You posted this in the FA20 NA section. This would be for FR-S and BRZ which don't have the CVT.

And the rumors of the CVT breaking at 300wtq are false.

That has very little to do with the CVT itself, it's the torque converter...

yep, like I mentioned, drive-train loss is what you lose from your motor measured at crank or flywheel hp (like factory rated #'s do) to what you lose thru the parts transferring it to the ground, 2wd and 4wd cars have different losses, same w rwd or fwd, parts such as driveshaft, heavy wheels, torque converter on an auto.

we have dyno'd 2015 wrx's alot in the past year on a mustang-500, what I was saying is, the cvt wrx #'s were pretty pathetic compared to any of the manuals, after all the loss of hp before it gets to the wheels, its almost not even like a turbo cars power anymore, I mean there are v-tech crap boxes making around the same whp as a cvt 2015 wrx, I sure wouldn't waste my 28-35k on one that doesnt give me the full 230-250 or so whp from stock

its still a pos though. i mean its great that he's making that power but a wrx with cvt isn't racing anyone. its not an evox.

have you ran any cvts at your power level, or are you just talking speculation?
