I just spoke with Roman, tech at RRM re: suspension upgrades. He indicated that RRM's looking at the R & D for a turbo for the CVT. Stay tuned.

I call on shops for a living and the 4 turbo in the Hyunda is weak. Rear wheel drive is cool and car looks great.

CVT Turbo isnt going to happen. and Baz was recently reading that there isnt much performance wise we can do with our CVT transmissions. the transmission cant handle much more HP than the 180(which is why the cvt automatic version sports 180 hp and the manual versions sports 185 HP)

Although I agree the cvt won't handle much more than the stock power, considering we're starting to see some just fail from normal use, the manual transmission can easily handle power. I found someone who actually has a RRM turbo kit on his kizashi and he's dailying it at 350whp

true, but we're speaking about the CVT tranny. wish there was a manual version available when I was looking at mine
