With a manual you connect your motor to the transmission, set a few variables in the controller if it has them, and figure out your safe and ideal speeds for each gear.

With an automatic, in addition to the above, the motor has to be idled and the transmission configured for the right shift points, which may involve messing with the ECU or other control circuits depending on the donor.

There are some threads on automatics you can read for details.
