Wouldn't help you off the line, but could potentially provide gains at higher speeds.

More efficient air supply, less resistance on the turbos, less resistance on the turbos, less restriction on the exhaust gasses escaping....

All of this would obviously only be valid if...
1. there is a restriction
2. I knew what I was talking about
Still no.
