    Turbo and automatic

    I know it is possible to turbo an automatic, but is it worth it and can it be just as good as a stick or surpass a stick?

      true it can shift faster than a manual, but a stock auto tranny boggs on launch and boost can toast the clutch packs.....

      so upgrade the torque converter and beef up the tranny and there you go. later.

            yeah i can vouch for all these guys.... i had my auto 90 CB7 boosted for about 6 months on 9psi... the tranny started to slowly show signs of wearing like gears engaging muchh harder and revving to much higher rpms before shifting under normal cruising conditions and it got to the point where the tranny started to chirp when it shifted into 2nd gear.... the next day i was just driving normal, gettin on it a lil bit and when i cant to a stop sign, suddenly every single gear was neutral even reverse.... and i did troubleshoot it to make sure it wasnt the TCU or something electrical, but after a bit, it started engaging somewhat normally till i got about 500ft down the road and i started hitting neutral again in every gear and had to push her home....

            moral of the story, she'll go, and she'll be fun for a while, but sooner or later, she's garunteed to go boom unless you beef up that trans....

              go to level 10. Buy the PTS kit and a new torque converter. You should be good as long as the psi is relatively low.

                Iím also planning on turboing my automatic CB7, im using a T3 so I wont get much boost when mash on the gas but I will get top end. I basically use my car for show and not much go, I donít drag it or anything but im still planning on going 5 speed but I believe if I ease into the gas the auto should hold me for a good while.

                    I belive if you jump on it when doing like 60 or 70 it will still wear it down.

                      Turbo automatic trannys wont last long. Besides that, honestly...what's the point? You may as well do a manual conversion. Turbos are for speed and automatic transmissions arent, it just doesnt match. I dunno about you guys, but I'm automatic right now, speed isnt a big thing for me I just want to have a nice car.

                            Thanks guys for the input, now that I have read the info you all are right the tranny's wont be able to take it. So since I can't afford and H22A, tranny, and the swap. I will just have to stick wit a F22B swap and get converted to a 5speed, then turbo da hell out of her. To save me money I would do it myself, but I am not much of a mechanic besides changing my on oil, and the lil things. I'm a college student wit no time, but I can't wait till I graduate so I can get into automotive school.
