For nearly 30 years STILLEN has been working very closely with dealerships around the world. Many dealerships recognize the benefits of being able to offer their customers the ability to personalize their new cars and make sure that the customer can not only enjoy their new car, but have the satisfaction of knowing it is even more special due to the personal touches made to the car.
Infiniti of Melbourne truly “gets it” and they’ve been customizing new cars for their customers for years now. STILLEN has supplied them the necessary parts that allow their customers to add the finishing touches to accentuate these great Infiniti Q50 platforms. The latest creation coming out of Infiniti of Melbourne is this 2020 Infiniti Q50 RS400. This particular example features the striking Q50 iridium blue finish and after the modifications made to the car has affectionately been dubbed “spiderman” by its new owner.
Exterior modifications on the car consist of STILLEN poly-urethane front splitter and rear diffuser. Vossen HF5 wheels in anthracite finish accented by red wheel locks. Exterior modifications are tastefully rounded out with a 15% window tint. Wanting to bring the STILLEN body kit closer to the ground and those fenders truly wrapped around the Vossen wheels the team at Infiniti of Melbourne installed a set of RSR Down Suspension System lowering springs. The finishing touch to wrap off an elegant build is the INFINITI illuminated front emblem. making sure every who sees this rocket in the rear view mirror will know what is coming up behind them.

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.

The 2015-18 Subaru WRX is one heck of a car, once again delivering on Subaru’s winning recipe for all-wheel-drive fun. As with every Subaru of the last 20 years or so, enthusiasts are feverishly modding 15+ Subaru WRX’s.
In their zeal to throw parts at it as quickly as possible, the FA20DIT engine has developed a reputation for being notoriously finicky among Subie lovers. In particular, the issue is that many aftermarket intakes cause a Check Engine Light or worse, resulting in quite a few ‘horror stories’. All the ‘horror stories’ have created the impression the motor will blow up if you look at it wrong. While that’s a wild exaggeration, there is some truth to the fact it’s fairly easy to hurt these motors.
Longevity with a performance car like the WRX can be a concern, so that’s why we wanted to take this opportunity to do a Long Term Review of the performance of our Hi-Flow Intake for 2015-2018 Subaru WRX to see how it really held up in the real world.
Dean’s WRX runs a basic COBB AccessPORT for tuning and datalogging, a KILLER-B Intercooler, as well as the prototype STILLEN Exhaust for 2015-18 Subaru WRX (currently in development), and that’s about it.
Dean’s WRX is not ‘wildly modded’ by any means, and it’s worth saying Dean doesn’t drive like your grandma – he also enjoys spirited driving in the Rex. After 2 years of normal commuting and typical maintenance, Dean’s WRX is still running great – no check engine lights, and the motor has not exploded. Furthermore, it still makes every bit of the power it did 2 years ago.
Given the FA20DIT’s ‘reputation’, that’s remarkable. The OEM airbox is rather restrictive and could really be in virtually every regard, airflow, sound – which is part of why our intake was able to safely achieve 30WHP gains.
This really highlights the value of the work we put into developing our performance parts here at STILLEN. When we were designing the STILLEN Hi Flow Intake for 2015-18 Subaru WRX, we wanted to create an intake that delivered power safely and would work well with the OEM ECU.
Dean tells us that around town, the intake sound remains fairly subtle until you tip in the throttle, offering an intoxicating and rich boxer four intake note, yet is still quiet enough to have a conversation with passengers. Given the power gain, longevity and sound level of this intake, this intake is a great option for any commuter WRX or any WRX enthusiast chasing horsepower.
That’s another quality we strive for in our performance parts- we aim to offer subtle, refined tones in our intakes and exhausts that sound GOOD, avoiding obnoxious drone and unnecessary noise that can take away from enjoying a car.
After dozens of prototypes, we settled on a shielded design that retains the factory air duct – the end result being a walloping 30whp / 32wtq peak gain. That’s one of the perks of doing all of our manufacturing in house – since every STILLEN intake is manufactured right here in Costa Mesa, CA, we’re able to produce and test numerous prototypes to fine tune diameter and design for safe, reliable, consistent power.
We wanted more than just “peak numbers” with this system – by carefully tweaking the airflow, we were able to make a huge dent in that infamous FA20/FA20DIT “torque dip” between 4300-5500 RPM that normally takes the fun out of things, offering a huge improvement in usable power across the entire rev range.
Considering that our intake delivers huge power, nearly eliminates the infamous torque dip and won’t cause a CEL, we’re not just blowing hot air when we say the STILLEN 2015-18 Subaru WRX Cold Air Intake is quite possibly the best intake for FA20DIT WRX models. The only question left is – why don’t you have one yet on your ‘rex?
