Something else to add to my long-winded review of it:
Not sure if Drift has noticed it or if he&#8217;s in the manual version or not.... I have the CVT and it seems like when I give it more throttle to where it shoots to 4000 RPM&#8217;s like it&#8217;s hanging out there for a little extra time before it finally shifts. That wasn&#8217;t the case before the exhaust was added.
I also have the CVT and didnt own the car long enough before all my mods to notice the differences. But my RPMs do exhibit the same
behavior you mention, I just thought it was the CVT being annoying. It would make sense if your experiencing that if the car actually did receive a power increase and the CVT tends to not shift until you?re done applying more power. So what your experiencing is a difference in power and a CVT behavior change from its stock patterns. Its probably detecting more power and if your applying throttle the same way you used to, it will hang in there longer to do what you want it to achieve. This is my speculation but it makes sense to me in my limited knowledge of CVT behavior.
