In that case then i'd suggest cross-referencing part numbers.
I imagine they will be the stronger land type pistons, so should be more durable than old VVC ones, but if there are no structural differences such as dishing for CR changes then they are probably a straight swap.

It's a rare engine where the turbo uses NA pistons, but if it is only shorter rods then it may be ingenious cost saving from MG Rover.
