anything is possible.

you would need the loom, clocks, keys - maybe even the fuse board (whole cars loom)..

id say not worth the hassle and resale would be impossible.

all mk4s are slow even the turbos - its the nature of the beast.

id go direct replacement, i wouldn`t even upgrade to a more powerful engine as with that you would have to do the brakes, suspension (are std mk4s rear drums?) gearbox, maybe fuel pump.

no point building what you can buy, fix it with the same engine or sell it spares repairs.
