Since STILLEN signed the agreement with Whipple Superchargers to become the only recognized and warranty certified installer in the Southern California area, the STILLEN Performance Shop has been booked solid installing these beauties. The dominant car has definitely been the Chevrolet Camaro, but the latest installation was on this absolutely gorgeous Ford F150 6.2 Liter SVT Raptor.
To say we were excited to get right into the Ford Raptor supercharger install would be a huge understatement, the whole office was buzzing and taking bets (no money was exchanged- just bragging rights) on how much h.p. this beast would pull on the Dyno after the install.
We’ve had plenty of trucks come through the doors here to get work done, but this was the first Raptor, and a heavily modified one at that with a full RPG suspension, cat-back exhaust, LED lights, winch, 37’s, etc.
With the latest technology, the all new Whipple supercharger kit creates more power than any other superchargers on the market and is 100% complete and designed for stock engines, but also has enough capability to work with the heaviest of modified engines. With this in mind, we were expecting the Whipple to add about 25% extra horsepower at the wheel to this truck’s already impressive resume!
After the Ford Raptor Supercharger Install
On the baseline run on the Dyno the truck pulled 360 h.p. at the wheel. After the install, we mounted it up again and this time the results were drastically different!!! The truck laid down 502 h.p., an almost 40% increase.
To say our customer was happy after the Ford Raptor supercharger install would be an understatement…..he was over the moon!!! He knew in an instant he had made the right choice on not only the Supercharger, but also on the highly skilled team of technicians at STILLEN to get it installed correctly!!

It’s always exciting for us when we speak with a dealership who understands the real purpose of a car. The purpose of a car isn’t the same as what we do with our cars, or what we use our cars for. We use our cars to get us from point to point. We use our cars to haul our families around. We use our cars to get groceries. However, the purpose of a car is to enjoy life. The purpose of a car is to get us from point to point, quicker. The purpose of the car is to enjoy the road trip with our families. So to fully enjoy life – and your car at the same time, it’s important you work with a dealership that understands how much the true joy of owning an Infiniti Q60 can bring to someone. Enter Auto West Infiniti of Richmond, British Columbia.
Auto West Infiniti clearly understands what life is all about. Not only do they sell the highest level of luxury performance cars having chosen the Infiniti franchise, but they have also chosen to outfit those cars with STILLEN performance parts to further enhance the new owners excitement about driving such an awesome car like an Infiniti Q60. We’ve decided to do a spotlight on the latest creation by the team at Auto West Infiniti.
Their designers started out with a 2014 Infiniti Q60 XS package. From there, the master techs in their service department installed the STILLEN Gen 3 Infiniti Q60 cold air intake, STILLEN Cat back exhaust system for Infiniti Q60 with dual wall tips, Infiniti Q60 Eibach Lowering Springs, 20″ Infiniti Accessory Wheels and to preserve the factory bumper, the STILLEN no drill license plate holder.
The end result is this stunning example of what is possible when you head to a dealership who truly understands the reason for owning a high performance luxury vehicle like the Infiniti Q60! We would like to say great work to the guys at Auto West Infiniti!

STILLEN has been producing body kits in-house for over 20 years, and customers have long enjoyed the benefits of polyurethane over the easily breakable fiberglass parts found on the market today.

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.
