Performance in what way? Faster shifts? No, but the ATs are proven to be faster than their MT counterparts (especially out of a dig)

COBB is a complete flash that offers a more in-depth tune. It alters fueling tables, timing, boost targeting. You also get a significantly simpler setup for monitoring your tune/taking data logs. Piggys like the JB4 or PROcede are great, but they do not tune anywhere near as in-depth as a flash tune like COBB

This statement only holds true on the N54 & has kinda been proven to be false after Dzenno@PTF making the most powerful TT N54 utilizing a COBB based tune. His meth system is also self managed, which IMO is a better setup to begin with. The biggest difference is how the COBB vs. Piggys aim for a specific boost psi, but now with the N20 TMAP Sensor the COBB tune was able to fully utilize the RB turbos.
