Can a Mosquito hotend fit in a Prusa MK2 upgrade kit?

I have a Prusa MK2 and have ruined my hot end. A giant blob of PLA formed on the hot end, encapsulating the thermistor & heater wires. The safest thing to do is to replace it. 

Since I need to replace it, I'm taking this opportunity to consider an upgrade. I would like a lighter extruder with better feed capability, so the upgrade kit is attractive. If it will fit, the Mosquito hot end would top off this great upgrade. Will it fit?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

In short, no : (

The Mosquito and the E3D-V6 hotends have different dimensions. Without radical changes in our Prusa MK2 upgrade kit housing, it’s not possible to perform a direct swap between them.

Here at Bondtech we are considering to create a new version that will fit the Mosquito hotend, but tests are undergoing and we are still not sure how will it be possible. So the Prusa MK2 upgrade kit with Mosquito hotend is a project under development but will not be available in the next quarters.
