156 JTS Variator Test

Is it possible to test the Variator function with MultiEcuScan?

If it is should it be done with the engine running or stopped?

The engine can rev up to 6000 - 7000 rpm but it isn't so fast to do it as my Spider 2.0 TS so I wonder if it is the variator that don't work or it just is the characteristic of the JTS engine

Its a characteristic of the engine and any coking up of the inlet tract and valves will make the top end worse.

Jts has more bottom end torque as a trade off from top end. It shouldn't. But as the jts is a known engine that usually has less power than quoted a lot of the time its just how it is.
