The transmission won't be able to handle the added torque.

Sure, But get the tranny built up first. Better torque converter, shift kit. You might want to go supercharger instead, easier on the motor and drivetrain.Good Luck

I dont think you should,1.- its automatic, a turboed LS acura wont be able to keep up with a B16 or similar... and will be pretty expensive to instal the turbo. my opinion is... get a 91 civic SI... slicks.... swap engine to an LS vtec... vtec controller... headers... good to kick some mustangs. 2.- Acuras are way too heavy. even if the tranny holds the 5 or 7 lbs you will get in that engine... the weight wont help you.

Shut up said it sell your car and get an older car and stuff stuff stuff that made no sense why would he sell his car to get a car that has no pwr windows, door locks, and maybe a/c. We are not sure if its an LS or GSR lets not forget they both came in auto.Yes you can turbo the car and yes it drive. But you be putting more abuse on your little tranny. To my knowelge their arent any aftermarket automatic tranny rebuild kits for Integra. One thing you want to consider is that your OBD2 and will need to convert to OBD1 to run some sort of aftermarket ECU like AEM Hondata or Uberdata. Run like 4-6psi and make sure your tranny fuilds are refresh. Sooner or later it will give out depends if you N drop alot. After that you could go maunal or rebuild your auto tranny. My friend has a 1999 Civic sedan EX auto turbo and that thing is quick spank EP3 hatches like nothing
