tdi swap

Hi guys, I finally got my self a jeep again, I bought it pretty smashed up for $1000. The jeep is pretty much mint other than some small surface rust, anyways all the damage was in the front end (fenders, hood, grill) I took all that off today and got It down to only the motor, got it boosted and it fired right up, it runs and moves now. Its the 4cyl auto... I want to do a swap to the jetta tdi, with a manual trans. ive never done a motor swap but I am very mechanically inclined and am confident I could do it over some time.

Do you guys recommend a tdi or what should I consider? I thought about doing the 4L inline 6, and boring to a 4.2. Don't really want a v8

So heres some questions for the experienced, what t case is currently in my jeep?

Would I need to change all the wiring harnesses on the jeep for the motor swap?

If I were to do the tdi swap whats my best option for a transmission? (a manual) and a tcase?

Any tips for me would be great, I have changed transmissions and clutches and I believe I could change a motor but doing a swap is completely different and maybe im wrong but It could be a lot bigger of a project than I think.

thanks for the help anyone/everyone! I would upload a pic of the jeep but I don't know how lol
