We’re happy to hear that STILLEN has completed development on these beefy looking sway bar upgrades for the GT-R. These feature a 28 – 31% stiffness increase over the stock items but also feature 5-way adjustment. This gives the owner a great opportunity to fine tune the handling of the GT-R.

Adjustments range from slightly stiffer than stock to extremely stiff which according to STILLEN really keeps the car flat through the turns.

A great way to handle some of the GT-R’s tendancy to understeer, they’re available now for $1049. Check out the STILLEN website and product page for more details and ordering info.

Adding to their growing lineup of quality tuning parts for the Nissan GT-R, STILLEN have announced a new cat back exhaust system. Manufactured entirely from hand tig welded 304 grade stainless steel, it cuts the fat off the stock stainless system by ditching exhaust note dampening mufflers and ends up 27% lighter. That is, 30 lbs versus the 41 lbs for the OE version. The polished rear section leads to four attractive looking 5″ outlets and all up the system is $2,475.

The ideal match for the light weight cat back system is a resonated y-pipe and STILLEN also have you covered there with the new release of their STILLEN Secondary Cat Delete Y-Pipe. Again manufactured from hand tig welded polished 304 grade stainless it features dual resonators to keep the drone down and flex joins to guarantee durability. It’s 47% lighter than the factory item thanks to the removal of the secondary catalytic convertors. This one sells for $768.25.

The end result is lighter exhaust with a race car exhaust note which is exactly what the GT-R needs to bring it to life.

Stillen Front Urethane Lip for Nissan GT-R

Having one of the best known names in the US car culture brings with it big expectations and today we’re happy to announce that STILLEN have not dissapointed.

Some of the first Nissan GT-R parts we’re able to let you guys know about are now released in the form of a front lip spoiler and side skirts. The team at STILLEN have gone to great lengths to get not just the look of these parts right but also the function and the materials they’re made from.

Using 100% polyurethane these body parts are flexible and durable and can take almost any punishment a race track – or driveway – can dish out.

The front lip extends the front spoiler two inches to increase downforce at the front and give a canard effect off the flared sides. The sideskirts also have a ledge extending out 2 inches which has been proven to improve downforce in circuit racing and in wind tunnel testing.

Loads more details in the official press release details you can read after the jump, or just enjoy the photo gallery and installation video provided by STILLEN below.

Stay tuned for more parts coming soon from STILLEN.

Stillen Release AP Racing Rotor Upgrades for GT-R

January 14, 2009 Comments off

Cost effective brake upgrades don’t come around every day on the Nissan GT-R. When you have 380mm rotors standard clamped by massive Brembo calipers it has to be something pretty great to be considered an upgrade. Stillen have been working with AP Racing on putting together something that does just that though.

These AP Racing rotors feature an improved, track oriented design which is more suited to extreme temperature conditions without the cracking commonly being seen on the standard drilled rotor. The curved vein design manages heat better under stress as well.

Priced at $1,169.75 USD per pair this makes for a cheaper option than paying RRP for a set of OEM Brembo rotors if yours are worn or cracked. Your standard hats are re-used but new attaching hardware is supplied for that price.
