Shimano Ultegra 6600 Short to Long Cage

Can an Ultegra short cage rear derailleur be converted to a long cage? I have a long cage 105 and a short cage Ultegra and would like to swap. I have a triple, so must use a long cage. Has anyone done this, or had it done?

Why dont you just use the 105? They are virtually identical except for weight

I probably will, absolutely nothing wrong with 105 - put 6000+ miles on my last 105 group with absolutely ZERO problems. I just had this Ultegra laying around and wanted to put it to use. The 105 LC came on my new Specialized Roubaix Triple.
