If you do a google search for t4 engine swap you will finds loads of info on fitting the 1.9 tdi engine from a mk3 Golf but next to nothing on fitting the pd engine and the reason being is its pretty straight forward to fit the tdi but areal pain to fit the pd.The main problem is that the t4 engine is fitted tilting forward and bits like the sump manifolds and gearbox are modified to suit and thats why the 1.9 tdi swap is so popular as these bits will fit with little or no modifications. The other reason is that the electrical systems are also very similar whereas the mk4 system is very different.

Have a look in the t4 engine and gearbox section every thing you will need to know and there's probably a good few hours worth of reading on there to keep you busyT:
