The '15 Mustang 5.0 is just as fast as the old one. Ford stepped up the power to compensate for the weight. As mentioned here all you need is a CAI, DRs and a good tune to run in the high 11s. ...

No it does not make the noise when I push the clutch in, It happens when I am letting out. I hear it mostly when I am not making a conscious effort to drive smoothly or rev match.
