fans in MBP Retina and MBP interchangeable?

I would like to know if there is a chance to get the improved fans of the RetinaModell into the normal MBP.

As you have all parts there, I would appreciate an answer ;-)

As you can see in step #10 of the tear down on the standard MBP, the new machine does not use the new fan: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2012 Teardown

I'm sure there will be information in a month or so on the advisablity of a possible upgrade to this new type of fan but these parts are not available yet. Give it some time.
