One of the most popular Forced Induction kits for the Nissan 370Z and Infiniti G37 is the Stillen Supercharger kit featuring the Vortech V-3 Supercharger. With it's ease of install, affordability, available warranty and being California CARB/SMOG complaint, there are plenty of reasons why people select this kit.
Over the years we have seen a lot of these kits, for upgrades, tunes, and maintenance. Really we only hear one complaint, it needs to make more Wheel Horsepower. Different pulleys, fueling, impeller and even swapping out the Vortech unit for larger supercharger, all get the job done. However, with all the options one stands out as the best dollar per horsepower upgrade.
SOHO Motorsports Air to Air (A2A) Upgrade:
Our Air to Air upgrade, replaces the Water to Air intercooler and piping. We build these specific to your vehicle to ensure fitment and maximum efficiency of our intercoolers. Since building our first turbo kit for 350Z in 2012, we have continued to improve and use our knowledge to out perform our competitors. Our intercoolers offer large high quality cores, in house fabricated end tanks and brackets, and superior fitment over the competition.
With the improved air flow, and consistently lower intake temperatures you are able to increase fuel, timing and boost to regenerate more horsepower. In many cases ourselves, and other tuners/shops have seen over 550 whp on 93 and and over 600 whp on E85.
Currently the highest WHP we have seen on this kit is 667 WHP with E70 fueling. We run a slightly modified version of this kit on a 926 whp Built motor with a Votech V7 supercharger unit.

Things to note before purchasing:
What's the difference(s) between buying the Stillen Supercharger kit and then purchasing the upgrade versus buying the SOHO Kit from the beginning?
The SOHO kit will come with the SI trim Vortech V3 blower where as the Stillen kit will come with the SCI trim Vortech V3 blower. We offer 1050 injector dynamics injectors and a 340lph fuel pump for the additional fueling. Where the stillen kit offers 600cc injectors and a 255 fuel pump which will need to be upgraded when upgrading to the Air to Air setup.
Now for some of the cons with this kit. The biggest con for some people is the intercooler bolts to what would be the factory crash bar location, and due the size of the intercooler there is no real way to make it fit. We do offer a "bash bar" as upgrade to provide some increased protection in this area.
You'll find that as you increase the air flow with this kit you will need more fuel than the stock Stillen kit comes with. We do inform customers you will need to upgrade both your injectors and fuel pump to meet the fueling demands of this kit. Depending on your boost level, we also recommend that you look into adding a fuel return system to your car for safety and reliability. We do offer the injector and fuel pump we recommend as an upgrade to your kit, or you can purchase these are even larger one on your own or through your installer. If you have questions or would like to purchase different options with your upgrade or kit feel free to contact us.
If you are in California this upgrade has not been tested by CARB, and there are currently no plans to do so. Like all our products, this is sold for Off-Road use only and we can not comment on how this may affect SMOG/Inspections in your state. Simply put we do have smog stations in North Carolina, and it wouldn't be cost effective at this time to attempt this certification.
