Can you do it? Yes
Should you do it? Up to you.
Maybe check out these pickups so you could replace both pickups and be out about the same money for the one DiMarzio.

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.
I've got a Peavey Raptor Pro EXP, nice $130 guitar, put a Seymour Duncan lipstick in I got from a friend cause it's my first guitar.

It's all up to you, are you gonna keep it as your favorite guitar?

Well I'm all for changing pickups but i don't recommend the X2N. It does a lot of sounds nicely. Doesn't really sound all that good for anything. Quite muddy for high gain stuff and not crisp enough for classic rock / lower gain stuff.
