    In your Dodge, what do you set your cruise at on that expressway? 75? 80 mph?

    Keep in mind he is bolting a 2017 CVT to a 2017 3A92 and putting both in a 2014 Mirage. Bolting a 2017 CVT to a 2014 3A92 may be a different story, but if the 2017 CVT works in the 2014 Mirage then it is definitely good news for you pre-4/14 guys.

    It would have been quicker to just look up engine part numbers and see that there is only one available for a 2014 and it’s the same as 2015. The short block fits multiple years as well. There were 2 cvts for 2014. The later one is the same up to 2020.

    There is no doubt that a late 2014-2020 cvt will bolt up to an early 2014 engine no differently than it would to a late 2014-2020 engine.

    Anywh0re…made a little progress last night. It’s in the car, got some wires and hoses hooked up, replaced the oem drain plug gasket and replaced this engine oil filter for the first time.

    Now All that’s left to do is install the ignition coils, air cleaner, battery tray, bolt up exhaust,rad, rad fan, axles, lower engine mount,ac compressor, alternator, starter, battery, adjust shifter cable, install new belt, add fluids, and maybe the bumper cover and wheels.

    It woulda been quicker to do half those things than it just took to type that on a phone.

    So far so good. It's alive. I dumped 5 qts of cvt fluid in the hole and it still reads low. It's fine....I took it for a quick drive and it drove like a car.

    Edit: had to go for a booze cruise to pick up some celebratory beers. Noticed a clunk coming from the rh front when on the throttle after switching directions. I'll look at that later. Otherwise it does drive much nicer than before. No more having to floor it to accelerate like a normal car. It seems to have a hair more low end torque. Just overall drives better.

    Now that the engine isn't hammering away I notice the exhaust is now squeaking at one (or two) of the joints before or after the cat. I recall someone else having that problem and they gobbed some shmooh on it.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! You solved the mystery of the early 2014s! You sir, are a scholar and a gentleman, I salute you! Now, when my CVT7 fails, I can tell the Aamco guy to fly a kite if he insists I have to special order a new pre-04/01/14 CVT7 for $6k! Bwahahahaha! Man I wish we could hang out! I got a passport, I'm coming to Alberta dammit!

    I couldn’t figure out wtf that clunk is. Front end is tight. It’ll be fine.

    I was worried I cracked an ac line cause sometime last week the ac compressor wasn’t where I left it and the lines were a little tweaked. It works like before. I did note that when it’s cold the rad fan comes on and off with the ac clutch(compressor). Fancy…

    Next project is fix this headlight I completely fak’d up a while back. I think whatever I used to clean the lens reacted with the clear coat. Name:  image.jpg
