My friend just blew his tranny out of his 98 Jetta TDI but the 5th gear is still good. would I be able to swap it into my 4k and how hard would it be to do if I can? TIA

It won't work its a whole different transmission family. The TDI has a O2a, you have an O2O.

Best bet is to pull the TDI 5th gear set, sell it here in the Golf III/Jetta III classifieds or Corrado Classifieds and use the money to buy a 0.71:1 gearset from an 020 transmission.
