Supercharger

While we regularly hold training sessions with our vendors to keep up with their latest product lines and to brush up on their existing product lines, it’s not every day our vendors show up with a red hot Chevy Camaro as their training material. Recently, Magnuson superchargers did just that to introduce us to their new Heartbeat Supercharger.

More Efficiency, More Power

To start out the training, our sales rep reviewed the details of the new Heartbeat supercharger system with us. One key improvement over their previous systems and their competitors’ systems is an improved intercooling system. By utilizing Formula 1 and NASCAR heat exchanger technology to make their cooling system more efficient, they were able to avoid heat soak, bring down the IATs which provides more consistent performance from the new Heartbeat line of superchargers. Here are a few other benefits of this system:

  • Includes a cast aluminum intake manifold
  • Fuel system comes with factory push-lock connectors for an easier installation
  • Kit includes twin dual-pass charge air coolers, coolant circulation pump, heat exchanger and all necessary installation hardware

With all of these upgrades, you’re probably wondering, as we were, “How much power does this system actually make?” Looking at the Magnuson Heartbeat supercharger for 2008-2013 Chevrolet Corvette, you can expect over 900 HP at 10-11 psi with this system. This is more than 25 HP than their previous system and 46 HP more than their competitors’ systems were able to produce in independent testing.

Seeing the Heartbeat Supercharger in Action

After hearing all of this, we were excited to see the Heartbeat supercharger in action. That’s when we were able to get a sneak peak of one of their systems that will be available soon – the Magnuson Heartbeat Supercharger for the Chevy Camaro! This particular system was installed on a new 2014 Chevy Camaro SS 1LE. We couldn’t get specifics, but it is rumored that this kit has been tested to produce 500+ hp to the wheels!

Our friends at Nissan Lloydminster are at it again with another souped-up Titan. The goal of this project truck was to make it powerful and fast to leave other trucks in its dust… They definitely met their goal with this Titan! The list of upgrades on the Nissan Lloydminster truck is impressive and is definitely enough to turn any enthusiast’s head!

Adding Horsepower to the Souped-Up Titan:

To get the horsepower they were looking for, the Nissan Lloydminster team started by replacing the stock intake with a STILLEN Hi-Flow cold air intake. They also removed the stock exhaust and added a STILLEN 503257 dual exhaust. Not only do these upgrades improve horsepower, but they also help improve air efficiency. However, these changes were not enough for the Lloydminster Nissan team… They wanted more power! To accomplish this, they decided to supercharge the engine with a STILLEN 407570 supercharger, which has brought the power on similar Titans up to 379HP at the wheels (check out the STILLEN test dyno chart here). Now, this Titan can really haul!

Note: Dyno results will vary based on temperature, altitude, and other environmental factors.

Don’t worry though, this Titan didn’t just get a STILLEN power boost. It also got several other upgrades to round out its makeover. Other upgrades made include new wheels and tires, lowering shackles, transmission mount and chrome billet grille.

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.

Dodge Challenger Supercharger Install

It’s been a while since we’ve posted an update from the STILLEN Performance Shop, but that doesn’t mean there has been a shortage of awesome vehicles to roll through. From exhausts to superchargers, our mechanics have been busy installing, tuning and everything in between to get upgrades completed for our customers so they can get back on the road.

Magnuson Supercharged Challenger SRT8

A few months back this menacing black SRT8 came through for a Magnuson Supercharger install. It was already boasting some heavy modifications like upgraded suspension, cat-back exhaust, carbon fiber front lip, hood and trunk.

There are a few supercharger options available for the Dodge Challenger, including forced induction kits from Whipple and Edelbrock, but it seems like the Magnuson has been the favorite for the 6.1L Hemi as of late.

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.

Camaro SS Magnusson Supercharger Installed

More supercharger goodness here in the STILLEN Performance Shop. This time in the form of a Magnuson Supercharger System dropping into a 2011 Victory Red Chevy Camaro SS. The stock Camaro SS is a 6.2L V8 powerplant that is said to boost 426 horsepower and 420 Foot Pounds of Torque in this 6-speed manual transmission.

Along with the supercharger, we bolted on a few Pfadt Suspension pieces.
The Chevy Camaro SS Pfadt Rear Arm Package includes Rear Trailing Arms and Rear Tie Rods. These stainless steel arms increase strength while reducing overall weight. This allows the Camaro rear suspension to react quicker while keeping the rear tires in contact with the road for greater traction. The Pfadt Rear Arm Packages includes all required upgraded replacement bushings.

5th Generation Camaros are notorious for under-steer. The Pfadt Sport Sway Bars eliminate that by providing a proper rate of stiffness and balance. This reduces body roll and increases steering response resulting in a better driving experience. Pfadt Sport Sway Bars include greasable graphite-impregnated polyurethane bushings and new mounting brackets for a complete installation.
