Default Modifying 2012 Subaru Impreza 2.0i premium

I have 2012 subaru Impreza. I bought it used at 87k. Its handling is smooth. Engine is in great shape. I just had the cvt transmission replaced, thanks to an extended warranty. Now, I'm thinking about modifying a couple things on the engine to add some extra ponies. Possibly adding a new air intake, maybe exhaust, etc. My question is, with the cvt...well being a cvt lol. Will adding more horsepower cause any premature wear on the transmission? I've done research on cvt's and what I've found so far is less than positive. Is it because they aren't designed to handle high amounts of torque? What makes the cvt so vulnerable to premature wear? My original cvt had to be replaced because of worn bearings. So with all that being said. What can I do to ensure a long transmission life with this new transmission? Are there any engine modifications I can do that won't prematurely wear out the transmission? Thanks for reading. I'd love to see what you think

quite possibly. I know that the nissan maximas with the CVT transmission required special specific tuning to keep the transmission is decent condition when adding power to their motors. I'd research on ways to modify the transmission to make it stronger first before adding power to the motor
