Turbo + Automatic?

Alright boys I feel kinda stupid for asking this can you have a turbo on a car with an auto trans? I have seen videos on YouTube of automatic cars with turbos but they are usually cars with bigger engines (like a scion tc). I have a 09 focus sedan automatic trans and want more power. Any suggestions? I already have the fswerks CAI.

Any help would be great!

fswerks makes a kit for the auto, that being said any kit for your car will work with proper tuning

If you do go forced induction, you might want to look at an upgraded valve body for the ATX. Lentech has one for about $450. I'm planning on going that route eventually.

Does fswerks make a kit specifically for an automatic or does their duratec kit work for the automatic as well?
