Turbo Automatics?

does anyone have a turbo set up in their automatic balt? if so, how does the tranny hold up? im SCin my auto pretty soon here but then i came across the ZZP turbo kit for the auto, its a bit more pricey but much more power and now im debating which one 2 get, can someone help me out? (dont say "why would you turbo an automatic")

R.I.P. :(

This is asking for trouble.. I don't think auto trannies are rated higher than 170hp, anyone know for sure?

auto and turbo go together pretty well actually. think about it, you wouldn't lose as much boost with an auto. you'd just have to turn it pretty well so it'll shift without hurting itself but last i checked we couldn't get a turbo for autos because the piping doesn't fit around it, maybe it has changed recently

Turbo kits for autos are available.
Stage 3 turbo kit install date 5-10-10
Heat exchanger already installed.
I don't have exact numbers here,
but I believe that max torque for the auto
is around 300. Thats more than the 5 speed.
