Stillen unveils new supercharger system for Nissan 370Z / Infiniti G37

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 28, 2011

Nissan tuning specialist Stillen has prepared a package for the Z cars that boosts its performance. It has been quite some time before there has been any report about the Nissan 370Z or the Infiniti G37, which makes this offering very exciting. Stillen made a supercharging kit that when added to the 3.7-liter engine, which boosts the output to 500hp.

The tuner claims that the kit complies with the strict California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations and that it is legal in all the 50 states in the U.S.

Furthermore, it is available with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty. It also comes with genuine K&N intake filters, fuel injectors, air-to-water intercooler, and UpRev ECU Tuning cable/software as well as detailed installation instructions.  The kit’s most amazing feature is the Vortech V-3 supercharger, which is linked to a cast-aluminum intake manifold.

The tuner designed this system to be accommodated under a stock hood to make an aftermarket replacement unnecessary.

Features Include: • Vortech V-3 Centrifugal Supercharger Unit • STILLEN purpose designed cast aluminum intake manifold with long runners for increased torque • Installs under the stock hood - No modifications needed • Complete system includes pre-assembled Vortech V-3 supercharger assembly, air intake with polished air charge pipe and genuine K&N intake filters, fuel injectors, air-to-water intercooler, UpRev ECU Tuning cable/software and detailed installation instructions. • Optional 3-year/36,000 mile powertrain warranty • Made in the USA • 50-State Emissions Legal (E.O. Number D-436-17).

The Nissan 370Z has much in common with cars of yesteryears. In particular the classic sports car, the 240Z, with its stretched bonnet and reduced cabin, has overhangs that blend into the frame and a rear that has been lowered to give it that more aggressive edge.

The new 370Z is shorter than previous iterations at just 4.245m and has a 2.55m wheelbase. Its height too has been lowered to a swarthy 1.315m but rather than compromise on headroom, the seats have been adjusted to maximise space and create a car with a lower centre of gravity.

The vehicle is lighter too with the increased use of aluminium in for example the doors and the bonnet, the overall weight has been reduced by 32kg, and all this has been possible due to improvements in the design efficiency at no cost to the overall safety of the occupants or compromises in the 370Z's technological achievements.

These improved equipment levels can be seen as soon as you step inside with Nissan's intelligent Key - engine start button, sport brakes, 18-inch alloy wheels and a limited slip differential. The controls for the stereo and your phone are mounted on the steering wheel for ease of use (with Bluetooth coming as standard rather than an option) and the seats are easily and electronically adjustable for comfort or to give you that racers’ sensation.

GT versions of the 370Z include leather or suede seats (heated and ventilated), only the best BOSE system, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, cruise control and the new, improved Synchro Rev Control technology which eases hill starts should you wish it.
