Has anyone tried to swap out a manual transmission and replaced it with a cvt? does anyone think they know most of the procedure?
Very true and very sad!"Gone are the days where you can just swap out the hardware and bolt it up and you are done."
Perhaps so..... But Subaru themselves only tags the AUTOMATIC xMission models with "Symmetrical All Wheel Drive" I have never seen the tag on a MANUAL model.The viscous differential used in our manual Subarus is still symmetrical.
My 18' 5MT says it, or are you referencing something more specific that I'm not picking up on?I have never seen the tag on a MANUAL model.
Your point on the manual being mostly mechanical and the automatic being electronic is a good one. Two different systems.
- On MANUAL xmission Subaru's, the AWD system is different. (NOT Symmetrical All Wheel Drive)
No. As stated by myself and others, it has nothing to do with the power split. It's the layout of the drive train. It is true from a technical standpoint and Subaru has chosen to use that for marketing.The "symmetrical AWD" moniker is just sales hype; it means nothing technically.
