I've run aFe filters on several cars, both oiled and dry -- I even had an aFe open-filter CAI on a MINI that I had absolutely zero issues with, even on a 6,500-mile road trip. That's the brand I use if I use an aftermarket air filter.
(I don't run one on my 718, mainly because I can't easily access & maintain it on my own.)
Cobb's filter is likely a rebranded model by some other maker.
Don't expect better performance with any aftermarket filter-only solution. Just do it for the higher 'ceiling', better filtration, and (slightly) higher intake noise.
