964 turbo engine stronger than naturally aspirated?

Does the 964 3.6 naturally aspirated and the 964 3.6 turbo use the same connecting rods? Or does the turbo have an upgraded connecting rod that can handle more hp & torque?

Is there anything done to the turbo motor to make it handle the extra power? Or is the same as the naturally aspirated motor.

What is the maximum hp and torque that the stock 964 3.6 turbo motor can handle safely. (Without massive engine internal failure)?

The '94 3.6 T engine and the 964 3.6 have the same connecting rods, the turbo compression ratio
however is quite a bit lower than the normally aspirated like 11.1 aspirated and 8.5 .1 turbo .
The 3.6 turbo likely can easily handle 5 or 600 HP with a few mods conservatively.
