correct correct, sorry I found my answer just after posting here. b5a4 1.8 turbo is only compatible with passat.

Actually they are the exact same motor and can be swapped I have seen that done directly, I would think though it would have to be a longitudinal engine though.

I'm pretty sure if you can get all the right accessories for an a4 you can swap over, mounts, manifolds, etc... I think the blocks are the same. Someone prove me wrong if I am though

To the OP, you already answered your own question.

Jetta? No
Passat? Yes

they are not interchangeable. if you were to try it, you would need the transverse exhaust manifold and some custom exhaust work...and it might still not work....i wouldn't try it.
