Default Can an auto be chipped?

Ok, I have a Prelude and it's an automatic. I plan to boost it and run a P06. But I'm wondering if it will be a problem since my car is an auto. From what it looks like, most people can't create basemaps for autos. Can anyone verify this?

Here is what I will be running:

Things I have right now:

Rebuilt stock H23A1
Stock Injectors 240cc
Garret/ AiResearch T3 Compressor: .52 A/R Exhaust: .48 A/R
Tial 38mm Wastegate w/ 5psi spring
Cheap Intercooler off Ebay 2.5" inlets bar and plate
Stock fuel pump
P06 ECU (still need to chip)
Custom downpipe and manifold

Things I still have to get:

2.5" Piping kit
Knockoff HKS SSQV BOV
Oil feed and return kit


I know I need to get bigger injectors and the turbo is probably kind of small but that's what I have right now so I'm going to use it. I will also probably get a new fuel pump. I'm on a budget so I'm going as cheap as possible.

So I guess I'm going to have to go with an FMU and missing link or convert to a standard. I just don't want to blow my engine with and FMU.

I knew I could chip the P06 but xenocron said
I am not sure how the P06 is going to react with your Auto TCU. Do you even know if you have an Auto TCU?
Here is another question. The TCM is the same as the TCU correct? I just want to make sure. Here is a pic of it.
I got the P06 out of an auto so I was thinking it should be ok. I was going to have xenocron make me a bassemap for my setup. But from what he said, it seems that he cannot do it. So I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

I read that the stock injectors are good for up to about 180-190 whp. Do you think I will make over that at 5 psi?

Ive allways wanted to boost my auto hatch, but not sure if the tranny will hold up. Any one got any input on how well honda auto's hold up to boost?
