Default How to build a fast automatic civic?

I'm buying my first Civic in a couple months, but I will have to buy an automatic cause I have bad knee problems and I drive alot. So I'm wondering how could I make an automatic Civic fast?

turbo it

do what you would do with a manual transmission civic.
you can get better transmission parts to make the tranny more reliable to compensate for more power like you would get from turbo-ing it.

i'm also looking into this.

I want to turbo mine, and build up the transmission to withstand the power.

If you turbo it, it will work fine for a while, but all the extra power will mean extra strain on the transmision, so be ready to repair it a couple of times.

If you haven't already picked out your civic that you are purchasing, try to get an EX model. I know that from 1992-2000, thats the model with the VTEC engine (i'm not really sure about other years). I'd say try to get an Si, but you want an automatic and those only come in manual.
