C'mon Triple- you've got all the dollars. Why don't you be the 1st Armada owner?
I'm strapped right now. House poor. I need furnature for an additional 10 rooms and we just got a week at Killington. I'm also shopping Z06. All in due time. I want to eventually get this thing into the low 13s without Nos. Scare some small children and furry animals. :D

Well, what ever happened? Any pics, dyno. Inquiring minds want to know. Or maybe he intalled on Saturday and his engine blew up on Sunday. That would be embarassing. :confused:

Decided to check for myself. Pretty bad news huh. Keeps slingin' drive belts. Hope Stillen works it out.

Last I saw, they had figured out he had an incorrect spacer on a pulley and it was working great. I'll check again. ;)

After checking, the guy is still having problems. A couple are fine, but he's popping belts. The big problem is he did it himself, so he doesn't have a shop to fix it for him for free. I thought this would be a PITA if he did it himself. :comphead:

Looks like both of the guys are having issues ( There are two Titans in doing this install in parallel) Both are chewing belts on some level and one has had to grind stuff down? Sorry but after 6K worth of kit, ain't no way I'd be grinding anything but the gaskets off the manifold maybe.... Stillen is really in a prediciment, these forums are seen by many influencial eyes, would be a shame for the out come to be anything but extraordinary!!

How would this install really work on a mada though? Allot of the folks in the titan forum are already speaking about the rear ends and fragging them in no time, we don't even have the same rear end as the titan do to the independant suspension in the rear correct? Something to think about.

Shouldn't be a problem for our rear ends. The Titan has had rear problems but not the armada. Not sure why, but its the case. I believe Nissan changed the fluid, diff cover, and may have made some internal changes in '05 in the diffs. Somehow the way the independent suspension vs solid axel has spared our rears the titan problems. As for the SC problems, this is why you don't do it yourself and you have a tech do it. The kit is still very new and now we know may have a few bugs. A good tech can get past the bugs and will warranty the work. I'll give them some time to fix the kit but remember, they are the first with our kit, so that means they are workng from scratch. I'm sure it will sort out in the end. ;)

Shredding the belt. It seems there are alignment issues with the pulleys. ;)

The dual inlet hood is nice, the single one doesn't appeal to me much, but the just MHO. Even better is if they are function ram air!!

They are nonfunctional fiberglass replacements. Stillen is working on the problem, but it hasn't been solved. Probably manufacturing tolerances on either their or Nissan's part are off. They will probably need to go to a way to custom adjust the pulleys, like spacers, to fix the problem. ;)

You can only do so much with a mule. I am sure all their test trucks were working great. It is easy to overlook seemingly insignificant issues that you find out once you go "commercial" Happens all the time with software. The key is whether they satisfy the customers 100% and adjust their product, which certainly seems like a no-brainer.
