An intake will not give much power unless you are fully bolted on, and even then it's minimal.
You know that the turbo works at his best with low temp intake air

It is pretty simple:

OPEN intake: nice sound
CLOSED intake: stock performance, temp better stabil
UPGRADED CLOSED intake: possible higher performance

For me upgraded intake comes after dp, exhaust, fmic,...
