we make for the Nissan GT-R has been the polyurethane Protective Skid Plate, and with the changes to the new 2012 GT-R’s front lip, this required a new skid plate to be designed. Proud to announce we are in final development of the new version for the new model!
Here’s a sneak peek inside the STILLEN modeling shop located in Costa Mesa, CA, and shows the final piece test fitted on the car before we sent it into mold preparation. The final production part will be black urethane, sprayed with a black matte paint, and can also easily be painted to match any specific color if desired. Read more

Goodridge has released information on their new limited edition Phantom Gstop Brakeline kits available for popular selected applications. For the ultimate brake line upgrade, look no further!
Upgraded stainless steel brake lines are one of the easiest modifications to make and get tangible results from. Installing Goodridge G-Stop SS lines will dramatically improve brake pedal feel, eliminate the soft spongy feeling, and improve braking performance and reducing stopping distances.
The Phantom G-Stop kits take that performance and kick it up a notch, utilizing stainless hose ends, banjos and bolts, as well as feature black poly-coating to the stainless steel hoses. Even the brackets and hardware are protective coated, creating a superior appearance, and ensuring durability. Read more

During the product development process at STILLEN, our designers and engineers come together to make products that marry form and function to create durable parts that enhance your cars looks and performance. Here’s a sneak peek at how we make body kits and body components for cars like the 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe.

It’s bound to happen, you pull into that parking stall in a hurry, clipping the parking block and hearing that dreaded grinding noise.. Or seeing that impossibly sharp driveway, gripping the wheel tighter as you slowly creep over it, hoping the front won’t get damaged too much as you hear the scraping happening and you’ve already committed..
STILLEN has developed a protective skid plate made from urethane to combat this exact problem. This piece is designed to conform to the bottom side of the front fascia, and protect against scraping and bumps. It’s designed to be sacrificial, and made from durable urethane that can stand the abuse, leaving your factory bumper free from mishaps. Read more

The STILLEN / Vortech V-3 series supercharger is unique in that it uses a self-lubricating oil. This means there is no need for running additional oil lines, or tapping the oil pan. All of those inconveniences (and future leaks) from previous versions are a thing of the past.
The V-3 utliizes a very simple stainless braided hose that is designed to hang down near the shassis of the car. Oil changes are made easy by simply removing the drain bolt, and refilling to the specified level. Please follow these guidelines in servicing your supercharger unit. DO NOT OVERFILL!
