I think they did it mainly for engine smoothness. The earlier one is lighter, so it has it's advantages too. I stuck with the earlier style for weight reasons. I just had the bottom end balanced.
I can't say for sure, but I don't see why you can't put the newer one in there. Everything else in the bottom end is the same.
