hey, i'm pretty new to this forum but I have some questions

i'm rolling in a 99 Civic Ex with about 153K

I wanna get the engine rebuilt, however after that I want to add a turbo,
I was look at the Preformer X turbo by Edelbrock, i've heard great things about this turbo kit.

i'm not looking to set any records and not planning on running much boost, i'm curious as to much much boost, if any, an automatic Tranny can take and if I can reenforce any parts in it to have to take boost.

my reason for doing this: this is my first car and my baby, I have other projects, but this car has sentimental value and I don't want to change much, also every other project is a stanerd trannsmission, i'd be nice to have one car that I don't have to worry about shifting gears.

Thanks everyone for your time

An auto trans wont hold much boost. And the cost to build up an auto trans would be much more than the cost of a manual trans
