Auto 2.4L maximum limits

I can my first car, though with my mom being strict about manuals, I have a auto 2.4L SS. I know that the auto trans is quiet frail, but I want to upgrade my engine to have a bit more oomph, and to sound really good.

I want to supercharge it to get the whine, or get a aggressive cam that gives it the Bram bram kind of idle, but I don't want to break the trans. Also planning to get lightweight wheels, and doing aerodynamic upgrades to improve grip, and decrease drag. (Mostly undertray, and little optimizations)

When referring to the "maximum limits" of an auto 2.4L engine, it typically relates to its performance specifications and capabilities. Here are some general factors that can influence the maximum limits of a 2.4L engine:
  1. Horsepower and Torque: The horsepower and torque ratings indicate the power output and rotational force generated by the engine. Higher horsepower and torque values generally correspond to better acceleration and overall performance. The maximum limits of a 2.4L engine can vary depending on factors such as the engine design, fuel type, turbocharging (if applicable), and other performance enhancements.
  2. RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) Range: Every engine has an optimal RPM range within which it delivers its peak power and torque. The maximum limits of a 2.4L engine may include its maximum RPM range, which determines the engine's ability to rev and deliver power at high speeds.
  3. Speed Limit: The top speed achievable by a vehicle with a 2.4L engine will depend on various factors, including the vehicle's weight, aerodynamics, transmission, and gear ratios. While the engine power plays a role, it is not the sole determining factor in setting a speed limit.
  4. Engine Cooling: Continuous operation of an engine at or near its maximum limits for an extended period can lead to increased heat generation. Adequate engine cooling systems, such as radiators and cooling fans, are crucial to maintaining the engine within its safe temperature limits.
