their is so much technical data these days, I usually contact a used parts recycler and have him look in the exchange book even if a fee is charged

Ditto on 7jimmy7`s answer.

The first issue that comes to mind is whether or not the '95 Golf is using OBDI or OBDII. If using OBDII (ECU and wiring), I would think the 97 engine will work.

My initial forum scan shows that OBD2 cars will have 2 O2 sensors (fore and aft of the CAT) and a smog pump.

It has a obd1 in it currently. I've been told I could use a obd2 block and heads but need the intake and exhaust from my odb1

Sounds correct to me. I believe the distributor from the OBD1 must be retained as well.
