I agree with the fact that manufacturers implement new designs without the proper testing and or they know their designs have issues but along as failures tend to happen after warranty, they dont care much. They dont care if their name gets drug thru the mud for a bit, look at the priuses that wouldn't stop, Volkswagens dirty diesels, BMW and their ignitions catching fire etc etc. People have no brand loyalty any more, and the oems know that "if I dont buy it, some one else will" so they dont care.
On the CVT oil being compatible or not, the only way to be certain is with a full oil analysis on the 2 nissan fluid vs redline. maybe some day when I get bored or closer to cvt fluid replacement I'll dig in to it.
I'm no young grasshopper by the way lol my car addiction was inherited from my father, and my own started in 96 when I got my 1st car (legally lol) @ 16 years old. I've owned Big block V8s, Blown V6's, 4cyl Na and turbo, crotch rockets, a couple harleys, quads etc etc.
For now, I will be doing a baseline Dyno on my Note 100% Bone stock. After that the Typical intake & exhaust and I'll be making my own header. I have a buddy that owns a dyno and ill go ahead and re dyno after each mod just so every one can see exactly what each mod will net you power, torque and drivability wise.
It's a waste of money yes I know, but it will serve as an informative guide to those wanting to mod or as was the case with a 2012 civic I had, there was a dyno proven 3hp gain on a $350 dollar intake by a couple people, that gave a reason NOT to mod and save your money.
