Default Stillen 370Z supercharger installation

Just completed installation on my Z with auto trans. My facial expression while driving now alternates between a huge grin and abject fright. Hard to believe the difference that little spinning compressor makes in acceleration, yet the car is as docile under normal conditions as when I bought it

I'd be a raving advocate for the kit, but for the facts that Stillen chooses to avoid mentioning that a fiber optic scope is required for installation of the intercooler manifold, and that the instructions assume you were in on developing the kit and have done at least 3 identical installations previously.

I make my living using words, so wrote a set of instructions supplementing Stillen's, accompanied by photos I took during installation. Using them, a good DIY mechanic could complete the installation much more easily and quickly than without them. I'm not certain I can upload them here, but, if not, will determine how to provide them gratis to anyone about to actually purchase the kit, and/or begin an installation.

post it, videos of 370z supercharged?

My old tuner did 2 set-ups, they look very clean and straight forward. I didnt think it was a PIA to do this

Are you going to pass smog? I have heard nothing but terrible things about the 370 kit... the 350 was bad enough... at least they used a Vortech for the 370. Good luck!

We just finished up a Stillen S/C kit on a 09' 370 with header back exhaust with test pipes. Car made just over 415 rwhp. Customer loves it and we are waiting to hear back on a pulley upgrade from Stillen to make more power.

As soon as we get the new pulley, it will go back on the dyno for a custom tune which we will make a video of along with all of our builds we do.

Ok, makes sense then. It should pull around 455whp with the 9psi pulley. That's where mine is at.

Looking at a kit for sale online for a good deal. Just wondering if you think if this kit would work with a 350Z HR?
