I think he's talking about the old 3 handle faucets. hot,diverter cold. And the answer is no. There is no pressure balanced faucet that i am aware of that will drop in replace the old 3 handle faucets.
Some companies have single handle pressure balanced and non pressure balanced valves that are interchangeable. (the complete valve, not just the cartridge.)
You will have to do some tile work. I just replaced two old 3 handle units mounted just above the tub with Delta Monitor II two handle pressure balanced valves mounted 2' above the tub. I also moved the shower head up 8". I had to replace about a dozen tiles on each shower.
I prefer the Delta faucets because they have a separate volume control and temperature control.
