Titan

The Nissan Titan has a lot of strengths, but as countless owners know, one of them is not the factory OEM radiator.  It’s combination of aluminum and plastic end tanks do one thing really well, and that is crack, dumping all of the engine coolant, leaving you helpless and stranded.

950-77345 & 77346

Plastic endtanks failing is nothing new, they’re less expensive for OEMs than an aluminum unit, but long term, those plastic endtanks are a recipe for failure. When those plastic endtanks inevitably crack and fail (cos they will), it sure sucks – for most that meant getting towed to the dealership, paying upwards of $600 for a new radiator and you’re on your way right? Well sure, the first time… and then it happens again, the plastic end tanks crack and void the contents of the cooling system on the ground below. By the way, coolant isn’t exactly cheap – and it keeps getting pricier every year.

STILLEN has long offered the solution to the headache of constantly-failing Nissan Titan radiators for years, designing and having CSF Radiators produce an all-aluminum 2-row performance radiator, which has been a lifesaver for Titan owners stuck replacing their radiators over and over again – but we’re always looking to make things even better and we’ve improved things once again!

Meet the Premium High-Performance Aluminum Radiator

Nissan Titan Radiator

In 2013, a brand new drop-in replacement Premium High-Performance Aluminum Radiator for the 2004-2013 Nissan Titan, Armada and Infiniti QX56 features a 3-row thick core, and holds twice as much coolant as the factory radiators!

The construction is all-aluminum, and designed to improve reliability, airflow, total cooling and also comes with an internal transmission oil cooler just like the OE unit.  The Premium High-Performance Aluminum Radiator for Nissan Titan, Pathfinder Armada and QX56 is designed as a factory-style replacement for ease of installation, featuring drop-in fitment like the factory unit, and backed by a 3-year warranty.

Even with all of these improvements for the 2013 version, we were able to keep the price identical to the CSF 2-row version! For those on a budget or just want exact OEM replacements, we also offer an OEM Style Replacement Radiator for Titan as well.

GOT RUBBER?

You know, your Titan’s getting older – and rubber doesn’t really age well. If you’re already in it for a radiator, it’s a great time to replace your hoses as well. Your OEM Rubber hoses are probably dry-rotted pretty good by now, so it’s great preventive maintenance. Available as a 6-piece kit with Upper & Lower Radiator Hoses, Reservoir Tank Hoses, Water Hose, and Thermostat Assembly or as a 3-piece kit with just the upper and lower radiator hoses and Water Hose.

Dealership Profile: Melloy Nissan x Rough Country Titan Lift Kit

Rough Country 6in Lift + N-Fab Cab Length Step Bars (Black)

As any enthusiast knows, people gravitate toward vehicles that stand out, and aftermarket products can personalize a vehicle to stand out from the unmodified masses. For some buyers, these upgrades could very well influence their purchasing decisions, especially when the upgrades are available installed at the dealership.

That’s why many dealerships choose to offer customized and modified vehicles as part of their new car stock, giving them that ‘extra something’ to draw the attention of potential buyers.

Melloy Nissan of Albuquerque, New Mexico understands this quite well, and having an already-customized vehicle on the showroom floor gives customers something tangible to look at instead of having to imagine the vehicle ‘as it could be’. One of the most popular upgrades for Titan fans is the Rough Country 6″ Lift Kit for 2017 Nissan Titan [H61] 4WD (87820), which is why offering new Nissan Titans with this kit already installed is an especially enticing prospect for new truck shoppers.

Rough Country 6in Lift + N-Fab Cab Length Step Bars (Black) + Rough Country Pocket Flares + Rough Country Black Series LED Light Bar

Offering Nissan Titans with Rough Country lifts installed has proven so popular, it’s almost hard to keep up with the demand, according to the Parts Manager Jorge Nanez, who had this to say:

“As soon as the sales department gets another batch of Nissan Titans in inventory, they immediately send a couple of them over to the shop to be modified. Displaying upgraded vehicles always gets buyers’ attention. Even if customers do not jump at the chance to buy the showroom model, they are inspired to modify their new vehicle in the same way but in their own choice of color and trim package. We have sold over 15 Rough Country to customers since they became available, and that does not even include the demo models that sell off the showroom floor! We are preparing six more demo vehicles, each being set up with a Rough Country 6″ Lift Kit for 2017 Nissan Titan [H61] 4WD (87820)Rough Country Pocket Fender Flares for 2017 Nissan Titan [H61] 4WD (87820), and Rough Country Black Series LED Light Bar for 2017 Nissan Titan [H61] 4WD (87820). The New Mexico state fair is coming soon and our plan is to display our modified Titans at the fair!”

Installing a Lift Kit not only makes the Nissan Titan look better, but a proper lift can seriously enhance your off-roading capabilities as well as a part of your build.

STILLEN’s network of dealerships not only share the STILLEN product line with its customers, they also offer products from STILLEN’s extensive catalog of brand partners!

With the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD, Nissan looks to jump back into the fray of the highly-contested pickup truck market.  Shooting for a nice balance between the efficiency and livability of a ½ ton and the performance and capability of a ¾ ton, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD could serve as the “Mama Bear” option to buyers shopping around the offerings of other more-established competitors.  In other words, it seems just right.

 

The Cummins Diesel is Coming for You, Big Three!

What really makes the 2016 Nissan Titan XD stand out is the all-new Cummins 5.0-liter turbocharged V8 diesel engine sitting pretty under the hood (yes, we said a Cummins diesel).  A Cummins diesel brings a level of heritage, performance, and reliability to the new Titan, much like it did for Dodge a few decades back.  All in all, the engine produces 310 HP and a whopping 555 lb-ft of torque.  That – combined with an AAM 9.84-inch rear axle and a 3.916 gear ratio – helps give the 2016 Nissan Titan XD the ability to tow nearly 13,000 pounds or carry over 2,000 pounds in its bed.  Pretty impressive stuff, if you ask us.

The new 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit from ICON Vehicle Dynamics give the truck a powerful stance.

 

The Key to Success

A big key to the future success of the new 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a flourishing aftermarket presence.  Luckily, Nissan appears to be actively supporting its consumers’ desire to modify their rides.  Earlier last year, Nissan invited some major players in the aftermarket truck scene to a Titan “measuring session” to help aid them in manufacturing future accessories.  Well, we have now begun to enjoy the delicious fruits of this labor with an all-new 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit from ICON Vehicle Dynamics!

 

An Icon in the Business

ICON Vehicle Dynamics is one of the world’s premier performance suspension manufacturers.  They specialize in aftermarket suspension components for trucks, SUV’s, and pure off-road machines.  ICON’s products seek to improve your vehicle’s drivability, handling, and general performance in real world situations.  Their new 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit is certainly no exception to this rule.

 

2016 Nissan Titan XD Lift Kit from ICON Vehicle Dynamics

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit by ICON Vehicle Dynamics offers improved ride quality both on and off the road and an approximate 32% increase in wheel travel over the stock configuration.  It features adjustable coilovers that provide 2-3″ of lift height as well as vehicle-specific tuned front and rear shocks that deliver excellent shock damping and control.  The 100% bolt-on 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit ranges from Stages 1 – 3:

Stage 1 SystemIncludes ICON 2.5 Series coilovers, 2.0 Aluminum Series rear shocks, rear lift blocks, and u-bolts.  The Stage 1 setup is ideal for drivers looking to enhance their truck’s capabilities for normal road driving (as well as the occasional weekend off-road session).

ICON Vehicle Dynamics 2016 Nissan Titan XD Lift Kit - Stage 1

Stage 2 SystemIncludes ICON 2.5 Series remote reservoir coilovers, 2.5 Series rear shocks, uniball upper control arms, rear lift blocks, and u-bolts.  The Stage 2 setup is perfect for the driver looking to make significant improvements to their Titan’s capabilities both on and off of the road.

Stage 3 SystemIncludes ICON 2.5 Series remote reservoir coilovers with CDC (Compression Damping Control) Valve technology, 2.5 Series rear shocks with CDC Valve, uniball upper control arms, rear lift blocks, and u-bolts.  The Stage 3 2016 Nissan Titan XD lift kit is the system of choice for those looking to upgrade their truck to perform ideally in any situation they may encounter.

A Titan Amongst Giants?

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD has some pretty stiff competition in an already-saturated pickup truck market.  However, the emergence of a strong aftermarket support system – starting with this new ICON Vehicle Dynamics lift kit – may be just the push the Titan needs to help it really live up to its name.

For those who find themselves dreaming of the great outdoors, Nissan has your solution: The 2016 Titan XD, which conveniently goes on sale tomorrow. To ease your restless spirit with the promise of many adventures to come, the 2016 Titan XD comes with 555 lb-ft of torque, durable frame and integrated towing features. See below for some of our favorite features and more vehicle information.

2016 Titan XD

Cummins Diesel Engine

With a two stage Cummins turbo diesel engine that produces 310 HP and 555 lb-ft of torque, this Nissan Titan brings the power and provides solid performance across the entire power band. Additionally, Nissan’s engineers made sure to address the two biggest complaints consumers have historically had about diesel vehicles – being noisy and dirty. Utilizing a compacted graphic iron cylinder block, which is stronger and lighter than traditional iron, and dual overhead camshafts, Nissan was able to greatly reduce the noise and vibration typically associated with diesel engines. Additionally, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD Cummins diesel engine comes with a diesel exhaust system, which has a particulate filter and selective catalytic reduction that allow it to run clean and reduce noise.

As you would expect, the STILLEN R&D team is already dreaming up aftermarket performance parts for this vehicle. Be on the lookout for power-adding intakes and exhausts in the future!

Solid Design

The new Titan is rough, rugged and ready for anything with a high-strength steel frame. Not only is the frame solid, but its other components are equally as durable. It comes with chassis and brake parts from the Nissan Commercial vehicle program. For those looking for even more performance, you can be sure STILLEN will be hard at work developing big brake kits and the like for these trucks.

Get Out There: 2016 Titan XD Towing Features

Whether you’re towing your boat, toy hauler or trailer, the 2016 Titan XD comes packed with innovative features for you to get out there and enjoy.  Check out the list below of features this Nissan Titan offers:

  • 12,300 lb. maximum capacity
  • Integrated trailer brake controller
  • Trailer Sway Control (TSC)
  • Tow/Haul Mode with Downhill Speed Control

It’s no secret that Ford, Chevy and Dodge pretty much have the truck market on lockdown and leave little room for any of the other automakers. However, Nissan is making a move to gain a foothold in the US truck market with the introduction of the new 2016 Nissan Titan, which was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show this week. Now, the question on everyone’s mind is can the Titan compete?

 

When the Titan was introduced in 2003 it was met with great excitement and lots of fanfare. The truck had class leading performance and was readily adopted by truck enthusiasts looking to personalize these trucks with their own unique styles. Unfortunately, nothing has really changed on the trucks since their original unveiling. In 2007 the engines received a small tweak to increase power and efficiency via variable valve timing. In 2008 the front end was “updated” with a new front bumper and grille. Other than that it’s pretty hard to tell a 2004 apart from a 2014, both from the outside and on the interior. The 2016 looks to have completely broken the mold of its predecessor and seems to be much more competitive with current production full size trucks. In some areas, the new Titan is even eclipsing its competitors.

Maximum Towing Capacity 12,000 lbs.+ 10,700 lbs. 9,800 lbs. 10,340 lbs.

American Made Truck

Although Nissan is a Japanese auto manufacturer, for all intents and purposes the new Nissan Titan will be an American made truck. It is designed specifically for American truck buyers with the core planning, design, engineering and assembly taking place in the US. As the Nissan website says, “American Titan – Designed in California, Engineered in Michigan, Tested in Arizona, Built in Mississippi, Powered by Indiana and Tennessee.” Without being an US based company, you can’t get much more American than that.

 

We had the pleasure of touring the Smyrna, Tennessee assembly plant a few years ago and we were blown away by the attention to detail taken on each vehicle. Not only the detail of the assembly line workers, but the overall quality. NISSAN has multiple check points through their assembly process and if a vehicle does not meet necessary quality standards, it is removed from the line and sent to appropriate parts of the facility for correction. We actually witnessed entire trucks being re-worked in the paint correction facilities as they had not been approved for the next step. It was very impressive to say the least!

Big Power

With 310 HP and 555 lb/ft of torque, the 2016 Nissan Titan Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo diesel engine is a beast, especially when paired with the new Titan’s half-ton pickup design. Not only does the Cummins turbo diesel engine provide drivers with significant power, but it also has a two stage design, so you won’t have to worry about turbo lag and can enjoy solid performance across the power band. We are already putting together our plans for an intake, exhaust and other performance parts for the 2016 Titan, we’re sure there is hidden potential there and you can be sure we’re already brainstorming how to squeeze every last drop of power out of this truck!

 

This Truck Can Tow!

Not only does the Cummins 5.0L V8 turbo diesel engine provide the 2016 Nissan Titan with a lot of power, but it provides a lot of potential – for towing! To utilize the 2016 Titan’s power, the Nissan team engineered a gooseneck hitch right into the frame. For the skeptics out there, Nissan is reporting that the new Titan was able to haul more than 5 tons during initial testing. We can’t wait to put the new Titan to the test hauling Steve Millen’s 75 car to and from the track to see how it performs!

 

Upgraded Suspension

While few specifics have been released, Nissan has indicated they have made significant improvements to the Titan’s suspension including a reinforced and tuned double wishbone front suspension and a more rigid back suspension with bigger leaf springs and overhauled leaf bushings. Of course, if future owners don’t think this will be enough or just want to level their truck, we happen to know where they can talk to some truck experts for recommendations and pick up some aftermarket parts to upgrade their suspension.

 

Improved Braking System

With all that power and towing potential, the 2016 Nissan Titan’s braking system is of utmost importance. To compensate for the increased power, the Nissan team beefed up the braking system. However, for those that want even more peace of mind, whether it will be a full on brake kit or just aftermarket rotors and pads, expect a STILLEN solution to be available.

 

Updated Cosmetics

While we love power and performance, we understand how your truck looks is just as important. Keeping with its counterparts, the 2016 Nissan Titan maintains the same boxy look that is popular with many trucks on the market today. If you want to customize your truck, we’re sure there will be many options for you ranging from aftermarket grilles to nerfbars to bumper kits allowing you to get the look you want.

When Can I Test Drive the 2016 Nissan Titan?

By now, you’re probably wondering when you can get your hands on a 2016 Nissan Titan to try it out for yourself and see how it stacks up against the F150, Silverado and Ram. Nissan has not announced a specific release date, but have indicated that it will be available in late 2015. Until then, keep checking back for more information about the new Titan and as always, feel free to give our experts a call at (866) 250-5542 with any questions you have.

Customer 3 Year / 85,000 Mile Titan Supercharger Review

fillup gives his impressions on the kit, and how it has held up over the years:

I have now had my Supercharger for around 3 years and have managed to put 85,000 + miles on it. I have driven in every type of conditions imaginable from Living in Aspen to Working in Yuma and Spending way too much time in LA. My mileage has been 65% highway with rest in heavy urban environments.

I have owned a wide range of all motor and F/I vehicles. ranging from 360 AWHP Scooby’s to a 450+ RWHP Z’s and numerous all motor lead sleds. This however was my first modified truck.

As has been said the only thing better than power is more of it and the s/c has definitely delivered. The truck has a fairly linear torque curve with good power available from 1800 to 4500 rpm. The superman appeal of going from tire melting head jerking power to mild mannered truck is nice.

Another member RyTan adds:

Nice, I have had mine on for coming up on two years, and about 20,000 miles, and I have not had any real issues other than some belt squeak. Looks like a good installation can really be the deal maker for this add-on. Its good to hear from someone who has had a positive experience with their SC. Knew there was a risk when I put it on, but was willing to accept it. I feel that Stillen did a good job of maximizing what they could do safely without destroying the tranny, cats, etc. I am very curious to see what they have up their sleeve for the stage 3 upgrade.
