Yes as turbo plugs seal at the bottom so it will give you more cylinder volume

Cheers

In comparison to a shorter plug, the longer reach plug will go deeper into the combustion chamber , therefore increase compression , even though the area inside the plug has more volume , the walls around that area also increases and open air that was already open its now just taken up by more metal. So the compression increases.

A turbo plug does not enter the cylinder, it seal at the bottom so this is not correct.

Thought we were talking about regular. Then your right , it will stand higher so less compression on turbo plug long. It also doesnt seal from the bottom , but the sides as it tapers or cones.
