Whats the best turbo swap for a 1996 OBW 2.5 auto?

i have a few questions.

im pretty sure the final drive ratio for my car is 4.44 right?

i want to replace the transmission as well and i have a few options from my source.

1997 - 1999 EJ20T w/ manual but whats the final ratio?

1996 ej20TT w AUTO.... whats the final ratio? do i neeed new axles ect. (this may be what im going to buy guys even though ill have the do some piping modification. I can get the complete harness trans engine and ecu for $1400.

I need specific information on doing the swap, I want to purchase everything and have it all ready the same day.

This is just going to be a daily driver for my wife so im not really concerned about the manual even though its a waste.

I really want to make this work, but before i get knee deep into it, i need a little more info.

first off, to check yor final drive, look at the rear diff, it will tell you... and second, if your going to spend the money on an ej20t and matching tranny, why not just get the rear diff as well?
