Anything is possible but I wouldn't bother. You'd need to change more than the engine.... exhaust etc???
The price difference between an FSI and a TFSI probably isn't as much as you think. I went from a 2.0 FSI to a 2.0 TFSI with DSG which was 3 years newer and I only had to pay about another £2-3k I think it was.
That is the route I would take if you wanted a quicker engine.
as above but if you have a smashed up donor fsiT then would be prety east but a good few long hours
engine & gearbox, ecu, keys, exhaust, the wiring loom in the engine bay, all the different coolant pipes/oil cooler for turbo etc, perhaps driveshafts. As above, unless you had a smashed donor & were able to do all the work yourself it would be crazy dear & your insurance would be no doubt dearer than a stock tfsi as car is considered modified.
