350Z

Most people immeditately associate STILLEN with everything Nissan, while we do pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of the name plate that was the corner stone of our founder Steve Millen’s racing career. We also, pride ourselves in our knowledge of just about every other make and model as well. We treat every car that comes into our performance center with extreme care and respect. From routine oil changes, to motor swaps, to brake jobs, there is never a corner cut or a shortcut taken in the work we do for our customer vehicles.  We are glad to see that word of this commitment to quality is spreading faster than ever,  a quick snapshot of the vehicles in our Performance Center today further illustrates this.

This customer is blending the line between street and track with an amazing suspension set up and a front and rear set of AP RACING brakes for his Subaru WRX STI

A different customer brought in his 2012 Chevrolet Camaro to get a Cat-back exhaust system installed in order to unleash the power and the sounds of his 6.2L  L99 Camaro SS.

We have a beautiful Nismo 350z in the corner of our shop getting a tune up and a Stage 3 Supercharger installed.

On our alignment rack we have a 2011 GT-R getting some angle dialed into it’s suspension in order to make it handle even better on the street and track.

 

If you happen to own a specialty vehicle and feel it deserves to get the respect and attention you put into it by a PROFESSIONAL mechanic. Please don’t hesitate to give us a ring. 1-866-250-5542 One of our specialists will gladly set up and appointment for you and make sure your ride gets the attention it deserves.

 

Street Legal 350Z Supercharger

STILLEN is proud to announce the availability of the 2007-2008 350Z supercharger kit for the dual throttle body VQ35HR.

This supercharger system took over a year to develop and involves revolutionary designs to offer customers easy upgradability and installation. With this supercharger system, power is boosted to 450 horsepower (or 375whp).

Air to water intercooler: By redesigning the intake manifold we were able to incorporate the intercooler inside the manifold, thus allowing us to cool the air charge immediately before the air enters the engine. Additionally, the front mounted heat exchanger does not block the airflow supplying cool air to other vital coolers such as the radiator, engine oil cooler, transmission cooler, power steering cooler or the A/C condenser. Because water is 4 times more efficient at dissipating heat than air, we are able to utilize a more compact heat exchanger to cool the water.

** Individual results will vary based on the baseline of the stock engine, type of dynamometer used, temperature, elevation, fuel and various other factors.

When developing these intakes, we’ve seen the highest gains after 7-8 dyno runs.  During our testing, gains were up at 20hp to the wheels (dyno after the jump)!

Unfortunately with the first go around on the sale of the STILLEN Supercharged 350Z, the winning bidder on eBay was not able to complete the transaction.. so we’ve decided to relist this car for another round.

STILLEN is excited to announce the availability of select AP Racing brake systems in a limited-edition caliper color – Competition Gray.

STILLEN AP Racing Competition Gray Big Brake Kit

Racing fans will notice this color is exactly what full-blown race calipers from AP Racing look like. But unlike the race-only hardware, these are built for every day use with secondary dust seals, anti-rattle clips and extra corrosion protection. Finally – the best of both worlds with no compromises!

As top dog in Formula 1 (634 wins!), NASCAR (2008 championship in Sprint Cup and Camping World Series), World Rally Championship (WRC), LeMans prototypes, Super GT, World Touring Car Championship, Moto GP and more, no other brake equipment company has done more to help drivers win than AP Racing. Don’t be fooled by lesser imitators as this is the genuine article.

That is why you will find AP Racing road car brakes as original equipment on cars made by Bugatti, Koenigsegg, Lotus, McLaren, Aston Martin, Holden HSV, Noble, Rossion, Ultima, Caparo, Ascari, Tramontana, Spyker, Pagani, Morgan, Farbio, Seat, Zolfe, Gumpert, Caterham and other limited, high-end exotic supercars. They could have any brakes in the world and chose AP Racing. So can you.

And, as you will notice in the detailed pictures below, the front 6-piston calipers are the first ones to arrive with the latest in improvements

  1. Relocation of bridge bolts: Experience gained by Radi-Cal racing caliper development is leading to stiffness improvements across many caliper models. This change improves the dynamic stiffness of the CP7040 caliper considerably.
  2. Now using external TORX-head bridge bolts: These highly engineered bolts allow better and more consistent torque when assembling calipers.
  3. Revised caliper face: AP Racing redesigned the face of the caliper for a more up-to-date look along with some weight reduction. In COMPETITION GRAY, they look awesome!

Interesting note for you Top Gear fans.. AP Racing are the factory brakes for the top 6 of 10 fastest cars on the Top Gear Lap Chart:

  1. Gumpert Apollo (AP Racing)
  2. Ascari A10 (AP Racing)
  3. Koenigsegg CCX (AP Racing)
  4. Pagani Zonda F (AP Racing)
  5. Caterham R500 (AP Racing)
  6. Bugatti Veyron (AP Racing)
  7. Maserati MC12 (Brembo)
  8. Ferrari Enzo (Ferrari / Brembo)
  9. Ariel Atom (Alcon)
  10. Lamborghini LP560 (Brembo)

And if Top Gear hadn’t refused to test the Ultima GTR.. they might have found as much as 4 seconds quicker on the same track, again with the help of a full AP Racing setup.

STILLEN is proud to release our line of high performance STILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulleys for popular Nissan/Infiniti applications.  OEM steel pulleys, especially crank pulleys, can be quite heavy, robbing horsepower.

Upgrading these pulleys to a STILLEN 6061 Aluminum set reduces rotating mass, allowing for easier and quicker revving of the engine, resulting in increased performance.

In the case of underdrive applications, the reduced outside diameter of the pulley allows for the accessories to run slower, freeing up additional horsepower from the drivetrain, and putting that recovered power to the wheels.

STILLEN has a long heritage of machining precision pulleys for our supercharger kits, and used that expertise to create pulleys with a bold new design.  Weight savings is dramatic, up to 80% lighter than stock and up to 10% lighter than other aftermarket pulleys. We have seen power gains of up to 10+ HP at the wheels.

SSTILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulley Features:

  • 6061 Aerospace Grade Billet Aluminum
  • Bold New Design Maximizing Performance, Strength and Minimum Weight
  • 304 Stainless Steel Sleeves for Main Seal Contact Points For Durability
  • Stock Timing Marks Maintained – Keyways are Precision Broached
  • CNC Turned, Milled and Balanced from CAD Designs
  • Underdrive Applications – 20% Approximate Underdrive

More applications of the STILLEN Lightweight Standard / Underdrive Pulleys are currently in R&D and will be released soon!

STILLEN is proud to introduce our VQ35 Oil Pan Upgrade. This extra capacity oil pan for the 350Z, G35 Coupe and G35 Sedan is a simple, effective way to ensure your VQ35 has an ample supply of oil.

VQ35 Oil Pan Upgrade

This complete VQ35 Oil Pan Upgrade Kit contains:

  • Extra Capacity VQ35 Oil Pan (350Z, G35 Sedan, G35 Coupe)
  • Oil Pickup Spacer (350Z, G35 Sedan, G35 Coupe)
  • Replacement Hardware
  • One Tube of Permatex Ultra Blue RTV
  • Detailed Installation Instructions

Here’s the product text from the STILLEN website:

Oil supply and temperature are critical when putting your VQ35DE engine through its paces. If your oil pickup becomes uncovered or your temperatures rise too high, catastrophic engine failure is just around the corner.

STILLEN’s Oil Pan Upgrade ensures that your Z or G has an ample supply of oil. This upgrade allows for an additional quart of oil. The extra capacity will allow your VQ to run cooler and more efficiently. Our design expands into the available space below the engine, while keeping the pan within the protective confines of the chassis.

STILLEN’s aluminum pan has cooling fins cast into it allowing heat to dissipate more effectively. An extension is provided for the oil pump pickup and new hardware is provided to attach everything to the engine. This simple, effective upgrade can be completed with normal hand tools. Complete instructions are provided.

Combine the STILLEN Oil Pan Upgrade with our STILLEN Oil Cooler for the 350Z and G35, and you now have a state of the art complete cooling solution for your oil system that keeps your VQ35DE’s oil temp under control.

Not for dual throttle body motors.
