It would be interesting to see the result of what happens if you near the limitation of the PowerShift transmission, as people mod their Fiestas in the future. Install a nice cold air intake, exhaust, get chipped, and slap a turbocharger in there... and watch the transmission go bye bye, lol. Honestly I'd still rather have a dry dual clutch tranny over a CVT. CVTs still seems way more fragile in comparison, since you're dealing with a belt sliding around. And theoretically Ford's PowerShift transmission is a zero maintenance system... or so they say.
