I dont see why not. Yes it can be done. Adding a turbo has notting to do with the tranny.(until it goes kaput) You just wont here the blow off valve that well.

You would hardly get any benefit from a turbo on a automatic, turbos work on RPM, in moxt cases your automatic tranny will shift before the turbo has a chance to spool up, what you would be paying for is an under hood decoration. On automatics the way to go would be supercharger, they will give you continuous boost as they work on a pulley attached to your engine. You will not get as much power as with a turbo, but you will get it constantly. The higher you can let your RPMS rise the more effecient a turbo is. The reason FACTORY cars come that way is due to the fact that their ECU's are programmed to shift differently under heavy loads, and the turbo is mated to their car. Look at a factory turbo and an aftermarket turbo TOTALLY DIFFERENT. They are made to boost quickly and lightly not like a PERFORMANCE turbo. take 2 factory turbo cars, one auto, one manual, line them up side by side and race them. The manual will win every time due to the fact that they have more of a powerband to use. If you are going to comment at least make sure you know what you are talking about.

Skimming over what honda guy said, he's right. You would not get much boost from an auto, but on a high reving v-tec might work. You would have to mash the pedal hard every time. But either way a supercharger would be your best bet.

Yes you can and you can also get alotof power from the Turbo. However too much boost and you can blow your motor. Plus after putting on the turbo you'll also need to put Prenium Gas Only too or else the car will run all crappy.

Why do people want to sink all sorts of money into cars like this? You will never see those dollars again.
