I have one and I think the sound is incredible.
That being said, I haven't noticed any performance gains (didn't expect to until I get a tune) and I get maybe .2 MPG better going at highway speeds.

If anything I get worse mileage in the city right now because the sound just sounds so good to give it a little more pull

I dyno the 13 Taurus stock when i got it in 15 and got 282hp, first thing i did k&n filter, got 290hp, next magna flow exhaust 303hp, my next step is some sort of tune should put me well over 350. As far as that study they are talking about, you have to have all of the facts for the filters, K&N filters surpass the two standards that only matter 99 to 100 percent (can never be perfect) of the time which is acceptable for all aftermarket parts for air filtration. ISO-5011 and SAE J-726 are the only test that actually matter when it comes to if the air is clean enough for the motor under your hood.

Starting arounding 3600 to 5000 for k&n, and 1500 to 4000 for magnaflow exhaust, k&n loosened up the response and sound of car. Exhaust, gave the car more off the line grunt. I just want to see if they were a waste or did something. I am totally happy, and many people are shocked as I go by them.

Packing house for a move been looking and cannot locate my info, probably in storage, i remember the curve was still straight and with a even rise over the base for both. Torque 7 ftbls for both mostly in the low range. I just love cruising now, windows down, stereo down, car in sport and the way i go.

Did you have to remap after installing the air filter and muffler?

On a daily driver type car, i wouldn't bother. The gains aren't worth it. If you like the appearance of it, go right ahead. A drop in K&N filter into the stock airbox would be cheaper and probably give you the same result.

Had a freind with a 15 limited put just filter in and end up replacing it with complete cold air intake. Big difference he said, as I said anything to help a 2 ton monster, as far as my dyno, yes in storage, however looking into tune made by a tunner that specialzing in mustangs and fords.. so sometime this summer between 35 and 100 hp depending on octane, intake, exhaust, throttle body adjustment, ect. Will have new dyno then.
