Cobb is more powerful, but not by as much as you might think. You give up 25% of the ppk smoothness for 25% more power gain. Take your pick.

FWIW, I have the PPK and I'm very happy.

Thanks for the reply, im leaning towards COBB because my 335 don't have the aux oil cooler needed for PPK so the price goes up drastically considering i would need that for PPK.

In my honest opinion, COBB is a much better choice. you get more value for your money. it is easy to install/uninstall. you can use it to log and most importantly you have expandability for the future.

my 2cents.

Depending on your upgrade path, you'll need an oil cooler at some point.

Not going to go that far with mods, just want some extra power over stock.

Ppk is very underrated , it is a nice improvement over stock, but clearly cobb is better value since you can pick up a v2 for 699

Cobb is the superior option, especially if you have any desire to further modify the car down the road. But honestly for a tune only car, any of the popular options are nice and all have their own positives, PPK certainly included.
