In November 2019 STILLEN was invited by Kia North America to introduce our performance parts and poly-urethane styling accessories to the Las Vegas dealer summit. This was a great opportunity for Kia dealerships to learn about all of the ways they can offer aftermarket accessories by STILLEN to allow their customers to get even more enjoyment out of such a fantastic car.
STILLEN is proud to say that all of the parts on this Kia Stinger are Made in USA in our Southern California manufacturing facilities.
STILLEN® released one of the most powerful cat-back exhaust system for the Infiniti Q60 3.0T. The twin turbo V6 VR30DDTT engine from Infiniti is a very exciting power plant that comes with a tremendous amount of potential and opportunity. STILLEN is excited to get to work tuning this baby GT-R platform!
To start with the development of this Cat-Back Exhaust System, STILLEN created multiple prototype systems. Ranging from true dual to X pipe to Y pipe with varying diameters of tube in each configuration. Having been in the business of developing high performance exhaust systems for more than three decades we have learned that there is no formula or cheat sheet for creating a performance exhaust system. The only way to find out what works best for an engine and vehicle configuration is to build and test.
Having developed a wide range of prototype exhaust systems our engineering team hit the dyno to see which configuration produced the best results. After all of the tests were completed, we were a little bit surprised to learn that the best exhaust system was lying in front of us the whole time. The twin turbo V6 Nissan GT-R favors a dual into single back to dual configuration and after our testing was complete we learned that the Infiniti Q60 VR30DDTT does too. This exhaust system features a 2.5” Y pipe which flows into a 3” mid-pipe. The 3” mid-pipe then carries the exhaust gases to the rear of the vehicle where it branches back into 2.5” dual rear exit.
Upon meeting the rear exhaust pipes the exhaust gases flow through the STILLEN engineered and manufactured mufflers. During our development, the STILLEN engineering team struggled to get the exhaust note “just right” with traditional off the shelf mufflers. This can be a common problem when working on a turbo engine as the turbo acts like a muffler and restricts the engines exhaust note. Our engineering team struggled to find the balance between too loud and too quiet until the decision was made to develop and manufacture our own muffler bespoke to the VR30DDTT platform. STILLEN has been manufacturing their own mufflers in house since 2002 with great success.
After many different prototype configurations STILLEN combined our multiple decades of experience with metal fabrication and poly-urethane manufacturing to produce a hi-flow air intake. We utilizes both processes as well as the factory ducting to produce an air intake capable of providing an additional 25 horsepower and 31 lb./ft. of torque.
Testing began by removing the factory air intake and thoroughly measuring and inspecting the intake tract, factory couplers, turbine housings, and filter surface area. After measuring these key areas our engineering and fabrication team set to work in producing a pair of 3” mandrel bent intake tubes that provide a perfectly smooth airflow path from the air filters in to the turbine housings.
By increasing the surface area of the filter by more than 50% and cleaning up the air flow with less drastic mandrel bent tubing we are able to control the air flow leading into the turbos and improve the efficiency of the intake tract and the turbos ability to draw air.
To complete the air intake a set of poly-urethane shields were created which block off the hot air from the engine bay and prevent this heated air from entering the intake tract.
Unsatisfied with simply developing a kit that fit and produced significant gains in power and torque, STILLEN held the release of the intake until it had been tested for more than 5,000 miles. We worked with a local owner who drives their vehicle long distances and offered the use of the vehicle for durability and long term testing. Here are his thoughts:
“I went on another trip to Phoenix, Sedona, Grand Canyon with the KIA Stinger. Stock I would get a 26 mpg (highest ever recorded stock). But on this trip, I logged the best 32.1 mpg at 90mph I did not get a pic of that, but I did get one of 31.9 mpg at 80 mph with the intake and tune that’s a 6mpg improvement! (long range driving). And when I filled it with gas, I got 375 mi usually it’s around 300-330 mi depends on my driving habits…. this was done on sport mode, that’s all I ever put it on. P.S. I love the intakes especially when boost hits, if I’m next to someone and they hear the intakes most of the time they won’t pull up next to me (intimidating turbo sound, LOL) and it holds up good to the 107 heat in Arizona.”
STILLEN is very excited to enter the KIA market with our poly-urethane body kit, cold air intake, and soon to be released cat-back exhaust. For over 30 years STILLEN has been recognized as a leader in the high performance automotive industry and we are proud to bring our expertise and American Made manufacturing to new communities.

Best Intake: STILLEN Cold Air Intakes Receive R.B. Exemption
Street-legal status equates to being able to smog and register your car with ease while avoiding fix-it tickets and visits to the courts and/or the state referee. This becomes particularly important if you live in California or any of the 49 other States of America that subscribe to California’s style of stringent emissions requirements. Introducing the Best Intake: STILLEN Cold Air Intakes Receive R.B. Exemption for your vehicle.
Developing performance products that achieve street-legal status involve a significant investment of research, development, time and money. To this end, STILLEN prides itself on the engineering time invested to garner measurable performance while maintaining compliance with the standards set forth by the Air Resources Board (A.R.B.). STILLEN employs a Nissan “CONSULT III” diagnostics computer to monitor and log vital data channels to ensure reliable and consistent performance. This means that STILLEN Intake Systems do not require ECU calibration and are a truly “Plug and Play” performance upgrade. No “check engine” lights and no idling issues.
Infiniti breathed some forced induction life into the Q50 Sport and Red Sport models with the inclusion of its all new, twin turbocharged VR30DDTT V6 engine. Conservatively rated from the factory with 300 horsepower (in the Sport) and 400 horsepower (in the Red Sport), these new “Q’s” make decent power off the showroom floor. However, like any turbocharged engine, reducing air flow restrictions allow the turbochargers to spool up more quickly while efficiently generating boost pressure. This translates into improved response, greater incremental gains and oftentimes, more peak power.
As a longtime specialist in the world of Nissan and Infiniti, STILLEN takes great pride in the engineering of its products. Having seen the performance potential in the new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6, our engineers set out to develop an intake system that produced the greatest performance gains without triggering the dreaded “Check Engine Light” error or requiring a custom tune.
Unlike any other intake manufacturer, STILLEN’s longstanding relationship with Nissan helped to facilitate a genuine Nissan factory CONSULT diagnostics computer. Monitoring data channels that most in the aftermarket cannot, STILLEN engineers tested more than 20 different intake designs, evaluating numerous variables and noting the effects on specifics such as fuel trim, velocity and temperature, to name just a few. While the sheer number of prototypes might seem like overkill, the data collected enabled STILLEN to optimize the intake design for output and presentation.

K&N Uncovers More Horsepower from the 2016 Camaro SS 6.2L
Chevrolet’s Generation V 6.2-liter small block V8 provides the 2016 Camaro SS with immense performance and surprising efficiency. The push rod, two valve-per-cylinder LT1 V8 generates 455 horsepower. It is similar to the LS family of small-block engines but features a unique aluminum block casting and cylinder heads, oiling system and an aggressive 11.5:1 compression ratio. It also incorporates advanced technologies such as direct fuel Injection and continuously variable valve timing.
An entirely new intake manifold design was developed to provide a straighter path into the combustion chamber. Although GM engineers invested in the development of the LT1 there is still room for improvement. K&N developed its AirCharger air intake system (p/n) 69-4534TP for the SS to significantly improve incoming air flow as well as reduce turbulence in the intake tube. This intake has been chassis dyno-tested to deliver an estimated 15.16 horsepower gain over stock and can be installed in 90 minutes or less with simple hand tools. In addition to more power, this air intake system improves engine sound with a more aggressive and deeper tone during acceleration.
The air intake includes a chrome capped K&N high-flow air filter within a heat shield that replaces the original airbox space. The oversized conical air filter is manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, which offers less resistance than traditional paper filters. Air then passes through an aerodynamically-verified polished aluminum intake tube into the engine’s throttle body. The intake tube includes fittings for the factory mass air flow sensor and crank case vent hose.
The only maintenance is a service you can do yourself at intervals of 100,000 miles (depending upon your driving conditions) using the K&N 99-5000 recharger kit to clean and refresh your air filter in preparation for another 100,000 miles of driving. This filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
The K&N 69-4534TP cold air intake is designed for both the 2016 and 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS 6.2-liter V8.
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.
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?
Nissan designers visited the Blue Angels for inspiration and ideas they incorporated into the redesigned 2016 Maxima. Not a bad day in the office!
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.
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).
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
