Default engine swap on auto civic 98 ex?

i wanted to know if you were able to do an engine swap on an automatic and if u can then where would i find one. also would it make any sense to put a turbo kit on an automatic.i biught the automatic thinking i would like it better than the manual but now i think i should have gone with a manual.

you already have the best motor that you can easily bolt to your transmission.if you wanted to swap to a b-series motor, you'll have to change out the transmission, anyway, so you can convert the chassis to accept a manual.it can be more effort to do, but it's not impossible.turbo on the auto? I wouldn't. honda autos aren't all that strong anyway, and they lag pretty badly as well.turbo is just more lag...
