Swap CVT transmission to manual transmission....possble?
« on: August 31, 2010, 09:03:39 PM »
Hey everyone. Just wondering if it was possible, and if so, would it be very expensive and even worth doing this. I learned how to drive a manual after i got my CVT and now i regret not learning it before. I love manual. Anyways if anyone can help i would appreciate. it.  ;)

Yes it's possible , But it is not practical . would cost you alot of money to convert it . Trans , mounts , wiring and electronics , would break your piggy bank . In addition paddle shifters wouldn't be functional any more , just there for looks.

I would trade it in also if you want a manual, it wouldn't cost you much more to trade in and also you could get a brand new 2010 too!

Anything is possible with money but not worth it. Might as well trade it in for a manual lol, much cheaper and much less potential for problems.

Bottom line is it not worth it , Unless you buy a wrecked ralliart and swap out entire engine and drivetrain into your lancer. plus a few electronic items . Maybe someone will do that soon , maybe  ;D

Summary:

It is conceivably possible
It would be very difficult
Its not cost effective

However, whomever does it, would receive Lancer baller status for life...

Maybe I'll just put a CVT steering wheel in my car and say I did the swap.

We going to start this arguement again ? Internal the transaxle is same as manual , the clutch is computer controlled liquid clutch . Thats the way of future for manuals , ferrari , lambo , porsche, many others , including the present day rallye cars use this type system . But then again we're off topic so I'm saying no more.

It's still not a manual. Hands down, period. That's all there is too it. It is not internally the same as a manual transmission. There are similarities, but thats where it stops. It may be the future for automatic transmissions, which makes sense, but it is NOT a manual transmission or driving experience. Which is what the OP was looking for.

Prefer what you want. But its not a manual.

I love you

But it would be lies, all lies...
