Default 2015 X12 to 2016 x12 pod upgrade?

Is it possible to upgrade a 2015 x12 from the pod that uses the pill inserts to the 2016 type that uses spacers, or is it incompatible?

Thanks

So, the pod plate from the 2015 has a different part number (371146) compared to the 2016 (371150.) They look identical in shape though, aside from the hole positions for the bulkheads. I'm wondering if I can put the entire 2016 assembly (bulkheads, top and bottom pod plates, etc...) onto the 2015. Has anyone tried it?

Have not tried it, But looking at manuals and my 15. I think it would take the plates, tube brace, axle eccentrics, and maybe a bottom pod plate. Not sure why the bottom plate has a different part number for the 2 cars. Top plate is the same part number on both cars. With X Ray parts prices, might be over half the price of a X12 2020, lol.
