Default BHP Gain w/ CAI Upgrade: Civic 1.6?

How much BHP should I expect to gain from replacing the factory panel filter with an aftermarket induction kit in my 2001 Honda Civic 1.6? They tell you as a standard response that it's somewhere around the 1-5 mark, but I want to know a precise value if possible, so does anyone have any experience with this or with a similar engine? The last dyno run showed that it's currently running at 108BHP peak, so the engine isn't as tight as it once was.

I gained around 15BHP from fitting a kit to my Golf, but that's with a 3.2L engine, so kinda out of my depth here haha

I'm also planning on either putting a single turbo in the Civic or a supercharger, depending on whichever tickles my fancy. So as an optional answer; what can I expect to see from either of those? Apart from wheelspin...

None, you may even lose some power.

The CAI will give you a gain of 2-5 horsepower in the mid to high range, but you will lose power in the lower RPM range.
