Jb4 on a car with BMW PPK

I am sure this question has been asked before somewhere, in a search I found nothing.

Debating between PPK and jb4. Considering just having them do the PPK at the port and seeing how I like it. Coming from a 335is to a 435 so looking to get somewhere close numbers wise to my previous car. If I decide down the road I want to add the jb4 to my car with the PPK, is that possible? Any drawbacks? Would I be adding 50-60hp on top of the 335hp I have with the PPK, or would it only be an additional 15-25HP?

Thanks in advance.

My friend got dinan and had many issues with trying to stack a jb4
He eventually paid to have dinan removed.
Not sure but it will likely be the same issues.
That was on a 135

The jb4 will not stack on top of the ppk since the max boost will be the same. In other words, stock + jb4 = the same as ppk + jb4. If you want more power, get jb4 + downpipe

Just an FYI, I went from a 335is to the f30 and it is a dog without the JB4. The PPK will basically turn your F32 into a stock 335is.

but the jb4 will make it even quicker then a 335is I would assume. The 335is was the perfect amount of power for me, never tuned it.

The JB4 will ignore the flash tuning when installed. So whether or not you have the PPK you will wind up making the same power with the JB4. So no reason to get the PPK but also no reason to remove it if you already have it.

I haven't installed the PPK yet, my car will be at the port soon and I was thinking or adding it.

I have the PPK & MPE and it wasn't enough so I got the JB4 with a catless down pipe.

I have no regrets...If I had gone with the JB4 and DP without the PPK, I'd always wonder if I should have just went with the PPK.

I guess it depends on your budget.... The benefit of having both is that if you have any warranty issues, just remove the JB4 & DP and blame it on the PPK.

Interesting take. BMW hasn't perfected the ppk and is dealing with malfunctions, albeit not many. If you have the money, why not?
