You're very welcome! Raising the torque peak/capping torque at a certain level is good for the CVT anyways, so swapping the Si turbo or even a larger one in, is a great idea for longevity.Thank you for sharing your experience. I dreamt of building a hybrid FK7 SI CVT. I prefer to keep the CVT because there is only CVT sold in my country so manual conversion is not feasible for me.
I started with SI turbocharger swap. I was thinking about swapping the intake piping and MAF from SI but apparently it is also not feasible if I want to keep stock ECU. The next step for me, which I am still exploring, is to swap piston and connecting rod with piston and conrod from the SI.
Thank you for the inspiration.
