I have the GruppeM intake, as well as the Tubi Rumore exhaust. WOT sounds ridiculous from the intake, although performance gains are fairly minimal. Some people have reported 10hp increases, and others 2hp, so it is more for looks under hood and sound.

I love the exhaust, as it sounds exotic and unique to the car. I'd say more like a Maserati GT than a Mustang. Plus, it's made across the street from the Ferrari factory, so I was sold.

Gruppe M or any intake for that matter does not add any sound on this car. It is the high-flow cone filter that gives you extra sound, which you can do with the stock box. The OEM box is already opened through the top of the hood and thus lets all the intake sound out through there, making it quite aggressive! Also the OEM filter size is already HUGE and with a oiled free flow filter you will have all the benefits of any aftermarket intake.
