Type RB turbos on a Type R ?

Hey guys just wondering if there would be any problems replacing the type R n3g1 turbos with the ones from a type rb lower hp engine? My secondary is starting to leak oil and i have a spare set off a 2001 model rb. My car is a 2000 with everything stock except a catback. From what i can see everything looks to be exactly the same except for the compressor housings. Guess my main concern is if the diameter of the y pipes and the intakes are the same. Also if there would be a noticeable power loss (prob negligible if my turbos are on there way out anyway).

Nope, you can swap them straight over. Biggest thing the later turbos really had was better/faster response. Everything will bolt right up.
