Twin Turboing an N52?

This is probably a stupid question, but is it possible to take the turbos from an N54 engine and retrofit them onto an N52?

I'm not saying I'm going to do this, but I'm just wondering if it's possible?

You might be able to make the hardware fit but that doesn't mean it will run. You'd have to deal with increased fueling requirements, engine management, etc. In short this is a very very bad idea. The two engines are nothing alike.
