Turbo petrol engines as a rule always run lower compression ratio, witness original Renault F1 turbo with compression so low that it was difficult to start.
I doubt that the principle is different for a diesel.
Never thought that the 5 cyl engine need a turbo myself.Had one in the VW LT 2006 ish, went around France and Spain very comfitbly.
