Stock 172 internals with megane 225 turbo?

  Clio 182
Hi guys! I just have some questions as I am thinking about turboing my 172, I have seen some clios that use the stock engine and just slap a turbo, intercooler and some custom piping, and I have seen other slap a full megane 225 engine on it, I know that the megane pistons have a lower compression ratio as it is a turbo car, so basically my question is:
Can I turbo my clio by just using better injectors, and the turbo from a 225, and keep the stock engine? and if so, how much boost or bhp can stock internals take/make?

Thanks for reading guys!
