Hi mate & welcome!
I'm not sure my self, it'll go in i guess it's wether the gear boxes etc are the same. What year is the car & what series are the two engines?

EDIT:
Oh hang on the 416 is a K series. has the 2.0 t got a gearbox?

I've seen a 420 Turbo, in fact I got my exhaust off one from a breakers and I had to shorten tailpipe for my 220!;)

It will really fly with that lump in it. Have you got the MEMS and wiring from the 2.0T donor? It will be alot eaiser with all the ancilary bits.

Its also worth getting all the sensors from the donor as there are some subtle difference. Crank sensor was the big one. Some pulse every revolution others pulse every quarter revolution or something like that.

The MEMS also controls the Immobiliser so you might need to either change door locks or bypass the immobiliser.
