It is torque that kills transmissions. JATCO (the transmission manufacturer) rates the CVT model used in the Kizashi at 250Nm, which is roughly 185 lb*ft of torque. The engine in the Kizashi is rated at 170 lb*ft of torque, so there is very little head room for more with the CVT. Odds are that turbocharging will kill the CVT in short order.

I get about 19 miles/gal in town. Freeway trips I get about 32 mi/gal. I'm still using the stock tires; I'm wondering if new, better tires with low rolling resistance will improve my numbers.
