Default Upgrading Transmission

I've got an auto trans on my 97 Accord (which I believe is the H4A), I'm wondering if I can upgrade it before I turbo it. I'm planning on getting a cam gear and turbo rated camshaft (bisimoto), but I'm wondering how the auto trans will hold up and if I can't go above 10 psi (I won't push more than that) on the auto then what my other options are. I'm kinda bent on keeping the auto because I've been informed by many people that an auto is better than a stick as far as speed because the turbo doesn't take as much time to spool between shifts, but from a reliability stand point its no good.

thanks man. what happened to the pics of the car? you have the exact same car as mine (well when it was stock anyways). Everyone says you have a clean body kit on it just interested.

and if I get this transmission it should work before I turbo my car too right? Its not a turbo grade only transmission? I would think logically if it is made to be more durable and work with much higher hp it could work just as well with mine (don't care about efficiency just don't want it to break w/ my current set up before I put my turbo on).
