BL20p G4 Processor Upgrade

Does anyone know if it is possible to upgrade the processors on a BL20p G4 Blade Server from the 5140 and 5148 dual-core processors to the E5345 quad-core processors.

I have some BL20p G4 blades running the E5345 and would like to upgrade the dual-core (5140) BL20p G4 blades to the same quad-core processors.

Any info on how to upgrade and if its possible would be appreciated.

Quad-cores are mentioned.

but according to Intels processor "roadmap", the 5345 needs a different chipset than the 5140.

So i'm not sure the MoBo accepts the quad's.
