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.
