Tuner says 2015+ WRX (CVT) tune is not safe, thoughts?

Postby llai8501 » Fri Oct 21, 2016 10:30 am

Hi all,

I tend to trust the expert and he was honest which I appreciate. I know lots of people tune their WRX's, does anyone have a 2015+ WRX (CVT Auto) tuned?

He said:
"The cvt is very weak and fail on a std car, tuning it will just make it happen sooner, so for this reason we don't tune the cvt."

Thoughts?

Any advice is appreciated.

I have heard the same. 400nm of torque is the limit or so.

But definitely has a bit of room for improvement. Get a mild tune. Just can't crank the boost up too high.

Obviously a tune isn't only for peak power, there should be some greater improvements to be had lower in the power band.

Less lag, more driveable. No knock. Fuel efficency. Can always be optimised.

I'd see another tuner.
