Here is an email I sent to Level 10 Transmission and their response to it. It's a simple response but one nevertheless. Just wanted to show this to the turbocharged (or nitrous..hehe) Justy guys that are having trouble with their ECVTs tranny design. I wish they would've gone into more detail since their response was really broad. :(



"Dear Kevin,
How are you? hope all is well. We can upgrade those transmissions also. We can build the whole transmission or the valve body and torque converters.



Thank You for contacting Level 10 Products

Subject: ECVT Transmission work


Hello Pat and Sam,

A couple of guys have gotten together and are building 2 turbocharged Subaru Justys (please don't laugh..hehe). I'm interested in doing the same but with an automatic transmission. Pat, you've done some work on a Subaru Impreza Outback Wagon of mine (white/black stripes...turbo/nitrous....back in January 2001) and it is still going strong. I'm looking to have a Justy's automatic transmission made stronger but it's not the same. It's an ECVT transmission.

I know you guys are pros and all but do you (or have you) done any work on an ECVT (you know but I have to add it: Electronically Controlled Variable Transmission) and if so, what can be done to 'beefen' it up. Stock Justys are about 75hp/73lbs-ft. With the turbo, estimating around 145hp/lbs-ft - 155hp/lbs-ft or so. Not a lot but enough to tear up the trannies as 1 of the guys found out previously. If you do work on these, please let me know. Thanks

Kevin Thomas"

I think it is clear they have no idea what an ECVT is. A bigger Van-Thorn belt and pullys w/actuators would be the only way. I bet they believe it is just another ECU controlled auto tranny.
