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.
Pfadt Camaro Front and Rear Adjustable Sport Sway Bars
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.
After it was all said and done, the supercharged Chevy put down 521 horsepower and 495 foot pounds of torque!

I think it’s safe to say that most of you don’t get tired of seeing superchargers, especially when they go into a Nissan 370Z Nismo as clean as this one. Already having it’s share of mods, including the STILLEN 370Z Gen 3 Intake, the owner decided it was time to supercharge the VQ37.
The attention to detail on this white 370Z Nismo is very impressive. White powder coated front strut bar, flat black headlight housing with white projector rings, red carbon fiber interior accents, flat black wheels and white brake calipers are only a few of the custom touches that make this Z stand out.
The STILLEN 370Z Supercharger is a 50 State legal, bolt-on install that uses the Vortech V3 self-lubricating supercharger system. This force induction kit has shown a dyno proven increase to over 500 horsepower!

A different customer brought in his 2012 Chevrolet Camaro to get a Cat-back exhaust system installed in order to unleash the power and the sounds of his 6.2L L99 Camaro SS.
We have a beautiful Nismo 350z in the corner of our shop getting a tune up and a Stage 3 Supercharger installed.

The SUBARU BRZ / SCION FRS is taking the sport compact world by storm and naturally the masterminds in our RD department have got the creative juices flowing in order to bring more excitement to this fantastic platform.
I can’t say what parts we currently have in the works so I’ll end this post with a question to all you FRS / BRZ owners.
What parts would you like to see us develop first for this bad boy?

It’s one of those days when almost every flavor of horsepower deliciousness is represented inside our Performance Center today. I gotta say it’s day’s like today that really give me an appreciation for all the amazing work our guys in our shop can do.
On our alignment rack we have a very sleek / innocent looking 350z … that is until you spot the all business 6 pot AP RACING brakes tucked behind the NISMO wheels.
Every corner of the shop has something glorious stuffed in it, on our lift next the the alignment rack, we have a GORGEOUS Amuse kitted 370z
Right next the the Amuse 370z, we have a 350z getting some forced induction love by way of a STILLEN STAGE 3 Supercharger.
In front of the newly boosted 350z we have some good old fashioned american muscle by way of a FORD GT that is getting a new STILLEN exhaust fitted onto the back of it.
Hiding behind the Ford GT lies some more horsepower god’s just waiting to lay down some power on the streets.
Since we are already on the subject of American, here’s an insanely powerful Stroked, Cammed and Supercharged Dodge Charger….
Last time we dyno tuned it, we had to limit the power because the beast ran out of fuel. So today the Charger is getting bigger injectors and a higher volume fuel pump installed. I can’t wait to see how much power this thing can put down.
In front of the Charger is another FORD GT that is getting some good old fashioned Coilovers installed to take it up to a whole new level.
Next to the FORD GT we have a twin pair of twin turbo’d 300zx’s that are getting tune up’s to make sure their VG30DETT’S run strong for another 15 years.
And Big green elephant in the room that everyone wants to know about is a 800+ WHP Toyota Supra that has an engine bay clean enough to eat every meal of your life off of.
It turns out, this customer’s Supra was built by STILLEN around 10 years ago and every year since then he has added more and more to it. As it stands now, the 2jZ with the STOCK bottom end is putting out just over 800 horsepower to the wheels!!!! This is one Supra I most definitely will never forget.
If this isn’t a testament to the quality of work our performance center does EVERY DAY… I don’t know what is. Well maybe the fact that we have been doing stuff like this for 20+ years could count too.
