Question Alternate auto tranny Choices for the FD?

I simply cannot swap out my auto tranny for a 5 speed. I am going to keep my rotary engine and was curious as to weather some of you have heard of auto tranny swapping. An auto that can handle 400+whp and can potentially be bolted up to the 13b..........

Turbo 350 would do you good... no OD though... You can build a 700r4 to handle that power nowadays and pretty inexpensively.

IIRC, phase one Subaru transmissions bolt right up to a 13B. There is a phase 2 4EAT that people hold quite a bit of power with just a TC. Maybe you can find a phase 1 to phase 2 bell housing?
