For over 25 years STILLEN has been recognized as a leader in Nissan/Infiniti tuning. With a history of setting “first time” milestones in the aftermarket for these great vehicles, STILLEN has established themselves as the company to follow when it comes to Nissan and Infiniti product development. STILLEN was the first company to develop the HICAS eliminator system for the 300ZX Z32 platform. When the Z33 350Z was introduced, STILLEN was once again the leader with the first forced induction solution, as well as the first to offer CARB legality, and AGAIN the first with a 3-year/36,000 mile engine warranty.
Well, STILLEN has done it again as Team STILLEN is proud to announce the CARB approval of the Nissan 370Z (Z34) G37 Supercharger Kit.
STILLEN has not only been the first company to achieve CARB legality of a forced induction solution on the VQ37, we have also been the first company to achieve such an accomplishment while tuning through Nissan’s sophisticated ECU with larger injectors. This is a major accomplishment for Team STILLEN and one that will join the many other first time landmarks STILLEN has achieved in the Nissan/Infiniti tuning world.
CARB (California Air Resources Board) is the division of the California state government that controls all aspects of air quality and standards. With standards getting stricter it is getting more and more difficult to achieve CARB legality. CARB is recognized as the toughest emissions control in the country and is therefore recognized in all 50 states as an emissions standard for all performance parts. If a performance part achieves CARB legality, it is recognized as 50-state legal.
The power the STILLEN Supercharger system delivers is dramatic, taking the factory 3.7L V6 from 332hp to over 500hp! The system is designed to work with both automatic and 6-speed vehicles, including convertible and AWD models.
The STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger features a new cast aluminum intake manifold engineered specifically for this kit, complete air-to-water intercooler system, and boost is derived from a Vortech V-3 Supercharger unit. The V-3 features a quiet V-belt design, and a self-contained oiling system for easy maintenance.
In the past year STILLEN has shipped supercharger systems around the world. Fantastic reviews and reports are coming in from:
- New Zealand
- Unite Arab Emirates
- Hong Kong
- United Kingdom
Not to mention all of the kits that have been installed with great success across the United States at Nissan/Infiniti dealerships and performance shops. This is a bolt-on system, capable of being installed by any qualified ASE-certified automotive performance shop, or at hundreds of Nissan and Infiniti dealerships across the country, or right here at STILLEN at our in-house install facility.
Once again, STILLEN has successfully accomplished all of its goals with another great forced induction solution for the Nissan/Infiniti vehicles.

- Vortech V-3 Centrifugal Supercharger Unit

STILLEN is proud to announce the availability of the VQ37 supplemental warranty for the STILLEN 500HP Supercharger System!
The VQ37 Supercharger supplemental warranty program is available as a 3-year/36,000 total mile term (whichever occurs first), with liability coverage of up to $8,000. This coverage warrants engine components (including the STILLEN Supercharger), transmission and rear axle components. The supplemental warranty is valid in the United States and Canada, has a $0 deductible, and is available for $395.
One of the biggest concerns we hear from our customers is the worry of voiding their warranty with the use of aftermarket parts, and we’ve outlined some information in previous posts regarding this subject, and with the combination of an engine/drivetrain warranty, can give solid piece of mind.
For more information, please contact your STILLEN representative at 866-250-5542.

Recently we lauched the press release and information regarding the STILLEN 3.7L Supercharger for the Nissan 370Z and Infiniti G37, along with some video of track testing and data logging as we put the supercharger through it’s paces in a demanding environment.
Our testing doesn’t stop there. Steve Millen personally has been putting thousands of miles on the STILLEN 370Z in all types of environments, altitudes, deserts, long trips through surrounding states, and earlier this week spent some time in the snow and cold for some cold weather endurance testing, including freezing temperatures, cold starts below freezing, etc. Read more

In the last update post we showed the new Intake Manifold and discussed the function of the Air-to-Water Intercooler System. Heres some more details on the design of the Intake Manifold and the engineering behind the STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger System.
As you can see we have relocated the throttle bodies to one side of the intake manifold. There are several reasons for this: Read more

After the decision was made to go with the Vortech Centrifugal Supercharger, work began on developing the kit. The engineers spent hours under the hood of our project G37 Coupe taking measurements, test fitting parts, and checking the tight clearances to see where they could put all of the necessary components. The new VQ37 has a very unique and challenging dual throttle body intake design. The STILLEN engineers have had great success with making big power off this design and a perfect example of that are the Generation 3 Intakes which offer up to 18 horsepower! However, the supercharger was going to require some creative thinking and once again, the engineers have pulled it off!
Here are some pictures of the STILLEN-designed intake manifold done with our 3D CAD software, and some of the new aluminum castings just received before final machining: Read more

STILLEN is proud to announce we are nearing completion for the Nissan 370Z / Infiniti G37 Supercharger System. As we approach production, we will be updating the progress as frequently as possible on our blog. We’ll start with the concept, and some insight into the development process.
This 3.7L supercharger development began in late 2008 and moved steadily through 2009. We had a bit of a delay in the development while the STILLEN R35 GT-R was prepared for Targa Newfoundland, but after that car was completed it was back to business on the supercharger! We have just started the new year in 2010 and we are excited to say the supercharger is nearly finished! Here is a re-cap on our development and some of the engineering that went into making this kit come to life! Read more
