That's a good question. The JF015E came with some improvements, but the critical flaws are still there in the oil pump. I think the valvebody received some improvements that make it less prone to failure especially the removal of the linear stepper motor and fewer valve body internal pistons. The JF015E would be good enough with the oil pump relief valve upgraded and a decent cooling system added. It's really the higher torque output Juke's that need heavy reinforcement. The CVT8 run the Luk chain instead of the pushbelt. I don't see it being retrofitted into a JF015E as it requires the chain guide and lubrication system fabricated to make it work. It's possible with some custom welding and some plumbing but I don't see the average person attempting it. Those chains require even higher clamping forces and the pulley's have to be reinforced for them to work, plus the pulley surfaces have a special surface finish to make the chains grab. This is how the CVT8 was done.@pboglio just registered an account on here to follow your updates and would like to thank you for sharing a wealth on information on these CVTs. I am particularly interested in the performance capabilities of the CVT7 JF015E that came in the Asian market Nissan Almera 1.0 turbo. Tho unrelated, the information on the JF016E has really been a primer for me. I only wonder what is involved in converting the JF015E to a CVT8 unit....
