I know you're mostly referring to the numbers and not the experience, but a heavily overboosted, relatively small displacement 4 will never feel or perform like a mildly boosted inline 6 across the rev range. It will likely have significantly more lag, be more "peaky" in its power curve, deliver more NVH (of course) and I would be concerned about reliability/longevity if none of the other components are modified to account for the additional power.

No question a chipped 2.0T will be a cheap performance bargain, but a 2.0T +$500 bucks will definitely not equate to a stock 335i.
