Although the displacement is the same, the engines aren't.

Of course they aren't.  Everyone knows that--everyone except people who
are willing to lie or ignore the truth in order to try to make the world
something it isn't and never will be.

Perhaps you need to study the NZ engine series.

Let's see; the Prius uses the 1NZ-FXE, and Atkinson cycle engine

The Scion uses the 1NZ-FE, an Otto cycle engine.

Similar, but different, engines.

The only real difference is the head and/or pistons and cams.

I have been trying to find part numbers for the head and pistons to find out
which is different to give the higher expansion ratio.

And once again just so we are clear the 1NZ-FXE has conventional connecting
rods not the special linkages of a true Atkinson.
