What do you mean by old and new? They've been making them since the 60's.

If you want to put an R56 engine in an R53... no way, there's absolutely nothing that will work or line up. The engine is rotated 180 degrees but I doubt it would fit anyways, the computer is different, which also controls almost every aspect of the car, etc etc.

If you want a turbo on an R53, just take off the supercharger and add a turbo. It's completely possible.
