unsure how legit tt website is, but if it's really us$820 for a brand new gruppe m, tt's quite the steal! direct from gruppe m japan after conversion is about us$1300 for comparison.

when in doubt, check bbb.org

and if that doesn't work (which it doesn't in this case, lol), be sure to order with your Amex card or any credit card that has buyer protection!

that thing messes up your car. Ask Jim Millet, it will cause problems.

Never had a problem with my GruppeM

I did notice the first 15 miles or so after installation the car was a little jerky,
But after that there was a noticeable difference in pull from the engine on WOT,
I do have the ESS tune however and I remember Roman saying the tune adapts to new mods such as intakes and exhausts so that could have been what happened,

Now the car runs smooth and I love the look, sound, and feel of my GruppeM

I actually coated the inside with gold foil to block heat, but I think its more for aesthetics as gold foil generally goes on the outside of things, Still looks unique





(also replaced the blue silicone coupler that comes with the kit to this black one as suggested by Ron Stygar, The blue was just so out of place)

seriously killer price. do note a k&n recharge kit will be needed to keep the filter well-oiled every 5000 or so miles. want to chime in tt i'm more than satisfied with my gruppe m, even if it is a very steep bit of kit. it certainly adds depth and volume to the s54's growl, and i've noticed an improved throttle response after giving the dme a few days to completely adapt. i can't comment on any power gains, however, since i did not do a before/after dyno for this. then again, power gains would probably be minimal, at best.

I think a Gruppe M can be justified at $820, $480 for the AFE, so $340 more for CF and that awesome growl. Rather than $800 more.

I agree. 820 seems a lot more reasonable (still, a bit pricey for what it does or rather, doesn't do). I remember seeing J's Racing stuff for the S2000 going for 1400, but that was proven to add power. I wish I could this intake in person though; if it's as good as people keep saying it is, it could be worth it. Ha.
