STILLEN VQ35HR 350Z & G35 Supercharger Now Available

STILLEN 07-09 NISSAN 350Z SUPERCHARGED SATIN (4)

STILLEN is proud to announce the availability of the 2007-2008 350Z supercharger kit for the dual throttle body VQ35HR powered Nissan 350Z.

350zsupercharger_0006

This STILLEN supercharger system took over a year to develop and involves revolutionary designs to offer customers easy upgradability and installation.

STILLEN Nissan 350 HR STILLEN SUPERCHARGED (10)

With this supercharger system, power for the 350Z and G35 is boosted to 450 horsepower at the crank (or 360-375whp), and this system won’t give you a hard time when you need to smog, because these kits are CARB Exempt. Thanks to that CARB Exempt EO#, this means when smog – or inspection – rolls around, your car is 100% emissions legal. Since California is the strictest state in the union when it comes to emissions, if it passes CA standards, it probably will pass your local regulations. (Be sure to check your local laws to ensure you’re compliant anyways)

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.

On the dual throttle body VQ35HR engines found in 2008-09 Nissan 350Z and 2008-09 Infiniti G35, power is slightly lower than the VQ37HR, due to the engine being smaller and the fact that VQ37HR has VVEL whereas the VQ35HR does not. Power output is typically around 450 horsepower to the crank (stock is 300hp to the crank), which ends up working out to around 360whp, in most cases.

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.

We put hours of testing and development into ensuring this kit performs as well on the 350Z and G35 as it does on the 370Z.

Supercharged Silver 350Z on Dyno-1

We offer this kit in 2 versions – the Tuner Kit, which does not include the tuner cable, tune file or license and assumes you’ve already got those items – and the Tuned Kit, which includes the tuner cable, a custom tune file and tuning support from STILLEN. Available in your choice of Satin, Polished and Black Powdercoated Finishes for the Supercharger and chargepipes.

Edelbrock E-Force 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.

It’s not every day that we release our Nissan 370Z demo car into the wild but when the guys from The Smoking Tire asked to stop by and take the car for a spin we had to oblige!  Matt Farah has been here before and went for a spin with Steve in the team STILLEN GT-R Targa rally car.  During that visit Matt saw the 370Z in multiple pieces as it was receiving the STILLEN treatment.  After multiple phone calls, emails, and text messages we were able to schedule a visit for Matt to get into the drivers seat of a STILLEN tuned 370Z.

 

Or check out the video at TheSmokingTire.com.

This car has been reworked from the inside out and from front to back.  With KW Variant III coil overs, STILLEN adjustable sway bars, SPC adjustable control arms, AP Racing brakes, Enkei GTC-01 wheels and Toyo R888 tires, STILLEN 370Z Cat-back exhaust, 370Z supercharger (CARB EXEMPT EO# D-436-20 and warrantied) to the STILLEN 370Z Bodykit In Urethane along with the Seibon carbon fiber hood.

All of these upgrades work together brilliantly to create an extremely capable and devastatingly quick Z. The 370Z’s notoriously underwhelming brakes have been replaced with a high performance set from AP Racing. The ride height has been dropped even further using a set of KW V3 Adjustable Coilovers paired with a set of STILLEN Adjustable Sway Bars and Adjustable Control Arms. To help ensure the suspension and brakes can effectively do their job, a set of ENKEI GTC-01 Wheels wrapped in Toyo R888 Tires helps get all 500 ponies to the ground.

This has certainly been the summer of superchargers for the STILLEN performance shop. For as many supercharger installs our ASE certified mechanics have done, none have been better looking than this STILLEN Supercharged Infiniti G37 show car that got a STILLEN polished supercharger for Infiniti G37. From a custom exhaust to carbon fiber body components, this was one very sleek looking car!

STILLEN Supercharger, Seibon Carbon Fiber Body Components & More!

Seibon Carbon Fiber Body Components

The first step in getting this vehicle show ready was getting the Seibon carbon fiber added to its body. From lip to trunk, this Infiniti G37 is decked out in carbon fiber and it looks fantastic! Here’s a full list of the Seibon carbon body components that can be found on this G37:

Seibon Carbon Fiber Specs:

  • Made from grade AA, high-quality carbon fiber
  • Comes with a clear coat and UV coating to protect against fading and discoloration
  • Superior production process yields an impressive carbon/resin ration
  • Hand crafted by expert craftsmen with over 15 years’ experience

STILLEN Polished Supercharger

As supercharger installs go, it’s pretty exciting for the STILLEN performance shop to install a polished blower. Most of our customers are all about the power and less about the looks, so they opt for the satin supercharger. Since this costumer chose to go with the show-quality, STILLEN polished supercharger we were pretty excited to see that beautiful sight it would be sitting in the engine bay and this blower didn’t disappoint – it is exquisite.

Wheels, Exhaust & Finishing Touches

No show vehicle is complete without wheels and a lowering kit and this show G37 is no different. The owner installed a lowering kit and added Stance Wheels for a sleek, custom look. To make sure the car sounded custom too, the owner also added a custom exhaust. Now that the details are starting to come together, we can’t wait to hear how this vehicle does in the shows it enters. Rumor around the office was that the owner was looking to enter it in the Las Vegas SEMA show… We sure hope to see it there and really hope it wins!

While we regularly hold training sessions with our vendors to keep up with their latest product lines and to brush up on their existing product lines, it’s not every day our vendors show up with a red hot Chevy Camaro as their training material. Recently, Magnuson superchargers did just that to introduce us to their new Heartbeat Supercharger.

More Efficiency, More Power

To start out the training, our sales rep reviewed the details of the new Heartbeat supercharger system with us. One key improvement over their previous systems and their competitors’ systems is an improved intercooling system. By utilizing Formula 1 and NASCAR heat exchanger technology to make their cooling system more efficient, they were able to avoid heat soak, bring down the IATs which provides more consistent performance from the new Heartbeat line of superchargers. Here are a few other benefits of this system:

  • Includes a cast aluminum intake manifold
  • Fuel system comes with factory push-lock connectors for an easier installation
  • Kit includes twin dual-pass charge air coolers, coolant circulation pump, heat exchanger and all necessary installation hardware

With all of these upgrades, you’re probably wondering, as we were, “How much power does this system actually make?” Looking at the Magnuson Heartbeat supercharger for 2008-2013 Chevrolet Corvette, you can expect over 900 HP at 10-11 psi with this system. This is more than 25 HP than their previous system and 46 HP more than their competitors’ systems were able to produce in independent testing.

Seeing the Heartbeat Supercharger in Action

After hearing all of this, we were excited to see the Heartbeat supercharger in action. That’s when we were able to get a sneak peak of one of their systems that will be available soon – the Magnuson Heartbeat Supercharger for the Chevy Camaro! This particular system was installed on a new 2014 Chevy Camaro SS 1LE. We couldn’t get specifics, but it is rumored that this kit has been tested to produce 500+ hp to the wheels!

Our friends at Nissan Lloydminster are at it again with another souped-up Titan. The goal of this project truck was to make it powerful and fast to leave other trucks in its dust… They definitely met their goal with this Titan! The list of upgrades on the Nissan Lloydminster truck is impressive and is definitely enough to turn any enthusiast’s head!

Adding Horsepower to the Souped-Up Titan:

To get the horsepower they were looking for, the Nissan Lloydminster team started by replacing the stock intake with a STILLEN Hi-Flow cold air intake. They also removed the stock exhaust and added a STILLEN 503257 dual exhaust. Not only do these upgrades improve horsepower, but they also help improve air efficiency. However, these changes were not enough for the Lloydminster Nissan team… They wanted more power! To accomplish this, they decided to supercharge the engine with a STILLEN 407570 supercharger, which has brought the power on similar Titans up to 379HP at the wheels. Now, this Titan can really haul!

Note: Dyno results will vary based on temperature, altitude, and other environmental factors.

Don’t worry though, this Titan didn’t just get a STILLEN power boost. It also got several other upgrades to round out its makeover. Other upgrades made include new wheels and tires, lowering shackles, transmission mount and chrome billet grille.

STILLEN is proud to announce that all current production STILLEN superchargers have achieved CARB Exempt EO status through 2014!  For many years, STILLEN has been recognized as the leader in NISSAN/INFINITI performance products and we continue our commitment by continuing to invest in tuning these fine vehicles. Our dedication to the NISSAN/INFINITI vehicles and the pride we have for the parts we manufacture for them shines through with this latest accomplishment.  The new CARB exemption order numbers (EO # D-426-19 and EO# D-436-20) cover all single and dual throttle body supercharger systems for the VQ35, VQ35HR, VQ37, VQ40 and VK56 engines.

Not only is STILLEN the only company to offer CARB exempt performance parts for these vehicles, but STILLEN is the only company in the world to achieve CARB Exempt EO Status when tuning through the factory ECU with larger fuel injectors.  In the past, the only way to achieve CARB Exempt status was with a piggyback ECU.

With the latest extension of CARB Exemption Order numbers, STILLEN is also excited to announce the extension of the powertrain warranty programs already in place for these supercharger systems.  When you purchase your supercharger kit you have the option of adding a 3 year/36,000 mile powertrain warranty.  STILLEN is the only NISSAN/INFINITI tuner in the world to offer this with their supercharger systems.

Note: CARB (California Air Resources Board), a division of the California state government, is widely recognized as the strictest emissions control in the US and is 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.

Since STILLEN signed the agreement with Whipple Superchargers to become the only recognized and warranty certified installer in the Southern California area, STILLEN has been booked solid installing these beauties. The dominant car has definitely been the Chevrolet Camaro, but the latest installation was on this absolutely gorgeous Ford F150 6.2 Liter SVT Raptor.

To say we were excited to get right into the Ford Raptor supercharger install would be a huge understatement, the whole office was buzzing and taking bets (no money was exchanged- just bragging rights) on how much h.p. this beast would pull on the Dyno after the install.

We’ve had plenty of trucks come through the doors here to get work done, but this was the first Raptor, and a heavily modified one at that with a full RPG suspension, cat-back exhaust, LED lights, winch, 37’s, etc.

Ford Raptor Supercharger front engine shot

With the latest technology, the all new Whipple supercharger kit creates more power than any other superchargers on the market and is 100% complete and designed for stock engines, but also has enough capability to work with the heaviest of modified engines. With this in mind, we were expecting the Whipple to add about 25% extra horsepower at the wheel to this truck’s already impressive resume!

After the Ford Raptor Supercharger Install

On the baseline run on the Dyno the truck pulled 360 h.p. at the wheel. After the install, we mounted it up again and this time the results were drastically different!!! The truck laid down 502 h.p., an almost 40% increase.
