^^^ this. your rudder has been designed such that the center of effort is placed properly, making it larger or smaller will change the overall charecteristics of your boats handling (not just while turning). also, as mentioned before, the length of the keel, and hull shape will have a great impact on the turning radius, even if the rudders are placed and shaped identically.
