    I currently have a 95 civic with a d16z6 motor just dropped a new auto tranny in it. What's the best/safe ways I can more power out of this automatic as of now with stock internals(also want to hear some internal upgrades), I was already thinking of turbocharging it with it running 5psi to be safe. Ps: I'm not interested in swapping for a 5spd tranny or anything I just want to build a street decent D series automatic with a little speed.

    I would start reading up on turbos and then assemble a kit. That's really the only way that your car will ever be anything resembling fast. I'm sorry, but the auto tranny is really going to be your weak link here. Plan on replacing it a few more times if you're going to apply boost...

    yep thats the only problem i have with boosting a auto car. trans will not handle the power or tq from it. unless you build the trans to. me personally have never seen a auto honda trans built.

    Yeah, I think there's a reason for that. Building a Honda slush-box just doesn't make much financial sense when their manual counter-parts are sturdier, geared better, and, well, manual. IMO anyway...
