Default TM upgrade

For some maybe a stupid question and for that sorry in advance, but searching this forum I didn't find the answer. Has anyone thought or tried upgrading/swaping traction motors with more powerful or lighter ones? Is this even possible or just pure fiction?
I know Powersource is doing some upgrades on HV battery pack, so it's just a thought...

@PowerSource is the authority on this, but as I understand it, the inverters are programmed for the current motors and just swapping out the motors may create more problems than improvements.

There is also FiskerPhilly new shop that is working on some efforts related to swamping and different configurations -- FAB maybe a sticky on the subject for one-stop updates on the options ?
