Turbo automatic

Does anyone think me doing this is really worth it or should i put the money into buying another car? Or somthing else? I would love to have a sleeper since no one likes bein smoked by a focus but has there been anyone else with a turboed auto that can clue me in on what its like and if its worth it?

yea turbo tom had a 723 whp auto. without building the stock auto i think it craps out at like 185whp. you wont make very big power for very long unless you build it (the trans).

read this thread want needs to be built up

an auto can take horsepower its torque that matters. 9.5psi on fswerks turbo kit gets you just over 200hp with an automatic

edit:produced 216.6whp and 212.7wtq 2.3 automatic

well it all depends on how much do you think the car is worth and how much you want to put in it.

why would you not do it on an auto i mean if i had a built tranny itd whoop on most sticks due to the never losing boost and an auto can shift faster than any human?
