Supercharger Ideas?

Wats up people, I have an 03 540i and interested in putting in a supercharger, but it\'s an automatic? I know there are a lot of mixed ideas about autos having superchargers, but any good ideas on one and other upgrades before I install one?

I know when I supercharged my 528iA, my auto couldn't handle it and would slip, a friend had the same setup followed by the same issue, just FYI

You should be ok unless your tranny is going out right now. 415 crank HP is not that much abuse on that tranny, change fluid every 50k and install aftermarket trans cooler and you're good to go. But yea-if you want to use evey bit of your newfound power the 6 speed is the way to go , but I like my auto with the supercharger .
