Default Intake

Alrighty. So I've done quite the research when it comes to intakes but am looking for some advice as to what intake is best for me. I dont plan to do much more with my car (engine-wise), just small things, really, but I have the typical NA auto engine. I'm looking for an intake with decent, but noticeable gains. I dont, however, want an intake that is incredibly loud. Sure, I want it to be able to hear it, but I dont want it to SCREAM, if you know what I mean. I dont want it to distort the sound quality of my system, which I'm in the market for a HU, bc of the intake.
So here are my routes...
Cobb CAI - $269 LOUD, Best gains, Expensive.
Ganzflow - $120 Not sure on sound, Decent gains, cheaper.
Ebay CAI - <$50 Not sure on sound, Decent gains, cheapest.

At first, I was like, "Cobb is the way to go." However, after researching and the thread regarding the stock intake with the ebay intake, there was about a 10HP difference. I also looked at the Type R intake, but havent heard many good things regarding it.
Really, what I'm looking for, is a reliable, decent/nice gains, best bang for your buck, intake. Any ideas, comments?
thanks in advance.

EDIT - Agh! -- Meant to put this in the NEWB forum. If you could move this, that'd be great. sorry
