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

May 26, 2017

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. Most recently released is the highly anticipated twin turbocharged VR30DDTT, the STILLEN Hi-Flow Intake w/dry filter for 2016-2018 Infiniti Q50 + Q60  (402856DF) and STILLEN Hi-Flow Intake for 2016-2018 Infiniti Q50 + Q60 (402856).

STILLEN Product Announcement: Edelbrock E-Force Supercharger x Eaton TVS R2650 Rotors

Edelbrock EForce R2650_1

Edelbrock announced the release of its E-Force Superchargers that now feature the new Eaton Gen VI R2650 TVS rotor pack for 2015-2017 Chrysler 300 + Dodge Challenger + Charger and 2015-2017 Ford Mustang 5.0L. Compared to the TVS R2300 rotor pack used in previous E-Force Supercharger kits, the R2650 rotor pack is 15-percent larger, yet it does not impact the overall supercharger dimensions, allowing it to continue to clear your stock hood without modifications.

Eaton TVS R2650 Rotor Pack Features:

  • Larger bearings and thicker timing gears for durability
  • Pressure relief ports in the bearing plate for reduced friction
  • 170 degree twist vs 160 degree twist on the R2300 series
  • Delivers 25 percent more air flow at 18,000 rpm and 14 psi boost compared to the R2300 series
  • More efficient, requiring 18 percent less input power compared to a competitors 2.9L design
  • Eaton TVS rotor packs are designed and manufactured in the USA for the best quality

These systems also utilize the Edelbrock exclusive DP-3C intercooler design which features 45 percent more surface area compared to the previous design. This allows the system to achieve lower intake air temperatures for improved power output and more tuning options such as spark advance. Together, the TVS R2650 and DP-3C are the ultimate forced induction combination for your high performance HEMI or Coyote equipped vehicle.

Port City Nissan x STILLEN 2017 Nissan Maxima

IMG_3297

Nissan has put the “sport” back into its original “four door sports car”, the Maxima. After unveiling the Sport Sedan Concept early in 2014, it built up anticipation for the eighth generation A36 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).

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 Spoiler Extension for 2016-2017 Nissan Maxima and the STILLEN Stainless Steel Dual Axle-Back Exhaust System for 2016 Nissan Maxima (504399) to add a more aggressive look and sound to the Maxima. The chassis was then outfitted with Giovanna 20-inch Haleb wheels before dropping the chassis on 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 News: STILLEN VR30DDTT Intake Now 50 State Street Legal

402856_IMG_01_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_3

STILLEN News Flash! The STILLEN Short Ram Hi-Flow Intake w/ Dry Filter for 2016-2018 Infiniti Q50 + Q60 (402856DF) 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.

STILLEN Event Tracking: Z ATTACK 2017

Nissan North America moved from Southern California to Franklin, Tennessee back in the mid-2000s. This move to the east centralized Nissan Headquarters and made the facility more accessible to fans and followers of the marque. The location of the new headquarters happened to be within two hours’ drive from the members of the Middle Tennessee Z Club. Co-founders Robert “Bob” McGehee and Randy Shemin approached Nissan North America’s public relations division and worked out the details to hold its Z ATTACK Car Show at the corporate headquarters.

The Z ATTACK event drew 83 Z cars and a dozen Nissan/Infiniti vehicles in the new Open class at the Saturday car show. McGehee commented, “Unlike the favorable weather we enjoyed at our 2014 event, foul weather forced us to relocate to Nissan’s parking structure where enthusiasts could enjoy the opportunity to catch up with other Z owners and admire a wide range of entries. We had entrants from Virginia, Georgia, Alabama and Kentucky, and from as far north as Illinois and even Canada. They all said the trip was well worth the effort.”

The weekend kicked off Friday with group tours of the Nissan manufacturing plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. That evening, the Middle Tennessee Z Club hosted a barbecue dinner and a private tour of the Lane Motor Museum. The Lane houses many significant vehicles in the Nissan Heritage Collection which are not available for viewing by the general public.

In conjunction with Nissan’s ongoing corporate support of non-profit community organizations, the Middle Tennessee Z Club collected donations which were shared with Lifehouse Animal Refuge and Rehabilitation in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Lifehouse is a small agency that works to find forever homes for abandoned and abused animals and rescues dogs whose time has expired at kill shelters.

Nissan videographers filmed the event for a future video and interviewed several attendees as part of its ongoing efforts to honor the heritage and recognize the enthusiasts who are ambassadors for the brand. This will be shared with Nissan staff at headquarters and manufacturing employees in Smyrna and Decherd, Tennessee.

 STILLEN Product Announcement: STILLEN 16+ Infiniti Q50 3.0T Cat-back Exhaust

504450_IMG_07_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_carbon_tips

It’s no secret that turbocharged engines thrive when allowed to breathe. Naturally-aspirated engines rely on some back pressure to create a scavenging effect to help maintain exhaust gas velocity. By contrast, turbocharged engines and particularly, the turbocharger(s), function most efficiently when the exhaust offers the least amount of possible resistance.

504450_IMG_01_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_carbon

When Infiniti released the Q50 and Q60 with its new twin-turbocharged VR30DDTT engine, a new chapter in the performance passenger car segment had begun. Drawing on its experience with the VR38 engine that powers the mighty GT-R, the sturdy and underrated VR30 engine relies on its twin Garrett turbochargers to generate boost pressure. When allowed to breathe, the turbochargers really come to life.

IMG_0128

 

STILLEN’s recently developed Short Ram Intake System (p/n 402856 & 402856DF) has already proven to help produce incremental gains of over 20 horsepower and 33 lb-ft torque to the wheels. Employing years of engineering and manufacturing experience, along with hours of testing on its in-house Dynojet Dynamometer, STILLEN proudly presents its Cat-back Exhaust System for the 2016+ Infiniti Q50 3.0T Silver Sport and Red Sport (p/n 504450, 504451, 504452).

504450_IMG_02_2016_UP_Infiniti_Q50_carbon

In the quest for the greatest gains possible, STILLEN engineers worked tirelessly to optimize this exhaust system. After several design revisions and numerous prototypes, this Cat-back Exhaust improved output with a best incremental gain of 21.37 horsepower at 4,750RPM and 23.94 lb-ft torque at 4,780RPM.

IMG_0123

The STILLEN Cat-Back Exhaust System features T-304 stainless-steel construction for corrosion resistance and durability, along with slip fit connectivity for weight reduction. The 3-inch mid-pipe mates to the catalytic converter and splits into two 2.5-inch axle-back mufflers. The mufflers terminate in your choice of three different exhaust tip finishes, including carbon fiber (p/n 504450), stainless steel (p/n 504451) and burnt stainless steel (p/n 504452). The bolt-on exhaust tips enable you to adjust the tip position for a proper fit no matter what bumper or aero you choose to run at the back. You can also purchase the other tips separately in the case that you want to change up the look of your exhaust.
