Can I use a 65 turbo case with 64 cylinders, heads and pistons from a turbo engine?

Most cases are the same, keeping in the same family, 145 cu in vs 164 cu inch. Only the suffix of the stamped number changes.
So, yes, an RL case can be used with 64 cylinders, heads, pistons, rods, crank, cam...
Only the heads and cylinders need to be both 64, as the 64 cylinder barrel outer diameter is smaller than 65-69 cylinders. There are tricks to using 64 cylinders with 65-9 heads.
