    Likewise, remapping the twin-scroll turbo N16 will boost from 160 hp to ~190 hp following the same gains.

    190hp / 400Nm CR-V would be something. Even a 30 hp bump would be great. But I think I'll stick to stock for now.

    The nit I want to pick the most with the diesel CR-V is the constant shifting. In urban settings it feels like it shifts a thousand times before you get to where you're going. S mode minimizes that but still, heck of a lot of shifts.

    it would appear,
    MT still has its uses.

    That 9sp ZF .... I wonder if it was designed for snail pace traffic. Hows the clocks umabot na 20,000km?

    Or 4AT, 6AT, or CVT for city driving. Lahat matibay. CVT walang serviceable parts, palit unit kung tamaan ng malas.

    Paano pala nafi-feel ang shifts? Di ba madalas constant RPM lang makina habang nag accelerate sa city relaxed pacing? (4AT at CVT lang experience).

    i used to drive one of the earlier cvts, in the 2003 lancer cedia.
    it had no kadyots.
    it's fun to manipulate the pedal to watch the speedo needle climb up, as the rpm needle climbs down or remains un-moving.

    lahat naman serviceable. we just don't have master mechanics that have expertise on these newer CVTS.

    also failure rates on CVTs from Subawu Honda Nissan and Toyota in the US is less than 1%

    agree.. when watching repairs sa youtube.. sa US meron talaga "experts" sa field.. like ECU, BCM, transmission etc.. may mga mock engine or dashboard setup sila to test the modules and reprogram if possible...

    Not really an MT vs AT issue doc. It's just the design of the powertrain. Makes use of closely spaced ratios to make the most of the narrow powerband and modest output. Makes for exceptionally efficient fuel consumption paired with decent performance.

    I don't mind having to trade a bit of fuel efficiency for more power and wider ratios. Something the 160 ps version may have addressed.

    Had this serviced at 15tkm before the lockdown. Now it's at ~15,800 lol.

    2018 2.0S CRV now almost at 40,000 km. No issues with the transmission so far - silky smooth and responsive. But really just doesn't have the torque of the diesel.
