2013 Nissan GT-R Testing at Nurburgring

This might be the rumored SpecR version of the Nissan GT-R. A replacement of the Nissan GT-R SpecV, or perhaps a foreshadowing of the actual 2013 car. The rumors say that the 2013 car gets a mild power bump. Maybe 550 hp from the 2012 Nissan GT-R 530 hp? How fast will it go on the ring? Nissan might be dragging out some real R-compound tires to find out.

IDRC Finals October 16,2011

The IDRC Finals are being held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, October 16,2011. Entry to race is $80, Spectators pay just $20. Racing starts at 9am, with classes for everything from fun runs for street cars, to eight second drag cars.

It would be great to see a few more GT-R's out at the events again. It has been a little while since we have done a meet at the event. It seems like most people would rather go to a car show and hardpark, than run their car down the dragstrip.

Fun Run / Shake Down
A perfect time to just enjoy your car on the 1/4 mile drag strip or to do some test passes to see what your vehicle is really capable of.

HEADS-UP CLASSES

TRUE STREET
Looking for real street performance? Check out the IDRC's True Street Class. With all cars running on D.O.T. radial tires, through the mufflers and in "street legal" trim, the IDRC gives the local "Kings of the Street" a chance to become national heroes.

All vehicles in this class maintain factory chassis construction. A minimum class qualifying time of 13.99 must be met to make the qualifying field
ALL MOTOR
Similar to the Quick and Street classes, all vehicles in this class are encouraged to maintain the factory chassis construction. Variations from the factory chassis restrictions will result in additional weight asessments as outlined herein.
QUICK CLASS
The original "heads up" import drag racing class continues to the sport most popular. Pioneered by Turbo and Hi-Tech Performance Magazine, this class has evolved to present leading edge technologies while still maintaining its original purpose - to showcase the performance available from today's production compacts. All vehicles in this class maintain the factory chassis construction. The highly developed quick class rules allow many different makes and models to be competitive in the same class. This allows for manufacturer rivalries, as well as the constant front-wheel drive versus rear-wheel drive showdowns. Competitive cars currently run in the 9's or 10's at sea-level tracks.
PRO-AM ALL MOTOR FWD/RWD

PRO-AM TURBO FWD

SCALE POLICY

All racers MUST scale after every pass. Failure to scale during qualifying means the run will not count. Failure to scale during eliminations will result in disqualification and reinstatement of the losing competitor, providing they also scale and make minimum weight.

Japanese Classic Car Show - 2011 - Long Beach


The 7th annual Japanese Classic Car Show was held at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, on September 10th, 2011. This was my first time attending the show, even though I live in Long Beach, and have for most of the last 10 years or so.  The morning of the 10th was a weird one, as we had lightning, thunder, and even hail. Odd for Southern California, we don't get much hail. At the show there were a number of vendor booths, and cars parked next to the Queen Mary right on the bay, which provides a nice backdrop for a car show.  After the crazy morning, it stayed fairly overcast until the afternoon, and then cleared up to our typical SoCal weather.

STILLEN Obtains 50-State Legal Status for Nissan 370Z / Infiniti G37 Supercharger System

STILLEN Obtains 50-State Legal Status for Nissan 370Z / Infiniti G37 Supercharger System


For over 25 years STILLEN has been recognized as a leader in Nissan/Infiniti tuning. With a history of setting “first time” milestones in the aftermarket for these great vehicles, STILLEN has established themselves as the company to follow when it comes to Nissan and Infiniti product development. STILLEN was the first company to develop the HICAS eliminator system for the 300ZX Z32 platform. When the Z33 350Z was introduced, STILLEN was once again the leader with the first forced induction solution, as well as the first to offer CARB legality, and AGAIN the first with a 3-year/36,000 mile engine warranty.

Well, STILLEN has done it again as Team STILLEN is proud to announce the CARB approval of the Nissan 370Z (Z34) G37 Supercharger Kit.


STILLEN has not only been the first company to achieve CARB legality of a forced induction solution on the VQ37, we have also been the first company to achieve such an accomplishment while tuning through Nissan’s sophisticated ECU with larger injectors. This is a major accomplishment for Team STILLEN and one that will join the many other first time landmarks STILLEN has achieved in the Nissan/Infiniti tuning world.

CARB (California Air Resources Board) is the division of the California state government that controls all aspects of air quality and standards. With standards getting stricter it is getting more and more difficult to achieve CARB legality. CARB is recognized as the toughest emissions control in the country and is therefore 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.

The power the STILLEN Supercharger system delivers is dramatic, taking the factory 3.7L V6 from 332hp to over 500hp! The system is designed to work with both automatic and 6-speed vehicles, including convertible and AWD models.


The STILLEN VQ37 Supercharger features a new cast aluminum intake manifold engineered specifically for this kit, complete air-to-water intercooler system, and boost is derived from a Vortech V-3 Supercharger unit. The V-3 features a quiet V-belt design, and a self-contained oiling system for easy maintenance.

In the past year STILLEN has shipped supercharger systems around the world. Fantastic reviews and reports are coming in from:

    * Australia
    * New Zealand
    * Singapore
    * Russia
    * Thailand
    * Korea
    * Canada
    * Switzerland
    * Taiwan
    * France
    * Unite Arab Emirates
    * China
    * Hong Kong
    * United Kingdom

Not to mention all of the kits that have been installed with great success across the United States at Nissan/Infiniti dealerships and performance shops. This is a bolt-on system, capable of being installed by any qualified ASE-certified automotive performance shop, or at hundreds of Nissan and Infiniti dealerships across the country, or right here at STILLEN at our in-house install facility.

Once again, STILLEN has successfully accomplished all of its goals with another great forced induction solution for the Nissan/Infiniti vehicles.

STILLEN 3.7L Supercharger System 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)
