i'm looking to put a turbo kit on my 93' 325is automatic and i am wondering what the maximum power capacity is for the stock tranny. Is there a computer chip for the tranny to make it stronger, in the shifting sense?

The automatic transmissions are rather crapy, you should get a manual if your going to go anywhere preformance wise with your car.
... Believe me.... I know.

BTW, You can't just slap on a turbo and expect it to produce so much power, you need a more powerful transmission (that may be the case with these autos lol, no, j/k). Before you start worring about the transmssion, you need to worry about all of the internal engine components, having custom software built, etc etc before the transmission actually becomes a problem.

Honestly, I wouldn't turbo an automatic 325, I'd save up and buy a 328 or above if I wanted more power, it will be more reliable, and the engine will last significantly longer if it's NA.
