Pretty much anybody creating tunes and running test tunes on the dyno will tall you that an intake will do little to no good. With a tune, you'd be luck to get 5hp, and they make noise. If you are getting an exhaust anyhow, the little extra noise may not be a concern to you, but dollar-for-dollar, the intake isn't a great investment. Ford actually did a good job on the intake with their 90-degree airflow ideas they used. On a stock tune, an aftermarket intake actually hurts performance.
Exhaust will help...changing the downpipe is what really gets things flowing.
If you like the fancy screen and being able to watch the gauges, the Edge CTS is the way to go. But really, you're watching digital graphics that really do you no good at all but being something cool to look at. If you weren't to need the screen, check out the Livernois tuner. Great (safe) setup done just for your computer's strategy code. As you make future changes, they can send updated tunes over the internet to you. Rick at Livernois really knows his stuff...they have some of the fastest Ecoboost vehicles around.
Regardless of what tuner you go with, the difference is AMAZING. Ford left alot of power on the table.
Good luck.
