Here at STILLEN, we’re pretty proud of the products we make. We know firsthand how much time and effort goes into sourcing the correct materials, developing the perfect design and testing the prototypes all so that we are 100% confident that the aftermarket parts our customers are putting into their cars are the best they possibly could be. As proud as we are of the parts we make, we are even more proud when a third party recognizes a STILLEN part for its quality. Needless to say, the office was abuzz this week when we found out the STILLEN brake cooling kit for the Nissan 370Z was featured in a MotoIQ Project 370Z article!
Project 370Z Article Summary
As the article mentions, the goal of Project 370Z is to get some track time with their 370Z. As improvements to the car have led to improved lap times, they have also led to more stress on the brakes. With this in mind, the team decided it was time to upgrade with the brake cooling kit. With that decision made, it was time to actually install the kit and test it. By this time, most of the STILLEN team was on the edge of their seat wanting to hear how our in-house testing was comparing to MotoIQ’s third party testing. Checkout the quote below to see how our brake cooling kit fared:
“With the brake ducts covered, the right front caliper temperature peaked at 272 degrees Fahrenheit, and the rotor at 529 degrees Fahrenheit. The Left front caliper reached 259 degrees, with the rotor at 550 degrees. Once the ducts were opened, both the left and right side caliper dropped 44 degrees. The right front rotor dropped 156 degrees, and the left front rotor dropped a whopping 216 degrees! This is a significant reduction and spot on with STILLEN’s in house testing at the same track. We were truly impressed with the numbers. Also the brake feel and control stayed more consistent throughout the session with the ducts functioning. Any 370 that sees a decent amount of track time should look into purchasing this kit, it’s a cost effective way to give yourself a higher temperature threshold for your brake system and will also prolong the life of the ware items such as pads, rotors, piston seals, and brake fluid.” – Clint Boisdeau, MotoIQ

STILLEN is proud to announce the 2011-2014 Nissan Juke all-wheel drive rear sway bar is now available. The STILLEN 2011-2014 Nissan Juke AWD Rear Sway Bar is rear mounted and offers more rigidity than the factory rear sway bar to aid in cornering and vehicle stability. STILLEN has designed this sway bar to be stiffer than the factory bar which will allow for better turn-in, rotation, and overall improved stability when pushing either a Nissan or Nismo Juke hard through canyon roads, on the track, or even trying to get to work in the morning!
A common complaint on all wheel drive vehicles is the experience of “understeer.” Understeer is where you are driving the car spiritedly and the car doesn’t want to rotate through the turn. Instead the front tires just “push” or “under steer.” By stiffening the rear suspension, the chassis will be more planted and allow the car to rotate better which gives drivers a more positive feel as they accelerate through turns.
• Made out of high-tensile strength steel.
• Incorporates precision laser cut end link brackets.
• Finished in a brilliant red powder coat finish.
• Protects against corrosion and wear & tear.
• Designed to keep the underside of the car looking great!
• Backed with a STILLEN lifetime guarantee!
To speak with an expert and place your sway bar order, give us a call at (866) 250-5542. You can check out all the STILLEN Sway Bars we carry, or explore all the items we have for sale here at STILLEN.com. You can also schedule anything from a routine maintenance or install to a full scale racing build on the Performance Shop site.

The number of Nissan Infiniti Canadian STILLEN dealers keeps increasing and quite a few of them have been customizing some great cars with STILLEN products. Of the Canadian STILLEN dealers, Tony Graham Infiniti Nissan in Nepean, Ontario, is no exception. Not only do they carry and display STILLEN product right in their showroom, but the team at Tony Graham uses STILLEN aftermarket parts to modify and customize their vehicles, most recently, a 2014 Nissan Juke and a 2014 Infiniti Q60 S AWD.

The Nissan Titan has a lot of strengths, but as countless owners know, one of them is not the factory OEM radiator. It’s combination of aluminum and plastic end tanks do one thing really well, and that is crack, dumping all of the engine coolant, leaving you helpless and stranded. Getting towed to the dealership, paying upwards of $600 for a new radiator and you’re on your way right? Until it happens again, the plastic end tanks cracking and emptying the cooling system on the ground below.
STILLEN has long been the solution to the failing Nissan Titan radiators for years, designing and having CSF Radiators produce an all-aluminum 2-row performance radiator, which has been a lifesaver for Titan owners stuck replacing their radiators over and over again. And we’ve improved things once again!
Meet the STILLEN Nissan Titan 3-Row All-Aluminum Performance Radiator
In 2013 STILLEN has has redesigned a brand new drop-in replacement radiator for the 2004-2013 Nissan Titan, Armada and QX56. This new radiator features a 3-row thick core, and holds twice as much coolant as the factory radiators! The construction is all-aluminum, and designed to improve reliability, airflow, total cooling and also comes with an internal transmission oil cooler just like the OE unit. The STILLEN Radiator is designed to be an easy installation, with drop-in fitment like the factory unit, and features a 2-year warranty.
Even with all of these improvements for the 2013 version, we were able to keep the price identical to the 2-row version!

When a car is just done right, there’s that jolt that seems to travel directly from your eyeballs to your brain when you see it, causing you to mouth the word ‘whoa…’
Such is the case with STILLEN customer Alden Arneson and his 2011 Nissan Maxima SV Sport, taking advantage of almost every product STILLEN manufactures for the 7th Generation Maxima and showcasing what a cleanly modified Max can achieve to be.. and he’s not done yet! Alden worked closely with our dealer Revision Audio near his hometown in Hawaii to make his dream a reality.
Alden’s Maxima takes everything into account.. Full STILLEN polyurethane body kit, performance products including a cold-air intake and stainless catback exhaust system, suspension system featuring coilovers, sway bar and braces, and what most people seem to forget when building a high performance vehicle, a complete AP Racing big brake upgrade by STILLEN.
Maxima Modification List
- STILLEN Polyurethane Front Lip Spoiler
- STILLEN Polyurethane Side Skirts
- STILLEN Polyurethane Rear Corners
- STILLEN Polyurethane Roof Wing
- STILLEN Polyurethane Rear Diffuser (On Order)
- STILLEN Cold-Air Intake System w/Fresh Air Duct
- STILLEN Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System
- STILLEN Front Strut Tower Brace
- STILLEN Rear Sway Bar
- AP Racing Front and Rear Big Brake Kits
- Megan Racing Coilovers
- SSR SP3 Wheels in SBC Finish – 20×9.5 Front / 20×10.5 Rear
We asked Alden about his build, why he chose the Maxima, and what he has planned next, and here’s his thoughts:
I became interested in the maxima after I had seen the new body style. I loved how aggressive it looked. After I took it for a test drive, I was sold. At first, I told my self that I wasn’t going to mod this car. I previously owned a fully built Mitsubishi Galant. I was always into building something different. Needless to say, I got bored. I decided that I would just drop the car and be done with it.
Well, then came the rims. The addiction had started again. I began to look around for parts. I knew that STILLEN had been making Nissan parts for a long time. To my amazement, I found a whole bunch of parts for the Maxima. I knew that I had to have everything that was out there for this car. Fast forward about a year and the project is still going. My future plans include a full air bag suspension setup from AirRunner systems. A full custom audio setup is also in the works currently.
Just want to thank STILLEN for making awesome parts. I hope there are more in the works. I also wanna give a shout out to Revision Audio. They have pretty much built my car from the bottom up. Special thanks to Samson Mak, Derek Katayama, and Todd Oya for all of your help.
