Nissan 370z Nismo Stillen Generation 3 Ultra Long Tube Dual Cold Air Intake Kit Install

DSC07963

This week at Velocity Factor, we installed some brand new Stillen Dual Cold Air Intake. The customer wanted some more gain in performance on his Nissan 370z Nismo. The customer was was not disappointed.

If you are interested in improving the performance or appearance of your car, please feel free to contact us.  Our number is 561-395-5700. We are open Monday-Friday 10:00-6:00EST, and Saturday 12:00-4:00EST.

Nissan 370Z Dual Intakes

STILLEN was the first national tuner to introduce a high flow intake for the Nissan / Infiniti VQ37 cars. Our first short tube intake provided a small gain in power with a great sound. Economical and easily installed, this Generation 1 Short Tube Intake became instantly popular. Some months later we introduced our Generation 2 Long Tube Intake, featuring polished tubes, even better sound and a power gain over the Generation 1.

DSC07964

Our continuing dedication to getting the maximum performance from each vehicle has led to the introduction of our new Generation 3 Ultra Long Tube Intake for the 370Z. This intake has a radically new design that provides dramatically better power than any intake on the market for the VQ37 equipped vehicles. Our R&D team went engineered and dyno tested more than 50 variations before being satisfied that this system is the best that can be made for the VQ37 engines.

DSC07966

The new Gen 3 Ultra Long Tube Intake places two large K&N filters in front of the radiator. Strategic placement of the filters allow for optimum cold air flow and easy filter removal for cleaning. It features additional polished tubes that pass through the front core support, larger air filters than the Generation 2 unit. On some applications such as the G37 a urethane splash guard is included in the kit to help protect the filter. This is only necessary on vehicles with larger grill openings from the factory. All kits feature a system of varied diameter tubing and steps to maximize air velocity.

DSC07965

The power result: A dyno-proven 17.5 horsepower on the 370Z. This translates to an estimated 20-22 horsepower gain at the flywheel! No other intake for the VQ can match these power gains!

DSC07965

Recommended installation requires removal of the front fascia clip (not absolutely necessary for some vehicles, but significantly aids in ease of installation) and slightly enlarging the holes through the front core support.

  • 17.5 Rear Wheel horsepower gain
  • Ultra Long Mandrel Bent Polished Aluminum Intake
  • Genuine K&N air filters with 1,000,000 mile warranty
  • Easy to follow step by step instructions
  • Great sound with no drone
  • Installation requires mild enlarging of core support
  • CARB Approved – E.O. #D-436-21

At Velocity Factor, we often do full performance engine builds.  A fully built motor is a great way to maximize power, add strength, reliability, and take your performance to the next level.

Velocity Factor is your source for South Florida Engine Building.  We can build the engine in your Evo, STI, MazdaSpeed 3, or whatever other car you drive.  We have experience building 4G63, EJ25, MZR, and many other motors.

The pictures above show a 4G63 Eclipse turbo motor.  The expected power output is 500hp.

For this build, we are using forged parts from JE, Carrillo rods, Ferrea 6000 Series valves, GSC springs, ARP head bolts, and metal head gasket.  In addition to using these premium components, the head has received a port and polish job.  The engine build is then fully balanced and blueprinted, then torqued to spec by our trained and talented technicians.

To give the engine bay a touch of class and an attractive appearance, the valve cover has been custom powder coated with a candy blue finish.

If you or anyone you know are interested in taking your car’s performance to the next level with a professional engine build, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.  Our number is 561-395-5700. We are open Monday-Friday 10:00-6:00EST, and Saturday 12:00-4:00EST.
