Can a cvt transmission...

Can a cvt transmission handle the power pf a turbo charger

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your transmission fluid last checked?

My car has 78,000 miles on it so I don'y think it has been yet

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?

I was going to have a professional install it everything is stock on the car. No mods whatsoever

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that'ts about it.

I've seen on line where the cvt couldn't handle that kind of power so I was Leary about getting one
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I also saw where people were switching out the cvt for a 6 speed tranny but there's not much info on that
Nissan Mechanic: internal88, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

It could done but it won't high boost.

If you goal is go past 280 HP then turbo is not that right upgrade for you.

What is your goal in term of HP?

Ask Your Own Nissan Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
400 hp
Nissan Mechanic: internal88, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

For 400 HP at the wheel - You will need a M.T transmission at least and also other upgrade to the engine like Fuel injectors and pump.

The stock CVT won't be able to handle. 400 HP.

Please rate me positive, thank you!
