I would think it would increase the turbo lag with bigger heavier impellers that would take longer to get up to speed. That is one of the things with our little turbos that they rev quite quickly.I need this ASAP. I Feel like a turbo upgrade will help with the possible turbo lag I have from bigger Intercooler piping.... I’m eager to see what the price will be
Any way you could run a cvt tune that accommodates the torque range for that drivetrain to indicate that installing this drop-in with OTS or even stock tune is safe?Power Level over 9000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s what I was thinking. Even if the power band is shifted to the right. The cvt has very low standards as far as performance benefits. It was made for fuel economy, commuting/every day general use. You can’t take it farther like you can a manual. To my knowledge there’s not “upgraded” cvt parts available, I say parts because it involves a lot of work. Also costs are way higher.Guys are already blowing their trans on just the basic base maps. If they can't handle that power how will they handle even more?
no ones been blowing them when they're tuned correctly, Fit had no issues tuning for more than the OTS maps and for people with E85 - you just can't have max power in the low range which with this larger turbo changes the whole power band and from the looks of it can put down some great power even with a CVT since there would be less stress moving torque later i.e. making more HP in a safer RPM range. if the CVT can handle 260tq (which is the figure i believe i dont remember off the top of my head) then making 260 at say 4500RPM is much easier on the car than the current 3000RPM rangeGuys are already blowing their trans on just the basic base maps. If they can't handle that power how will they handle even more?
I very much believe you can get right at 300 with 93 fully bolted and a little bit more boost. But it's important not to get hung up on the overall number as all dynos vary. It's the Delta that we are after. You are basically dropping in an extra 50+ whp with some tuning.
