    Not bad at all. Just need to know how much power that your auto can handle. CustomTacos.com has a ton of info on your style truck, being boosted.

    Generally speaking, turbos on automatics spool quicker than same setup on a manual

    If you plan on lightly boosting you're truck (5-8psi), you MAY get away with a stock tranny, depending on other supporting mods. I would strongly recommend upgrading your valve body in the transmission as a bare minimum. Turbo's an automatics are great when done right, otherwise you are looking at many headaches. Especially if this is a DD.

    yea turbos with an auto are much faster usually then manual as the shifts can be made much faster and the RPM loss isn't as great therefore the turbo stays spooled better.

    However..as stated before..usually you have to beef up the auto a bit more..Check out Customtacos.com. MUCH MUCH more info there for turbo tacos.
