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).

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 Lip Spoiler and Axle-back Exhaust 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 lowering springs. 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 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.

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.

Super Duty Adjustability

Lead

ICON Vehicle Dynamics Coilover Conversion Kit for 2005+ Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty

ICON Vehicle Dynamics invests countless hours of in-house research and development, along with thousands of miles of on and off-road testing in order for its engineers to cultivate a thorough understanding of each development platform. Thus, ICON’s engineers lead the industry when it comes to Ford Super Duty performance suspension systems, shock absorbers and their true capabilities. The latest addition to the ICON Vehicle Dynamics line of Ford Super Duty products includes a collection of 2.5-inch Remote Reservoir Bolt-In Coilover Conversion Kits that add a new level of performance and adjustability to the 2005+ F-250 and F-350 platform.

ICON Parts

The advantage of a coilover conversion kit is that it’s designed to increase the overall damping ability of the vehicle while allowing for user-defined ride height adjustment. The 2.5-inch Remote Reservoir Coilover Dampers featured in these kits are based on ICON’s 2.5 VS Series shock line, which means that Eibach coil springs, FK Rod End bearings and vehicle-specific valving come standard. Quality machined components and a fully serviceable design make for a product that will withstand the test of time yet retain the ability to be rebuilt or revalved as necessary. ICON’s CDC (Compression Damping Control) Valve option adds to the adjustability of these coilover conversion kits, allowing the end-user to adjust the dampening characteristics of the vehicle with the turn of a knob.

ICON Parts Installed
These new 2.5-inch Remote Reservoir Bolt-In Coilover Conversion Kits are available for 2005 and newer Super Duty F-250 and F-350 4WD trucks. Available lift ranges include 2.5-3-inch (Part #61720, 61720C) as well as 4-5.5-inch (Part #61721, 61721C). Each kit is available as an individual component that can be used in place of the ICON 2.5- and 4.5-inch Dual Rate Front Coil Spring Kits, or as a part of several staged systems that have been added to ICON’s line of Ford Super Duty products (contact STILLEN for more information.)

ICON Parts 2
ICON products proudly manufactures its suspension systems in the USA at its Southern California-based facility by a team of passionate off-road enthusiasts. With a reputation for quality, performance, and service, ICON Vehicle Dynamics is the top choice for Ford Super Duty suspension systems and shock absorbers.

KEY FEATURES

  • Bolt-in system fits in OE coil bucket location
  • Ride height adjustable coilovers (2.5-3-inch, 4-5.5-inch)
  • Decreased body roll and improved on and off-road ride dynamics
  • Vehicle-specific shock valving provides unparalleled ride quality and control

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.
