You're getting confused: both are vehicles with turbocharged engines, but one of them has an automatic transmission and the other has a manually operated gearbox (US= stick shift transmission).

Converting one to the other is so expensive and awkward that it makes no sense: it's far cheaper and easier to simply sell your stick shift car and buy the same or similar model which left the factory from day one as an automatic.

The turbochargers are the same. It doesn't matter what kind of transmission the engine is hooked up to.

You haven't told us what's wrong with the automatic transmission, so how can we know what parts you need?

You don't upgrade an automatic transmission. If you want a better tranny, you have to swap your old one out for a better one.
