No, not on a driver, not without modifying the O/S engine mount. If you had a 1.1 or 1.3 mk1 Golf then it would be a doddle.
I once did the mod the other way around........put a 1.8 into a 1.1 mk1 golf. I had a donor car and cut the o/s mount off the donor one and welded it to the 1.1 chassis.
If I don't get the engine sorted on my polo gt then I may well slap a 1.8 Golf digifant lump in there, be a very similar mod and it just so happens I have one kicking around
