The GruppeM Ram Air Intake System was created to improve efficiency by reducing the restrictions of a stock intake. A factory intake system is designed to minimize cost and reduce noise within the cabin, but these tradeoffs also sacrifice performance. To increase efficiency and power, GruppeM has worked to reduce restriction and decrease the intake air temperature. Colder air is denser allowing the intake system to move a larger volume of air and in turn make more power. The shape of the duct and filter are designed specifically to increase the velocity of the air and increase the pressure, while at the same time fitting within engine bays cramped space. Carbon fiber was chosen as the construction material because it is lightweight and strong, making it perfect for high pressure intake air. This special carbon intake duct can provide the best air flow with ram pressure and provides enough chamber effect at peak power.
By reducing the intake's restriction and smoothing the pathway of the air from filter to combustion chamber, the GruppeM ram air intake greatly improves throttle response. Not only is throttle response improved, but the smoother path, reduced temperature, and increased volume ultimately provide the driver with more horsepower and torque throughout the power band.
What separates GruppeM air intakes from other intakes is its carbon fiber construction. Carbon fiber is heavily used in motor sports because of its extreme lightweight and strength. All carbon fiber pieces are made by hand. It is known by automotive enthusiasts worldwide. Not only is carbon fiber lightweight and strong, but its unique weave pattern is much more aesthetically pleasing than the plastic pieces they replace.
GruppeM Ram Air Intakes utilize world famous K&N air filters. K&N air filters are known for their superior flow compared to OEM filters. K&N filters are also washable and reusable. Product may differ from photo.

GruppeM was founded in 1996 and is based in Saitama, Japan. The company develops high-performance auto products, including carbon fiber air induction systems, titanium exhaust systems, stainless-steel brake lines, aerodynamic parts, and engine software upgrades. Its products are designed to work in synergy with a vehicle’s entire system to deliver exceptional performance and aesthetics without compromise.
GruppeM parts are considered to exceed even the highest standards of manufacturing, resulting in performance improvements for a wide array of high-performance car brands like BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. GruppeM’s work is so widely recognized that its products have been featured in several international automotive magazines, project cars, and race cars. In fact, GruppeM parts have been rigorously tested both on and off the track by a number of racing teams across different championships with impressive victories. It’s no surprise that GruppeM is regarded as the premier aftermarket choice for air induction systems and high-performance exhausts.
GruppeM specializes in designing high-flow carbon fiber air intake systems, which are manufactured through a stringent process with strict quality requirements. While intakes are its specialty, the brand now includes a comprehensive lineup of performance exhausts, brake line systems, and carbon fiber aerodynamic elements. All GruppeM products boast top quality, proven performance benefits, and pleasing aesthetics.
What makes GruppeM’s intakes systems so special is the company’s zero-tolerance manufacturing process. It utilizes top-grade carbon fiber composites to dramatically cool intake temperatures and increase airflow through the engine for heightened performance levels. The company’s exhaust systems are crafted from aerospace-grade titanium and T304 stainless steel. The result is a significant reduction in weight and increased horsepower throughout the entire rev-range.
GruppeM’s brake lines are made from carbon steel and stainless-steel components. They are specifically designed to withstand even the harshest racing conditions, making them ideal for high-performance street applications. Lastly, GruppeM offers a variety of performance software, which is developed on the dyno in-house at the company’s Long Beach, California facility using a Dynapack DAQ55 4WD dynamometer. Each individual software application is custom developed to improve power figures through every RPM and is designed to work seamlessly with GruppeM’s intake and exhaust systems.
Whether you are looking to help your car breathe a little better, look more aggressive, or unleash its true power potential, GruppeM has something for you. Vivid Racing carries a comprehensive lineup of GruppeM products, including cold air/short ram intakes, mufflers, bumpers, side skirts, spoilers, mirror upgrades, strut bars, and much more!
