Comression ratio is determined by the rotors. Turbo engines have rotors with a deeper combustion bathtub, so the compression ratio is lower. You cannot change the compression ratio without dissasembling the motor and changing the rotors. Also keep in mind that the turbo engines have other advantages...it's almost always better (and cheaper in the long run) to sell your non-turbo car and buy a turbo one than it is to convert one to the other.
