New Product Announcements

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.

So if your stock 2016 Maxima doesn’t quite “Take Your Breath Away”, STILLEN, has your six…teen covered.

The 2016 Maxima performance and styling products are proudly Made in the USA by expert craftsmen at the STILLEN hangars in Costa Mesa, California.

STILLEN combines best in class automotive parts and accessories with expert service to deliver personalized lifestyle solutions for automotive enthusiasts seeking power, performance and style.

STILLEN is proud to announce the 2011-2014 Nissan Juke all-wheel drive rear sway bar is now available.  The STILLEN 2011-2014 Nissan Juke AWD Rear Sway Bar is rear mounted and offers more rigidity than the factory rear sway bar to aid in cornering and vehicle stability.  STILLEN has designed this sway bar to be stiffer than the factory bar which will allow for better turn-in, rotation, and overall improved stability when pushing either a Nissan or Nismo Juke hard through canyon roads, on the track, or even trying to get to work in the morning!

A common complaint on all wheel drive vehicles is the experience of “understeer.”  Understeer is where you are driving the car spiritedly and the car doesn’t want to rotate through the turn.  Instead the front tires just “push” or “under steer.”  By stiffening the rear suspension, the chassis will be more planted and allow the car to rotate better which gives drivers a more positive feel as they accelerate through turns.

STILLEN Rear Sway Bar.
The STILLEN sway bar for the AWD Nissan & Nismo Juke is:

•    Made out of high-tensile strength steel.
•    Incorporates precision laser cut end link brackets.
•    Finished in a brilliant red powder coat finish.
•    Protects against corrosion and wear & tear.
•    Designed to keep the underside of the car looking great!
•    Backed with a STILLEN lifetime guarantee!

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.

** Individual results will vary based on the baseline of the stock engine, type of dynamometer used, temperature, elevation, fuel and various other factors.

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.

In the past year STILLEN has shipped supercharger systems around the world. Fantastic reviews and reports are coming in from:

  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • Russia
  • Thailand
  • Korea
  • Canada
  • Switzerland
  • Taiwan
  • France
  • Unite Arab Emirates
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • United Kingdom

Not to mention all of the kits that have been installed with great success across the United States at Nissan/Infiniti dealerships and performance shops. This is a bolt-on system, capable of being installed by any qualified ASE-certified automotive performance shop, or at hundreds of Nissan and Infiniti dealerships across the country, or right here at STILLEN at our in-house install facility.

Once again, STILLEN has successfully accomplished all of its goals with another great forced induction solution for the Nissan/Infiniti vehicles.

STILLEN 3.7L Supercharger System Features Include:

  • Vortech V-3 Centrifugal Supercharger Unit
  • STILLEN purpose designed cast aluminum intake manifold with long runners for increased torque
  • Installs under the stock hood – No modifications needed
  • Complete system includes pre-assembled Vortech V-3 supercharger assembly, air intake with polished air charge pipe and genuine K&N intake filters, fuel injectors, air-to-water intercooler, UpRev ECU Tuning cable/software and detailed installation instructions.
  • Optional 3-year/36,000 mile powertrain warranty
  • Made in the USA
  • 50-State Emissions Legal (E.O. Number D-436-17)

The STILLEN Camaro SS Lip Spoiler adds aggressive styling while keeping the flow and design of the new body style.  Set your Camaro apart from the rest with this bolt-on lip!

We gave you the heads up earlier this month that we were in development of the STILLEN Protective Skid Plate for the new 2012 DBA-R35 GT-R’s, and we’re proud to announce that these have been completed and are now shipping!

Here’s the product text from the STILLEN website:

It’s every GT-R owners worst nightmare, scraping the front bumper on anything from driveways, dips, speedbumps, and pulling into that parking spot with the raised curb and making contact.
.
STILLEN has developed a urethane Skid Plate which protects the OEM fascia and paint from scrapes and light bumps. This piece is specifically molded to the GT-R’s front bumper, and installs with 3M automotive acrylic foam tape and self-tapping screws to the underside. Durable urethane construction ensures no cracking, and doesn’t require painting, although can be color matched if desired.
.
As with all STILLEN urethane body components, these are proudly designed and made in the USA at our Costa Mesa, California facility.

STILLEN is proud to announce the availability of the VQ37 supplemental warranty for the STILLEN 500HP Supercharger System!

The VQ37 Supercharger supplemental warranty program is available as a 3-year/36,000 total mile term (whichever occurs first), with liability coverage of up to $8,000.  This coverage warrants engine components (including the STILLEN Supercharger), transmission and rear axle components.  The supplemental warranty is valid in the United States and Canada, has a $0 deductible, and is available for $395.

One of the biggest concerns we hear from our customers is the worry of voiding their warranty with the use of aftermarket parts, and we’ve outlined some information in previous posts regarding this subject, and with the combination of an engine/drivetrain warranty, can give solid piece of mind.

For more information, please contact your STILLEN representative at 866-250-5542.

One of the more popular products we make for the Nissan GT-R has been the polyurethane Protective Skid Plate, and with the changes to the new 2012 GT-R’s front lip, this required a new skid plate to be designed. Proud to announce we are in final development of the new version for the new model!

Here’s a sneak peek inside the STILLEN modeling shop located in Costa Mesa, CA, and shows the final piece test fitted on the car before we sent it into mold preparation.  The final production part will be black urethane, sprayed with a black matte paint, and can also easily be painted to match any specific color if desired.

The skid plate is designed to protect the extremely expensive front fascia from scrapes and light bumps. It follows the specific contours of the car, and installs in just minutes with everything needed supplied.

We are in full swing with the 2012 Nissan GT-R, and are also nearly finished with the Front Lip Spoiler, as well as the Aerodynamic Side Skirts which are also available for the 2009-2011 GT-R.  Look for more information soon.

We’ve also been doing product fitment on other STILLEN items, such as our Cat-Back Exhaust System, Secondary Cat-Delete Y-Pipes, Stainless Steel Brake Lines, AP Racing rotor upgrades and much more!

Last month we brought you the information on the new high end Goodridge Phantom Gstop Brakelines, and as these are arriving soon, we wanted to get the word out, and get these in the hands of our customers, so we’re giving away 2 sets for free!

Simply head over to the STILLEN Facebook page, give us a ‘Like’ and you’ll have access to the entry form on the Sweepstakes tab, just pop in your information and you’ll be entered to win.  We’ll be picking a winner on April 15th, and again on April 30th!

The Phantom Brakelines are new from Goodridge, and are designed to replace the factory rubber brake lines on your car, improving safety, reducing stopping distances and deliver a much better brake pedal feel, just like the popular Goodridge Gstop Brakeline kits.  The Phantom series upgrades the hardware and fittings to stainless steel, features a black coating on the stainless steel lines, a beautiful upgrade, and we couldn’t encourage our customers more to consider upgrading your brake lines if you haven’t already, it’s an inexpensive upgrade that has huge benefits.

Good luck!  You can read the full giveaway rules here.
