UUC Corsa Exhaust on e92

The M3 I bought (08) has a UCC Corsa exhaust on it. I can't find any information online about if there are any performance/horsepower benefits to the exhaust or if it just makes the car SOUND "aggressive only when you need it."

Has anyone heard of this exhaust?

Yeah that's the site I found too. Looks like it's just a sound enhancement with no HP increase...

You won't find many cat backs that provide power. It's just for more bark.

I believe the exhausts that increase the HP do so by running 100-cell catalysts, which allows less restriction (and less emission scrubbing) versus the OEM cats.

I have this system on my E36 M3. Although the performance gains are minimal, it sounds amazing.
