The stroke is the same. Doesn't necessarily follow that the stroke being the same gives the same compression ratio. I'd have thought it more likely that the pistons differ - "taller" pistons (above the gudgeon pin) will be higher cr than "shorter" ones. Are the turbo blocks reinforced? I'd have thought it easiest to lob an entire turbo engine in.
