As a backup solution, do you know if the CVT bell housing is the same as the one in 6-speed. So that in case of a failure you can convert to manual ($4-5k for STI tranny vs 7-8k for CVT)?
I feel a swap to a manual would be a general waste of time and more expensive than the numbers you have written. I rather go to another car etc.

Not quite as expensive as you think, here is a new STI 6spd tranny for 4.3k$

Used one can be purchased for 2.5k$. You might need driveshaft, diff, rear, axles but the key question is whether bell-housing of cvt is the same. I assume it should be as people swap Wrx and STI transmissions, but I do not have first hand experience with the latest platform.

I personally would not want to do it and if you can do it for just that then congrats. If you want to continue this talk please pm me or transfer to technical thread. Cheers

No worries, man. Good luck with you car. I like checking on your thread from time to time to see what's new.

I personally don't like the CVT, but still want to know how it holds under the power long term as I might be buying Ascent in the future.

P.S. Here is a 2014 tranny for $2k, here on the FS forums.
