Transmission difference

Anybody know what if anything is the difference between a 300d automatic transmission and a turbo 300d automatic transmission?

In 1978 the first 55 300SDs were built. Their transmissions and those that followed were the basic 300D 4 speed but modified to start off in 1st gear to give the car better off the line pick up.
This was done by holding the car in 2nd gear until the brakes were released - to prevent creep at idle - and down shifting to first at the lightest movement of the accelerator. An electronic logic board to regulate this as well as transmission overload protection was installed in the 116s' right foot well - that's part of the system.
I believe the turbo's transmission was also strengthened internally to handle the engine's higher power.
In the mid 80s the torque converter was modified from the initial design.
