Last week, we put up a little teaser photo of a one-of-a-kind WideBody mystery car getting some more grunt under the hood by way of a STILLEN Supercharger. We asked our readers to guess what kind of car it is.
To our surprise, most of you guessed what car it was immediately, and said the tail lights where a dead giveaway. I guess we should have cropped more out of the photo. Oh well, the next “guess the car post” will be much more difficult and maybe we will even throw in a prize or two
Since you guessed the car pretty easily, we figured it was a good time to show you the finished product.
The Intercooler of the Stage2 Supercharger kit looks nice and tidy tucked inside the widebody G35 bumper. You might have to look reeeeeeeeeeal hard but it’s in there… trust us.
Keep an eye out for this car on the streets.
Last month we brought you the information on the new high end Goodridge Phantom Gstop Brakelines, and as these are arriving soon, we wanted to get the word out, and get these in the hands of our customers, so we’re giving away 2 sets for free!
Simply head over to the STILLEN Facebook page, give us a ‘Like’ and you’ll have access to the entry form on the Sweepstakes tab, just pop in your information and you’ll be entered to win. We’ll be picking a winner on April 15th, and again on April 30th!
The Phantom Brakelines are new from Goodridge, and are designed to replace the factory rubber brake lines on your car, improving safety, reducing stopping distances and deliver a much better brake pedal feel, just like the popular Goodridge Gstop Brakeline kits. The Phantom series upgrades the hardware and fittings to stainless steel, features a black coating on the stainless steel lines, a beautiful upgrade, and we couldn’t encourage our customers more to consider upgrading your brake lines if you haven’t already, it’s an inexpensive upgrade that has huge benefits.
Good luck! You can read the full giveaway rules here.
STILLEN is excited to announce the availability of select AP Racing brake systems in a limited-edition caliper color – Competition Gray.
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!
We’re enthusiasts here at STILLEN, just like yourself, and whenever possible we like to get our hands dirty, especially when it gives us the opportunity to install some STILLEN products, and get a real-world feel for them, just like you our customer will experience.
I drive a 2004 G35 Coupe, and after upgrading to 20″ wheels and installing an Eibach Pro-Kit and STILLEN Sway Bars, the resulting issue with camber on the front and rear was evident immediately, and I quickly realized that despite the fresh new rubber smell of the BFGoodrich’s I had just installed, these tires would be short-lived if I didn’t look for a camber solution ASAP.
Continuing with the performance success of the STILLEN Generation 3 Intake System for the 3.7L engines in the G37 Coupe and G37 Sedan, STILLEN is proud to release the Gen 3 Intake for the Dual Throttle Body G35 Sedan.
STILLEN G35 Sedan Gen 3 Ultra Long Intake
When developing these intakes, we’ve seen the highest gains after 7-8 dyno runs. This intake was installed on a customer vehicle, so we limited testing to 3 runs. During this testing, gains are up just over 15hp to the wheels (dyno below) at high RPM’s, 12hp peak, and may increase slightly.
Sound is mild during normal driving, but spirited under acceleration, especially over 5,500 RPM. These intakes are in stock and shipping. Pricing and additional information available HERE.
More information and a video (for approximate reference on sound) is available on the G37 Coupe Gen 3 Intake Blog post HERE.

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!

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.
