Is it possible to install the bolt-on turbo with automatic transmission? And if yes, then is worth it?

your best bet would be hondata kpro with a custom harness, but that would run you up to 1300 not including a tune. And it's definitely worth it, that's what i'm saving up for now!

the auto tranny wont last long with a turbo setup... also the tranny isnt the best tranny honda makes. ur best bet for a longer lasting car would b getting a manuel swap from a tsx 6 spd. but hell u could be one of the lucky ones to hav a auto trubo accord that will last for a long time.

p.s. a good tune is always the best for FI. Dont wanna hav a blown engine.

The gears are too short for all the power a turbo makes IMO. A lot of the guys on K20A end up switching to a 5 speed from their 6 speed. You could still do it and it will still be awesome though, but I think the better choice is the 5 speed.

if you're going to turbo your car, the last thing you should be worried about is a tranny. Don't even think about turbo'ing if you're worried.

There is more serious failure that can happen than just a tranny. Anytime you modify your car, expect a money pit to develop.

AEM FIC or Hondata K-Pro avoid Greddy Emanage.

+1 kiet is right on... the tranny should b the last of ur worries, and always have a couple grand saved up for the "just in case" when seriously modifying a car, if ur going boost make sure u have some cash saved up in case u need a new engine, or a tranny...lol
