Hello,

I guess you all know that COBB and CPE are making the inlet pipe for our car

For me, they look the same. The good thing vs RMPC inlet that they come with the silicone to keep air colder.

what do you recomend?

what are the size of each inlet?

I have the cp-e nano intake, i guess i should go with CP-E.

If you want to see them, check this link

Thank you.

2 difference that I know of:

1. CPE has a metal nipple for the vacuum tube vs Cobb's plastic.

2. Cobb has a metal mounting tab vs Cobb not having a mounting tab

other than that they are both the same so only you can decide which one deserves your money.

Found some more...

3.  Looks like Cobb's has a smoother size transition going to the turbo (I don't know if this would be better but it's just something that's different).

4.  CPE's metal couplers are rolled.

CPE also offers inlets to fit stock or aftermarket turbos, as well as stock airbox or their own Nano intake (3" inlet)

Cobb comes in blue or black. CPE just black.

Cobb is four lettets, CP-e is three plus a dash.

OR both cobb and cp-e have 4 characters so just another way they are the same.

Cobb is 2.5" tapering down to the turbo.
CP-E is 3" tapering down to the turbo.
That's why it looks like the Cobb has a smoother taper.

The CPE sri is a 3" diameter and the cobb inlet is 2.5, so with just those two peices it wont fit together as I understnad it. I'm sure you could adapt it with a different peice of silicone pipe it you wanted.

I've got the opposite... cobb sri but ordered the CPe inlet. Want to trade SRIs?
