I had headers on my 2012 S for years, 1st Komo-tec headers and tune, then BOE CAI (prototype) and BOE custom editing of Komo-tec canned tune, finally BOE headers and BOE Fastracks tune. Each step improved drivability and power, although I would say from gut that my OEM 410 drivability felt as good as final BOE tune and power was similar but different, BOE '12 more linear, 400 OEM less power at low RPM's and slightly higher peak (i.e. less linear).. power feeling compared track to track on Barber Motorsport.

Today I have driven 250 miles on city, interstate and country roads, no track duty. drivability same as OEM, power difference?? adequate so far. Note I do not yet have a BOE tune which could buy 15 Hp or so.

Curves (not from current car, but with BOE headers)

July 2016 MY 2012 (jpg) - same Dyno, but different weather July vs January
Upper : BOE long tube header, Larini muffler, BOE CAI, BOE Fastworks tune
Lower: same as Jan 2013 (upper) 2013 KT Headers ... CAI + Larini muffler

A while back I bought a group 47 Antigravity battery, that wouldn't fit on the factory battery tray, the group 47 battery is taller than the 91 the car came with, so the OE bracket wouldn't work. I figured a strap solution would do the trick, but I ended up adding too much lightness, and the battery would slide to the right on left corners (it held tight in right corners and wouldn't slide left for some reason). To resolve the lateral sliding, I put in NASA cardboard to take up that space. (I wasn't terribly worried about heat/fire, since the auto ignition temperature of the cardboard is 250C and the thermal runaway temperature of the battery is 150C, meaning by the time the cardboard ignites the battery is already burning the car to the ground.) Well, the NASA cardboard and BDSM straps didn't give me the warm and fuzzies, so I made a new battery bracket. The bracket I made, isn't pretty, but it is functional. Since the new battery is 1/8th the weight of the AGM OE, I can get away with it being smaller and lighter.

Simplify then add lightness > beautify then add lightness.

Got a set of Michelin PS4S and an alignment (MY11 Evora S). This setup really beats the hell out of the 7 years old Corsas... No regrets for going away from the hard to find Corsas.
