I bought a 2001 1.8t beetle with a blown engine, and I was wondering if it was possible to swap it out for the tdi engine? Has anyone tried This

It is certainly possible. But you'll need wiring, the ECU, etc. Basically everything in the engine bay. You should be able to find another 1.8T to swap in and it will be much easier.

You will also have to swap transmissions, gas and diesel transmissions are geared differently. Also if it’s an automatic transmission it just wouldn’t be worth the effort.
