Not really the same at all other than condensing air into the cylinder. Mechanisms are completely different. One is belt driven that builds boost dependent as RPMS climb and turn the pulley faster making low-end boost much more difficult vs. Turbo cars using the exhaust flow to spin the turbo and condense air which can be making boost extremely low.
So mechanism and delivery of power is drastically different and concepts nowhere near the same
