STILLEN is proud to announce that all current production STILLEN superchargers have achieved CARB exemption through 2014! For many years, STILLEN has been recognized as the leader in NISSAN/INFINITI performance products and we continue our commitment by continuing to invest in tuning these fine vehicles. Our dedication to the NISSAN/INFINITI vehicles and the pride we have for the parts we manufacture for them shines through with this latest accomplishment. The new CARB exemption order numbers (EO # D-426-19 and EO# D-436-20) cover all single and dual throttle body supercharger systems for the VQ35, VQ35HR, VQ37, VQ40 and VK56 engines.
Not only is STILLEN the only company to offer CARB exempt performance parts for these vehicles, but STILLEN is the only company in the world to achieve CARB legality when tuning through the factory ECU with larger fuel injectors. In the past, the only way to achieve CARB approval was with a piggyback ECU.
With the latest extension of CARB Exemption Order numbers, STILLEN is also excited to announce the extension of the powertrain warranty programs already in place for these supercharger systems. When you purchase your supercharger kit you have the option of adding a 3 year/36,000 mile powertrain warranty. STILLEN is the only NISSAN/INFINITI tuner in the world to offer this with their supercharger systems.
Note: CARB (California Air Resources Board), a division of the California state government, is widely recognized as the strictest emissions control in the US and is recognized in all 50 states as an emissions standard for all performance parts. If a performance part achieves CARB legality, it is recognized as 50-state legal.

Just announced… STILLEN cold air intakes for Nissan and Infiniti vehicles have been CARB approved through 2014! For nearly 20 years, STILLEN has worked with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to develop products that are compliant with OE standards of total vehicle integration and performance. With this long history in mind, STILLEN is proud to announce the cold air intakes for the Infiniti Q50 and Q60 have been CARB approved. We are equally proud to announce year range extensions for the 2014 370Z , Maxima and more. For a full list of vehicle applications, please see below.
STILLEN was the first company to prove that a cold air intake on the VQ37 engine could actually make power and is still recognized as the leading cold air intake with the highly sought after Generation 3 long tube cold air intakes for the 370Z, G37 and Q60. It took 6 months of in-house R&D and testing and 56 different variations of prototype intake systems but it was all worth it and the end result was the leading cold air intake for the VQ37 equipped vehicles.
When it came time to manufacturing air intake systems for vehicles like the Altima, Maxima, Titan, Frontier, etc. STILLEN leaned on its vast experience in manufacturing high performance parts for NISSAN/INFINITI vehicles. On the Nissan Altima and Maxima applications STILLEN is the only manufacturer of high performance intakes that incorporates a poly-urethane ducted air intake path leading fresh air from behind the factory grille directly into the air intake filter. Included in many of these kits is STILLEN’s unique velocity ring which increases the velocity of the air as it is drawn into the engine thus producing more power!
Note: The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is a division of the California state government and is widely recognized for having the most stringent emissions control regulations in the United States. Therefore, each of the 50 states recognizes its standards as the emissions standard for all performance parts. Each performance part that achieves CARB legality is considered 50-state legal.

- 2007-2013 Nissan Altima Sedan CARB approved intake kit

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

Here at STILLEN, we love cars and the Infiniti Q50 is no exception. This car has already become a favorite among the STILLEN team, so it’s no wonder that we’ve been hard at work developing brand new performance parts that will squeeze every ounce of power, sound and performance out of this car. Just a few months ago, we introduced you to the STILLEN 504440 cat-back exhaust for the Infiniti Q50 (read more about this exhaust our blog post by clicking here) and now we’re proud to introduce you to the STILLEN 403230 Generation 2 Dual Cold Air Intake Kit for Infiniti Q50.
History of Excellence
The STILLEN R&D team has a long history of developing top of the line air intakes for the Nissan and Infiniti cars and chose to incorporate many of these principles in the Infiniti Q50 Gen2 cold air intakes. Like our other Gen2 intakes, this Infiniti Q50 air intake kit comes with polyurethane heat shields that effectively direct air inside the engine bay to maximize performance.
While many of us upgrade to aftermarket intakes from the stock intakes for the performance gains, sound is also another reason to upgrade. Aftermarket intakes just sound better and this is definitely true for the STILLEN Cold Air Intakes for Infiniti Q50. With these hi-flow intakes you can enjoy a mild sound while cruising, but also enjoy a richer sound as the engine comes to life under acceleration.
The Best Cold Air Intakes for Infiniti Q50
Heat shields and sounding good aren’t the only reasons we believe the STILLEN Generation 2 Dual Cold Air Intake Kit is the best cold air intake available. Here are a few more reasons why we like this cold air intake:
- Twin mandrel bent polished aluminum intake tubes
- Comes with two K&N Filters
- 1,000,000 mile warranty on filters
- Dual cone integrated with velocity stack
- No check engine light (CEL) problems – guaranteed!
- 50 State legal
- Customizable – paint the urethane intake boxes to match your car or leave natural black
- Hassle-free, bolt-on installation with easy to follow instructions
- Made in the USA

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!! Click on the video below to see second Dyno pull and check out the results.
Whipple Superchargers Installed By STILLEN
STILLEN continues to be the only recognized and warranty certified installer in the Southern California area for all Whipple Supercharger installations. When you have your supercharger kit installed by the STILLEN Performance Shop you can be rest assured that your vehicle will be eligible for coverage under the Whipple Supercharger 3-year/36,000 mile, 5-year/60,000 mile or even the 5-year/100,000 mile warranty options!
Whipple Superchargers are designed and manufactured in the US and utilize their innovative Twin Screw Compressor technology and only require oil replacement every 100,000 miles.
