From what I understand, most guys prefer to have a little more stroke to give the the bottom end of the powerband a little more umph until the turbo can spool up. You can make up for the reduced ability to rev by changing the rod ratio and lightening up all the components. This is the same thing we do with the 914 when we get up into the 2.6+ litre range (4 cylinder of course).
