Difference between a 1515 1Y and 1515 2Y?

I am running a 1515 1Y in one of my boats using 4s5400mah cells. The boat is a rocket but the run times are pretty low. I am thinking about going to a HV setup using two 4s packs in series for 8s. Since I am doubling the voltage I would need to run the 1515 2Y motor with half the KV of the 1Y. Are the two motors identical besides the wind or are they built differently?

That would be pretty much the case--double the voltage--1/2 the Kv and half the current--with the same prop. Motors have the same stator and rotor.

Now I have to try and figure out how many milliamps I can drop going from 4s to 8s. Right now I am running 5500mah and if I go 8s I think the largest pack I can fit is a 3000 mah. That may be to much of a drop though.
