on an 01 you may get more than you bargain for even if it bolts up witch I doubt, that can be found out with the parts interchange data owned by part recyclers, it's the engine control system that will give you grief

Keep looking for a 1.8T. Although the transmissions are the same (both 02J's) the cost to swap would not be worth it. If you do decide to go down that route, throw a VR6 clutch in there as they can handle more power (around 250 at the crank).
