Try looking at the FI forum. I am pretty sure they have discussed this. I can't answer your question, but a search would probably turn up some good results as well.

My advise is to call lentech or performance automatic and ask them.

No one truly knows what it takes cuz only a handful of people have FI on an automatic.

It's no big deal.U should upgrade your chip to handle the load.And if u can u should also get a flywheel.That will help u out real nice.Upgrading the exhaust is mandatory and to take advantage of all that power in your ATX you should get some real good pulleys.And if you wanna fo faster adjustable cam gears. If your looking for a good supercharger I would suggest VORTECH,JACKSON RACING or FORD RACING.

GOOD LUCK WITH UR PROJECT AND TRUST ME IT WILL WORK LIKE A CHARM!!!!!!

notes

ford racing sells jrsc
there is no exclusive fr sc made by ford that i know of
and flywheel??? atx doesn't have one it has a torque converter and a flexplate that weighs like 7 lbs anyway(flexplate).

also if you got the money get something other than jrsc, get vortech or procharger(they'll push closer to 180 at the wheels on a atx) i thought it only made 140hp at the wheels for $2500 for 40hp, i don't think its worth it, its cheaper to port you head, cams, gears, intake exhaust, chip, pullies, bigger injectors and new maf. the head alone will prob get you 30-40 hp/trq.

Do what I did and get an STi. jk

You should really give lentech a call on this one as everyone has said. You get a limited lifetime warranty which is excellent and the auto has been tested to extreme turbo and SC limits.
