LSD Install on 2015 Civic Hybrid

I came across your site online. I am researching the feasibility a cost for installing a limited slip differential into a 2015 Civic Hybrid.
My wife loves the way both of her Civic Siís (Old 2007 & New 2014) handle in the winter with the LSDís. We are wanting to attain improved gas mileage but not give up winter time traction. She really doesn't "need" and Si but it's noticeably better in the winter. Than other Civics we've driven and hugely better than my 2007 Element SC (the one wheeled wonder).

We appreciate any and all help with this.

Alex

Thanks

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

Probably a CVT?

Warranty void

Yes the Hybrids only come in a CVT.
Just heard from Honda Service and a local Honda performance oriented mechanic and they are both saying it can't be done based on the regenerative braking setup in the hybrid drive train.
Not exactly sure why but at least it answers the question somewhat.

Thanks guys!
