Stillen just came out with one. Titan guys are debating if the price is too high and power too low. I would be interested if we can get a 50%+ increase and have it installed for under $6500. I'm going to wait to find out some additional information, results and see if any other SC come to market for comparison like the fabled Nismo one seen at SEMA, promised to us, and then never seen again or maybe a Vortech or ProCharger.

$6,500! That is one serious mod.
I guess you get what you pay for.

No 50% gain - about 80 HP. That's expensive horsepower!

Exactly. However, the HP gain is off the rear wheels. At the flywheel, its more like 100 hp. Also, Stillen offers 4 different grades of supercharger for the G35. This may be the basic package, with different levels of boost, etc. available above it for a couple hundred bucks more. Looks like a 6 psi boost type. You could probably go 8-9 PSI if you make it premium only for example and get another 40-50 hp from it.

Allow me to plagurize from a TitanTalk member:
Stillen had this to say about the s/c:

RESPONSE FROM STILLEN -

This is in regards to the recent Stillen Supercharger issues discussed here on the forum. Please understand that this project is nearing completion but performance numbers and pricing must remain preliminary at this point and is subject to change.

At present, our Research and Development team is in final tuning stages of the system. Our preliminary power numbers (as registered on our Dynojet dyno at the rear wheels ) at this point stand at 387hp and 418 torque. This is an increase of 110 hp and 84 ft/lbs over stock at the wheels. (For comparison purposes please note that these rear wheel numbers equate to 425 hp and 475 ft/lbs at the flywheel.)

Also, its important to note that we have tested numerous production Titans from Nissan in order to get a firm base line to judge against for stock performance. What we have found is that stock Titan horsepower numbers have varied from the mid 260s to mid 270s. We are using one of the higher base lines we've found, hence our data moving forward will state increase against a base of 276.

On another related note. The STILLEN systems not only provide the stated gain in horsepower, but the system has been developed to provide "through the powerband" increases, not just upper end. This has been true with all of our supercharger systems. The STILLEN superchargers will also offer an optional 3 year 36,000 mile ENGINE warranty along with CARB pending status until such time as we receive CARB certification.

Look for more detailed information on our website at www.stillen.com in the next few days.

I'm in wait and see mode. :hmm:

Very expensive upgrade.Sounds to me like you are paying for the Stillen name.I wonder if that price would include intercooler and heat exchanger.Does anyone know what the transmissions are good for horsepower and torque wise?How about the driveline and fuel systems?That would be a sweet ride if you could put that power and torque to all 4 wheels.

Improves the fuel system including fuel pump and new injectors, has an intercooler, and new ECU. Titans were having problems with their rears but I haven't heard of any with ours which are different. Comes with an optional warranty for 3/36,000 included with the price to fix anything engine wise that is damaged and related to SC if installed by licensed Stillen dealer. I would hope our drivetrains could handle this as they are designed to tow 9000+ but I don't know for sure. :hmm:

No doubt you'd have to go with a Dana 60 rear end..don't know how that would work with our independent rear suspension. Anybody?
