Supercharger

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. :)

 

It’s not every day that we release our Nissan 370Z demo car into the wild but when the guys from The Smoking Tire asked to stop by and take the car for a spin we had to oblige!  Matt Farah has been here before and went for a spin with Steve in the team STILLEN GT-R Targa rally car.  During that visit Matt saw the 370Z in multiple pieces as it was receiving the STILLEN treatment.  After multiple phone calls, emails, and text messages we were able to schedule a visit for Matt to get into the drivers seat of a STILLEN tuned 370Z.

This car has been reworked from the inside out and from front to back.  With KW Variant III coil overs, adjustable sway bars, adjustable control arms, AP Racing brakes, Enkei GTC-01 wheels and Toyo R888 tires, cat-back exhaust, 370Z supercharger (CARB legal and warrantied) to the urethane 370Z body kit by STILLEN along with the Seibon carbon fiber hood.

Street Legal 350Z Supercharger

STILLEN is proud to announce the availability of the 2007-2008 350Z supercharger kit for the dual throttle body VQ35HR.

This supercharger system took over a year to develop and involves revolutionary designs to offer customers easy upgradability and installation. With this supercharger system, power is boosted to 450 horsepower (or 375whp).

Air to water intercooler: By redesigning the intake manifold we were able to incorporate the intercooler inside the manifold, thus allowing us to cool the air charge immediately before the air enters the engine. Additionally, the front mounted heat exchanger does not block the airflow supplying cool air to other vital coolers such as the radiator, engine oil cooler, transmission cooler, power steering cooler or the A/C condenser. Because water is 4 times more efficient at dissipating heat than air, we are able to utilize a more compact heat exchanger to cool the water.

For over 25 years STILLEN has been recognized as a leader in Nissan/Infiniti tuning. With a history of setting “first time” milestones in the aftermarket for these great vehicles, STILLEN has established themselves as the company to follow when it comes to Nissan and Infiniti product development. STILLEN was the first company to develop the HICAS eliminator system for the 300ZX Z32 platform. When the Z33 350Z was introduced, STILLEN was once again the leader with the first forced induction solution, as well as the first to offer CARB legality, and AGAIN the first with a 3-year/36,000 mile engine warranty.

Well, STILLEN has done it again as Team STILLEN is proud to announce the CARB approval of the Nissan 370Z (Z34) G37 Supercharger Kit.

STILLEN has not only been the first company to achieve CARB legality of a forced induction solution on the VQ37, we have also been the first company to achieve such an accomplishment while tuning through Nissan’s sophisticated ECU with larger injectors. This is a major accomplishment for Team STILLEN and one that will join the many other first time landmarks STILLEN has achieved in the Nissan/Infiniti tuning world.

CARB (California Air Resources Board) is the division of the California state government that controls all aspects of air quality and standards. With standards getting stricter it is getting more and more difficult to achieve CARB legality. CARB is recognized as the toughest emissions control in the country and is therefore 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.

The power the STILLEN Supercharger system delivers is dramatic, taking the factory 3.7L V6 from 332hp to over 500hp! The system is designed to work with both automatic and 6-speed vehicles, including convertible and AWD models.

The STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger features a new cast aluminum intake manifold engineered specifically for this kit, complete air-to-water intercooler system, and boost is derived from a Vortech V-3 Supercharger unit. The V-3 features a quiet V-belt design, and a self-contained oiling system for easy maintenance.
