Actually my BMW PE replaces the midpipes which contains resonators so its a little more than just a "muffler" system. Guarantee with my mods my exhaust added 10+hp

Only reason they are there is to make sure your car abides by the law. Your car can sound really good, but make the same amount of hp. On a good day, you'll see 1-2 HP to the wheels. so maybe 3-4hp to the crank.

But its a great exhaust, the exhaust note is great but dont expect much HP.
