they show a turbo but not a supercharger. Although it is real expensive and for an automatic, ummm I wouldn't spend that kinda money.

I would think that a supercharger would be best for an automatic since the power is always there. Also you wont have to worry about spooling up the turbo with an automatic.

I agree, can't really turbo an auto properly. Stick with S/C.

Can anyone find the supercharger for a 92 though. I looked a little and did not see it.

I would disagree, turbo and automatics are a good combo as long as the auto can handle the extra power.

You can do either one, just get a supercharger though, you don't have to worry about spooling up, the power is right there at the pedal...
