Ford GT

Since it’s been a while since we last checked in with the STILLEN performance shop, we thought it’s time for an update. Our shop techs have been extremely busy with all sorts of cars, trucks & SUVs, but we’ve all been happily surprised by the number of Ford vehicles making their way into the shop to visit us. It seems the STILLEN performance shop is quickly becoming the top Ford Performance Shop in Southern California!

Ford Performance Shop: Raptor Supercharger Installs

Being the only Whipple warranty certified installer in Southern California, our performance shop technicians been extremely busy installing superchargers for American muscle cars and imported sports cars. However, they have been especially busy installing superchargers for various trucks and prerunners. The blue Ford SVT Raptor featured in the photo above, is just one of the many trucks that has gotten a supercharger installed by the STILLEN performance shop over the past few weeks and there are even more on the schedule!

As you can see from the photo below, the owner is already having a blast off-roading with this Raptor after they got their supercharger installed!

Raptor with Supercharger Service

After adding a supercharger to your car’s engine, you don’t want to be taking it to the dealer service center or the service center down the street. You want to take it to someone you know you can trust and who knows how to service performance cars and trucks. This is why we are seeing the black Raptor featured in this photo. As many of you will remember, the STILLEN performance shop installed the supercharger on this prerunner a few months ago (click here to see the full write up on this Raptor). The owner brought it back for service.

Now, if you’re looking to get a bit more from your supercharger, the STILLEN performance shop is definitely the place to come and this is why the Ford GT500 came in. The owner brought his car in because he wanted to get a bit more horsepower from his supercharged engine. With that in mind, the STILLEN team installed a new supercharger pulley to create more boost and get the horsepower the owner was looking for.

GT Service

Like the cars and trucks that have superchargers installed, you don’t want to trust your Ford GT servicing to just anyone. Over the years, the STILLEN performance shop has seen its share of Ford GT’s come in for service and has earned a sterling reputation for working with these vehicles.

With the Ford GT Rally 8 coming up in September in Northern California, we have started to see a few of these supercars trickle into the STILLEN Performance Shop.

An upgraded Ford Racing supercharger pulley went into this blue striped machine. By simply installing the smaller supercharger pulley and a re-flash of the ECU, you can see power increases of up to 100HP!

Steve Millen Ford GT

What did you do this weekend?  Mow the lawn?  Have a BBQ?  hang out at the beach?  How about race a Ford GT supercar around closed public roads?  Well that’s what Steve Millen found himself doing this weekend.

Steve Millen Ford GT

As you may know Steve was born and raised in New Zealand before moving to America in the early 80′s to launch his very successful North American racing career.  Now that he no longer races professionally he enjoys competing in Targa Rallies, hill climbs, and “street sprints.”  This particular event was the latter and basically consists of blasting around public roads (closed for the event) in your favorite weapon of choice.  Here are a few pictures of Steve hustling the STILLEN Ford GT around the Ruakaka Street Sprint. Pictures come courtesy of Amy Davidson (Steve’s niece.)

How can you possibly make a FORD GT look any better? From the factory these things are the perfect combination of vintage throwback looks and modern bad assery.
While the phrase “you don’t mess with perfection” comes to mind every time I think of adding a “body kit” to a Ford GT. There are very very few products I would put on my Ford GT if I owned one, could you imagine seeing one with a Black Widow body kit on it ? Oh dear god. That being said, I have to say these dry carbon pieces from Tecnocraft most definitely raise the game of any Ford GT to a whole new level.

This Ford GT received the FULL dry carbon aero treatment. Front lip, Side skirts, Rear diffuser, and custom painted spoiler. I’d say it looks amazing wouldn’t you agree?

This rear diffuser is most definitely a work of art.

These side skirts aren’t just for looking cool, they are actually very functional, check out the notch in front of the rear wheel to ad some turbulence to the air flow.

Check out the custom paint work on the dry carbon spoiler…. the beauty is always in the details.

For more info on this build please feel free to give one of our product specialists a call.

It’s the middle of the week and our Performance Center is operating on all cylinders today, excuse the horrible pun please.  We have a car in just about every department getting the attention they deserve.

Aaron is taking car of a G35 on the dyno, and releasing some reliable torque and horsepower by way of an UP REV tune.


We have a twin pair of FORD GT’s getting some suspension love by way of PENSKE coilovers and alignment.

It doesn’t get much better than a brand new set of external reservoir Penske 8300 Shock absorbers.


Not only do we have one gorgeous 370z in the shop but we have two, getting some routine maintenance done…


As you can see, the guys in the Performance Center have had a very busy day, but that’s not to say we don’t have time for new projects here at STILLEN. Make sure you give us a call if you need anything done, from oil changes to custom builds, these guys quite literally do it all.
