The STILLEN / Vortech V-3 series supercharger is unique in that it uses a self-lubricating oil. This means there is no need for running additional oil lines, or tapping the oil pan. All of those inconveniences (and future leaks) from previous versions are a thing of the past.
The V-3 utliizes a very simple stainless braided hose that is designed to hang down near the shassis of the car. Oil changes are made easy by simply removing the drain bolt, and refilling to the specified level. Please follow these guidelines in servicing your supercharger unit. DO NOT OVERFILL!
STILLEN / Vortech V-3 Supercharger Mainteance Schedule & Procedure
Recently we lauched the press release and information regarding the STILLEN 3.7L Supercharger for the Nissan 370Z and Infiniti G37, along with some video of track testing and data logging as we put the supercharger through it’s paces in a demanding environment.
Our testing doesn’t stop there. Steve Millen personally has been putting thousands of miles on the STILLEN 370Z in all types of environments, altitudes, deserts, long trips through surrounding states, and earlier this week spent some time in the snow and cold for some cold weather endurance testing, including freezing temperatures, cold starts below freezing, etc.

STILLEN Introduces 500+HP Supercharger System for Nissan 370Z / Infiniti G37
(Costa Mesa – CA) – After more than a year of development and testing, Steve Millen Sportparts (STILLEN) is proud to announce the release of the STILLEN Supercharger System for the Nissan 370Z and Infiniti G37 with the 3.7L VQ37 engine.
This complete bolt-on kit includes everything needed to increase the factory 332 horsepower to a tire shredding 500+ horsepower on 91 octane pump fuel!
In the last update post we showed the new Intake Manifold and discussed the function of the Air-to-Water Intercooler System. Heres some more details on the design of the Intake Manifold and the engineering behind the STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger System.
As you can see we have relocated the throttle bodies to one side of the intake manifold. There are several reasons for this:
After the decision was made to go with the Vortech Centrifugal Supercharger, work began on developing the kit. The engineers spent hours under the hood of our project G37 Coupe taking measurements, test fitting parts, and checking the tight clearances to see where they could put all of the necessary components. The new VQ37 has a very unique and challenging dual throttle body intake design. The STILLEN engineers have had great success with making big power off this design and a perfect example of that are the Generation 3 Intakes which offer up to 18 horsepower! However, the supercharger was going to require some creative thinking and once again, the engineers have pulled it off!
Here are some pictures of the STILLEN-designed intake manifold done with our 3D CAD software, and some of the new aluminum castings just received before final machining:
A little while back we had a chance to meet up with Matt Farah and his awesome crew from TheSmokingTire.com and show them around the buildings here at STILLEN.
Matt and Steve then jumped in the bright orange STILLEN GT-R and took a run through some of the local canyons. See below for the video!
