Just listen to a Lancia Fulvia 1.3 on webbers, its sounds all raspy like an angry hornet, it gives the feeling and thrill of speed even when its not really that fast, keep your licence clean too, so its up to you but i think a remap and decat silencer might be better than a cone filter.
For a real thrill it has to be a 2.0ltr twinspark, feels like a hot hatch from same era, and with silenced decat sounds just the same as an old alfa twincam on carbs, really rorty and raspy..Alfa's twincam is a gem...
Although i like the existing air box as it came from the factory,i find a cone filter makes a sucking sound that doesn't appeal to me...maybe a sports filter in original box (dry type, not oiled) may give a better sound and keep engine happy inc Maf...
A 1.6 in a sportwagon is always going to struggle a bit anyway..
