Stainless Steel exhaust on a 1.8 MPI 159

Hello all.
Is there any point in putting a stainless steel exhaust on an 1.8 MPI 159, i take it that it would be lighter but would it have any performance advantages?

With a good company, like Ragazzon, Supersprint, the gains will be around 5-10 bhp (I think). Other than that, it will be purely for a sporty noise.
