so, i hadn't noticed this before as i just assumed all the CVT's were the same for the Civic's. there's a difference. anyone know what or why?

one is for the 2.0 auto and the other is for the 1.5 turbo.

Continuously Variable Transmission (M-CVT)
Gear Ratios:
Forward: 2.526~0.408
Reverse: 2.706~1.552
Final Drive: 4.680



Continuously Variable Transmission (LL-CVT)
Available
Gear Ratios:
Forward: 2.645~0.405
Reverse: 1.859~1.265
Final Drive: 4.811

I would think the transmission ratios are tuned to match the different torque and horsepower output curves of the engines, to yield the best overall drivability and fuel economy for each individual case.

1.5t CVT is built stronger for more power.
I hope it can handle a high octane tune like VitViper is running in his 17 Civic MT.
