2016+ Nissan Altima 3.5L V6 Axle-back Exhaust

508321_IMG_06_2016_UP_Nissan_Altima_Axle_Back_Exhaust

Nissan gave its fifth generation Altima a facelift for 2016, which includes revised front and rear bumpers, new headlights and taillights, and a refined interior. During the summer of 2016, STILLEN answered with a revised splitter and rear diffuser to complement the enhanced and striking lines of the Altima. STILLEN furthered its development of the revised Altima, offering its latest axle-back exhaust system for the 2016-and-newer Nissan Altima 3.5L V6 (p/n 508321).

STILLEN’s stainless-steel axle-back system for the Altima features mandrel bent T304 stainless-steel piping welded to resonated stainless-steel muffler sections. The stainless-steel muffler tips can be adjusted to match the rear fascia and is a great complement to the STILLEN urethane diffuser (p/n KB13158MB). If you’re looking to make more power, STILLEN also offers its Hi-Flow Intake kit (p/n 402875).

STILLEN News: STILLEN Cold Air Intakes Receive A.R.B. Exemption

May 26, 2017

 

402856_IMG_01_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_3

 

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.

IMG_6976

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.

402962

Obtaining an Executive Order from the A.R.B. involves prototyping and testing to prove that our STILLEN Intake Systems do not affect the vehicle emissions control devices. Periodically, we resubmit and update our product listings with new products as well as updates to existing part numbers and additional qualifying vehicle applications. STILLEN’s most recent release included the highly anticipated VR30DDTT Intake System for twin turbocharged 2016+ Infiniti vehicles (p/n 402856, 402856DF).

STILLEN News: STILLEN VR30DDTT Intake Now 50 State Street Legal

402856_IMG_01_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_3

STILLEN News Flash! The STILLEN Short Ram Intake for 2016+ Infiniti vehicles equipped with the twin turbocharged VR30DDTT engine have received C.A.R.B. Exemption and are now 50 State Street Legal! These intakes are now legal for sale in California! Order yours today!

402856_IMG_01_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_Q60_intake_Overall

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.

402856_IMG_02_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_Q60_intake_Cover_off

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.

402856_IMG_04_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_Q60_intake_filter

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

KN Camaro Intake Clipped

 

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.

Logo

 

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.

KN Camaro Intake Installed

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.

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 offers an axle-back exhaust system 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).

Highway to the Danger Zone!

So the perfect pairing with the axle-back exhaust is a STILLEN cold air intake system. 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 Rear Diffuser 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 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 splitter 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.
