Replacing a 5s processor with one from an SE

I was wondering if it would be possible to interchange the the A9 chip from an iphone SE and put it into an iphone 5s. I understand there would be some performance downgrades so it wouldn't be as fast as a normal SE, but would it be possible and still be faster than the A7 chip in the stop 5s.

Not possible, the iOS firmware would block it from working, also the processor is paired with the baseband as well so it would get stuck at apple logo from that too.
