I want to do an engine swap on my 2016 altima with either a RB26 or a SR20. I will figure out the transmission later. But I really just wanna make a bad ass show car that will make people look. 2015-2018 are the blacksheeps of the altima world. So i could use some advice. I also need to make a custom wide body kit, plus debating on auto coils or air. not sure anymore since accuair shut down and got bought out. i dont know if i can trust the system anymore.

I don't think you have that option, the TCM and ECM are joined at the hip on the CANbus. The late model CVT's are all set up that way, the TCM will go limp without mama online. You probably can't put turbo power on a 2.5L CVT anyway, the belt won't handle anything beyond a mild boost. You'll at least need the 3.5L trans.
