Exhaust

We have finished final production on the new STILLEN Stainless 370Z Cat-Back Exhaust System, and wanted to share the pictures, video sound clip and dyno sheets with you.

The 2009-18 Nissan 370Z is responding excellent to power modifications, and our heritage with tuning the Z car has allowed us to squeeze an additional 18whp and 15wtq from this upgrade.  See below for the pictures and video.

Here’s the product information from the STILLEN Product Page:
STILLEN is proud to offer the complete, true dual, stainless steel exhaust system for the 2009-2018 NISSAN 370Z. Constructed out of polished stainless steel and finished with 4.5″ polished 304 stainless tips and polished mufflers this exhaust nets a gain of 18 rear wheel horsepower! With years of experience on the VQ35 engines STILLEN was able to utilize that knowledge with the larger 3.7 liter and find hidden power in the factory exhaust system.

In years past, magazines have always shown the STILLEN exhaust to be the most powerful exhaust when tested in their comparison shootouts. Designed and manufactured in house at STILLEN in Costa Mesa, CA, each product is inspected multiple times for quality, fit and workmanship, leading magazines and blogs to comment on the superior construction, perfect fit and finish and attention to detail found in STILLEN Cat-Back Exhausts. With a sound that offers an aggressive, yet refined note that does not disturb the senses or drone inside the vehicle.”

Nissan has put the “sport” back into its original “four door sports car”, the Nissan Maxima. After unveiling the Sport Sedan Concept early in 2014, it built up anticipation for the eighth generation A367 Maxima for the 2016 model year. Nissan did not disappoint and the numbers prove it, as Maxima sales in March 2017 outperformed the previous 39 months and were the second highest overall in the last 88 months (according to ANDC research).

Port City Nissan x STILLEN 2017 Nissan Maxima IMG_3290

Riding the wave of the Maxima’s popularity, Nate Price, a Parts Consultant at Port City Nissan in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, decided to outfit one of the hot selling sedans with aftermarket components. He installed a STILLEN Front Bumper Lip Splitter Extension for 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima adding this front lip splitter achieving a more aggressive look and some extra performance. Adding to the performance section we will bolt up a STILLEN Stainless Steel Dual Axle-Back Exhaust System for 2016 Nissan Maxima (504399) providing an amazing sound that wakes up the car from factory restrictions on the 8th gen. The chassis was then outfitted with Giovanna 20-inch Haleb wheels before dropping the chassis lower center of gravity, with a set of Eibach Pro-Kit Lowering Springs for 2009-2014 Nissan Maxima (6392.140). According to Price, “We liked the way it turned out, the parts fit like a glove.”

STILLEN is excited to announce the release of our premier Nissan GT-R Exhaust System.  After numerous systems were designed, fabricated and tested; Steve Millen selected this configuration as the one to put into production.

GTR504380_stillen-gt-r-exhaust-studio_001

Meeting all of his criteria for power, sound and appearance this cat-back system uses 504 Stainless Steel, is TIG welded throughout, 27% lighter than stock (30 lbs versus 41 lbs for stock) and results in an aggressive (but not obtrusive) tone.

GTR504380_stillen-gt-r-exhaust-black_Oncar_rear_002

The custom fabricated quadruple 5″ tips really fill the factory exhaust cutouts in the rear fascia and the etched STILLEN logos let everyone know that your R35 is tuned by the GT-R experts.

As with any GT-R performance exhaust system, the STILLEN Exhaust for the Nissan GT-R also offers more horsepower and torque as well- most GT-R’s typically yielded a gain of between 15whp to 20whp, and the system sounds as good as it looks.

When you hear the phrase, “exhaust system,” MagnaFlow is a name that instantly comes to mind.  At this point, the words have become practically synonymous with one another.   Over the past 30 years, MagnaFlow has earned the reputation as being one of the most preeminent exhaust manufacturers in the world.  It strives to consistently produce some of the best sounding, performing, and most durable exhaust products on the market.  As such, we here at STILLEN are proud to announce that our very own Jospeh Tu has had a hand in helping MagnaFlow continue to fulfill this mission.  MagnaFlow has recently announced an upcoming lineup 2016 Chevy Camaro exhaust systems, with Tu’s 2016 Camaro SS serving as one of the developmental vehicles that helped it all come together!

 

Let the Power Flow Through You

Sporting a loud, rumbling 6.2L V8 producing 455 HP, the new 2016 Chevy Camaro SS is already a more-than-capable machine from the factory.  The power, sound, and performance of the new Camaro is sure to put a smile on its driver’s face every time he or she takes the car out for a spin.  However, our friends over at MagnaFlow – as they always do – wanted to take things one step further (and make that smile just a little bit wider) with their new lineup of 2016 Chevy Camaro exhaust systems.  The systems come in either cat-back or axle-back variants for both the 6.2L V8 and 3.6L V6 versions of the car.  However, all of the exhaust systems are constructed out of stainless steel and feature a polished tip finish.  Each system has also been dyno tested and proven to offer performance gains in both horsepower and torque, all while offering MagnaFlow’s lifetime construction warranty.

 

Street King or Track Day Hero?

Depending on your driving needs, there is a choice of either the “Competition” or “Race” series for each 2016 Chevy Camaro exhaust system.  If you’re looking for an excellent driver for the streets, the Competition Series features an aggressive exhaust note and a reduced system mass.  On the other hand, if you’re looking to possibly track your Camaro, the Race Series offers a muffler-less design and emits – as described by MagnaFlow itself – the “most aggressive race car sound”.  Either way, you really can’t go wrong with whatever series you choose.

The Waiting Game

We personally cannot wait for the release of these new MagnaFlow 2016 Chevy Camaro exhaust systems, which are currently available for presale.  If you wish to check out all of the upcoming 2016 Chevy Camaro exhaust products and their respective features and prices, please see this list provided by Magnaflow.  In the meantime, you can also check out this teaser clip featuring the loud rumble of the Camaro SS equipped with the new MagnaFlow exhaust.  The aggressive growl is sure to really get your blood flowing.

 

With deep roots in the Nissan community, it’s only natural that STILLEN has introduced a new line of power, performance and styling products for the 2016 Nissan Maxima. Our design goal was straightforward: offer enhanced performance and add a hint of aggression to the jet-inspired styling, controls and luxurious appointments of the newly updated Maxima.

2016 Nissan Maxima with Stillen power, performance and body styling parts

STILLEN power, performance and body styling products catapult the 2016 Nissan Maxima into the Jet Set.

The Strong, Silent Type

Reviewers from Car and Driver praised the newly redesigned interior. It’s the rare review that doesn’t wax poetic about the enveloping, technology-rich driver compartment, said to be inspired by a fighter jet cockpit.

Yet the latest Maxima offers reduced cabin noise on par with leading luxury brands. Isn’t this a bit like Top Gun minus the control tower flybys?

Blue Angels

Nissan designers visited the Blue Angels for inspiration and ideas they incorporated into the redesigned 2016 Maxima. Not a bad day in the office!

Still a classic movie and all, but for Maxima pilots looking to enhance the engine note both inside and out, STILLEN Stainless Steel Axle Back Exhaust System for 2016 Nissan Mazima A367 offers to open up the afterburners a notch while offering a bump in horsepower and torque numbers.  Like a navy jet catapulting off a carrier deck, your 0-60 launch will sound a lot sweeter.

Stillen 2016 Nissan Maxima Axle-Back Performance Exhaust System

The STILLEN axle-back performance exhaust turns the 2016 Maxima afterburners up a notch.

Living on the Edge

The heavily restyled Maxima incorporates lots of angles and v-shapes (more fighter jet influence?). You could literally and figuratively describe the ’16 Maxima design as “edgy”. So our designers finished the axle-back exhaust system with 4-inch angle cut, dual wall, tapered exhaust tips. They fill the factory exhaust cutouts nicely, delivering an aggressive look that matches the enhanced exhaust note.

Getting Shredded

Everybody knows you stand clear of jet intakes…unless you want to get shredded the bad way…aka like Parmesan cheese instead of like Ahhhhhhnold.  Turbine engines and car engines both rely on free flowing air to make power (trust us on this, we looked it up on howstuffworks.com).

close up of a navy jet intake

Highway to the Danger Zone!

So the perfect pairing with the axle-back exhaust is a STILLEN Hi Flow Cold Air Intake w/ Dry Filter + Polyurethane Air Duct for 2009-2015 Nissan Maxima A367.

It offers performance gains in the 8-10 horsepower range across the entire powerband. Like the exhaust system, the ram air intake amplifies the engine note just enough to add a sporty edge to the lux interior environment.

Stillen 2016 Nissan Maxima Cold Air Intake

The cold air intake adds firepower to the 2016 Maxima Air Force.

The intake retains the factory intake tract which leads into the STILLEN polyurethane air chamber, ensuring the coldest possible air reaches the engine. A sleek, polished aluminum intake tube adds to the look and durability of the unit. It wouldn’t look out of place on an FA-18 Hornet jet fighter. A genuine K & N high flow air filter ensures the Nissan VQ35 3.5-liter V-6 engine breathes cleanly and freely.

Amping Up the Style

For Maxima owners looking to personalize their ride with some subtly aggressive exterior cues, STILLEN designers hand-crafted some great body styling pieces.

Stillen 2016 Nissan Maxima Rear Diffuser

STILLEN designers took their cues from the Maxima’s ‘Flying V’ taillights to create an edgy, muscular rear diffuser.

The STILLEN Matte Black Rear Valance Diffuser for 2016 Nissan Maxima A367 adds some low-down aggressive styling to the rear end of the Maxima. Our designers realized the stock Maxima backside looked rounded and soft compared to the angular front end. They resolved this split personality disorder with a muscular diffuser that is much more cohesive with overall vehicle styling cues. Once installed, the STILLEN diffuser “wakes” up the angular taillight design and covers up the stock exhaust cans for a more finished look. Engineered and constructed for precise fit, the rear diffuser is available either unfinished and ready for paint or painted matte black.

Stillen 2016 Nissan Maxima Roof Wing Spoiler

The STILLEN Roof Wing Spoiler for 2016 Nissan Maxima A367 streamlines the Maxima swept roof line. Supersonic, baby!

For owners looking to enhance the Maxima roof line and improve aerodynamics, STILLEN offers a high quality polyurethane roof wing spoiler. Engineered and constructed for precise fit, the roof wing is available either unfinished and ready for paint or painted matte black.

Stillen 2016 Nissan Maxima front splitter

The STILLEN Front Bumper Splitter for 2016 Nissan Maxima A367 will make you shout ‘Great Balls of Fire!”

Nissan’s designers hit their target with the Maxima front end design.  A light touch was all that was needed to add a little jet fuel to the fire – we created a suitably aggressive front lip/splitter that complements the natural lines of the front bumper while adding a subtle edge.

All of the STILLEN brand 2016 Nissan Maxima body styling products are constructed of durable polyurethane using a proprietary formulation. We’re so confident in their durability that we offer a limited lifetime warranty. They’re easy to install, offer precision fit and finish and include genuine 3M auto trim tape and installation instructions.

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. 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.

For many years STILLEN has been recognized as a leading manufacturer of high performance parts. From exhausts and intakes to supercharger and turbocharger kits, STILLEN has done it all. Over the years questions have been asked as to why STILLEN prefers some of its manufacturing steps over other more popular standards. The best answer to this question is an explanation of the companies history.

STILLEN was founded by Steve Millen. A legendary race-car driver, he won races around the world including the 24 hours of Le Mans, 24 hours of Daytona, numerous championships in many different series, open wheel, sports car, and even Mickey Thompson off-road racing. STILLEN the company, has been manufacturing high performance parts for cars and trucks for nearly 25 years. All of the parts manufactured by STILLEN have many years and hundreds of victories and dozens of championships backing them up. We know what it takes to win races and championships on the race track as well as make parts that last for many, many years on the street.

STILLEN Nissan 2008 - 2014 Full cat back stainless exhaustWhen developing a performance exhaust system the engineers at STILLEN take many things into consideration to help ensure each exhaust meets our high standards.  Here are a few top items the STILLEN team considers when developing a new exhaust system:

  • Power development
  • Sound
  • Quality
  • Fit
  • Finish
  • Ease of installation
  • Aesthetic appeal

Exhaust Power Development

STILLEN has been known to test many different configurations of exhaust systems before signing off on a particular design.  Many vehicles have seen as many as 15 different exhaust configurations on our dyno before testing is complete.  Our goal is to make the most power possible without sacrificing any part of the cars power band. By improving the exhaust’s efficiency we can gain power across the entire RPM band.  STILLEN has been apart of numerous magazine tests on many of our performance exhaust systems and each time we are considered to be among the top performers if not the best.  One of our exhaust systems has been tested by 5 different magazines and each test has shown STILLEN to be the best exhaust system. 2013 Nissan 370z Stillen Exhaust

Exhaust Sound

Performance exhaust systems not only need to develop more power than stock, but they also need to offer the driver an enjoyable sound.  A “good sounding exhaust” is purely objective and is open to interpretation.  Some people like one sound while other people like a completely different sound.

STILLEN always strives for a refined sound that offers a nice blend between mild and wild. During normal driving conditions a STILLEN exhaust will offer a mild sound that is barely noticeable over stock.  Under heavy acceleration, however, the exhaust will come alive.  Letting everyone around the car know that you are all about performance and you are moving fast.  It is difficult to get the right mixture of sounds, but it is very important.  The last thing we want for you want is a droning exhaust system that drives you crazy.

Quality of Exhaust System

STILLEN manufactures all of their exhaust systems out of a combination of polished 304 and 409 stainless steel.  All of the pipes are polished 409 stainless steel and the mufflers and tips are polished 304 stainless steel.  After many years of testing and manufacturing it has been determined that the increased carbon levels in the 409 stainless steel material act as a resonance buffer.  Because 409 stainless steel is slightly heavier than 304 stainless steel, due to its higher carbon levels, it prevents harmonic vibrations that can fatigue metal and cause stress fractures. STILLEN 2008-2014 Nissan Altima ExhaustThis is also helpful in preventing any drone as the exhaust pulse is less likely to hit the harmonic frequency of the metal.  304 stainless steel is better used in areas like mufflers and exhaust tips because the 304 stainless steel will not lose its luster while 409 stainless steel will dull over time.  On most of our exhaust systems the mufflers and tips are in locations that show off the exhaust system.  Because of this we want to make sure those parts are always looking their absolute best.

Fit and Finish of Exhaust

For many years STILLEN has been using exhaust clamps to secure the pipes to one another.  Exhaust flanges are ideal for one off applications, but they do not always work best in mass production.  For instance, it has been well documented that the factory exhaust on a Nissan 350Z or Infiniti G35 can come from the factory off center. Stillen exhaust on car We have seen hundreds of cases where the factory exhaust either did not line up or hung too low on one side.  This problem has to do with the location of the exhaust hangers on the chassis.  Because of this there is no room for adjustment if flanges are utilized.  This means that no matter what, if you have an exhaust that is not perfect from the factory, an aftermarket exhaust will also not be perfect.  However, with the exhaust clamps that we use there is plenty of room for adjustment. STILLEN Nissan GTR Exhaust Each connection consists of one pipe that has been cross-cut and stretched to accommodate another pipe inside.  This slip joint connection allows for a tight and secure fit when the clamp is tightened, closing the stretched pipe around the internal pipe.  With this setup we have plenty of room for adjustment and no chance of leaking or mis-alignment. STILLEN Nissan Titan Exhaust

Ease of Installation of Exhaust System

Each STILLEN exhaust system is manufactured in close tolerance fixtures and jigs.  There is one master part for each fixture that is constantly put into the rotation to ensure that the fixture and all parts coming out of the fixture are perfect and identical.
