Far as I know there is no such thing as a "turbo" transmission. I mean where exactly would you mount the turbo charger on a tranny?

Yes, I'm bustin your chops! There are two manual tranny's being used on the PT. The difference is easily noted by the shift patterns. The Getrag G288 is the tranny in the GT series, and it's solid as a rock except for the clutch plate, and it's got reverse up and to the left.

The "standard" manual tranny is the T350 and it's got the Reverse gear down and to the right.

As far as fitment goes, I've heard they both line up and either can be used. There may be some cabling changes to be made, I'm not sure of that, but they should be interchangeable.

The axles are different between a regular PT and a turbo PT...

The regular manual trans is a pretty strong unit, able to handle over 300 horsepower from what I have heard...
