mega squirt and 96 turbo auto question or.?

i have two 96 probes, one manual klze and one so dam stock nice i have elected to keep it auto but want to play with trying to turbo it. ( it was orginially going to be a parts car to the first one but its so minty)

anyway, i want to mega squirt but of course the 96 ecu talks to the trans pcm and its built into the ecu unlike the 93-95

i am looking for small boost and understand its auto and will probably put an explorer trans cooler and stuff into it till it shits.. its a jdm trans i got out of japan... lets hope its limited slip!

anyway .. question is: can i boost at all with stock ecu? any parallel or piggy back with out alot of brain damage.. shift points will get all messed?

i am already looking into the piping and the guy that already did it on this forum.. nice work if he reads this..

thanks all .

This seems like a bad idea.

I went the piggyback option to leave the spark control - and knock sensor, fans, EGR - with the stock ECU. I have since moved on to using the DIY Autotune knock sensor circuit but using the same principle should work for controlling the auto transmission.

Here is the piggyback wiring harness I used.

don't turbo an ATX Probe. I've seen it done before. He used Megasquirt. The trans can't handle it.
