The NISSAN Juke is most definitely one of those “love it or leave it” kinds of vehicles, personally I love it. The car reminds of a 90′s group B rally car that has been tamed for the street. Yes, I’ll admit it, the car does look kind of look like a bloated frog on a hot day, but sometimes new designs just take a little getting used to. Another thing I love about the Nissan Juke is that it’s turbo charged 1.6L engine responds very well to slight modifications.
The guys over at PERFORMANCE FROG have been covering the build of their JUKE on their blog for quite some time. Recently, they compiled a very thorough video on how to install the STILLEN axle back exhaust on your Juke.
For about $260 and 30 minutes of your time, you’re good for an additional 13hp and 14 lb ft of torque.
It’s not quite going to make your Nissan Juke a group B rally monster but it’s most definitely a step or “hop” in the right direction.

Last week, we told you about the IMPORT TUNER Power Pages article that featured our Supercharged 370z with just 3 magical parts on it.
STILLEN 370Z INTERCOOLED SUPERCHARGER KIT
STILLEN 370Z DUAL EXHAUST SYSTEM
STILLEN UP REV ENGINE TUNE
As you can see from the previous article, those three parts alone gave the 370z a 139HP boost at the wheels and 90lb/ft of torque. While we would LOVE to equip our customers cars with superchargers all day, the $8,000+ price tag might be a little too much for every budget. So today, we figured it would be fitting to cover a more cost effective approach to the “magic number.”
For their customer (Richard Park) EFI LOGICS combined the
370Z GEN 3 STILLEN LONG TUBE INTAKE $499
370Z STILLEN CAT BACK DUAL EXHAUST SYTEM $1269.61
370Z UP REV OSIRIS ECU TUNE $499 (plus dyno time)
For some pretty amazing horsepower and torque gains.
As you can see, it turns out 3 is in fact the magic number on the 370z for gains good for +40HP at the wheels and +30 lb/ft of torque. All for a price that’s roughly around $2500.
If you are interested in taking your 370z to the next level, give us or EFI LOGICS a call and both of us will gladly help point you in the right direction.

Lately, we have been getting a ton of 370z questions regarding when we officially recommend tuning your 370Z after adding a few bolt on’s. The 370z is a very potent car straight out of the box but as soon as you start adding one too many bolt on’s you can change the car’s optimal air/fuel ratio to actually start to hinder your motor. Instead of boring you with a horribly written “Guide to modding your 370z,” I’ll refer you to the IMPORT TUNER power pages article where they managed to massage an extra 40HP out of the VQ37VHR powerplant.
Maybe that will help clear up the “what part adds what and when you should tune” debate. As they say in the article… THE DYNO DOESN’T LIE!
For more information on the products that can be found in this article…
Plus we have plenty of other 370Z power adding goodies available if you want to step things up a little further than 40hp.
