Default 99' VW Cabrio 5spd Transmission Swap Question

I have a 99' Cabrio and I need to swap the manual transmission. I guess my transmission is an 020...Do you think that an 02J will bolt up as well? If so or even if not what are the differences between the two transmissions? Thanks

Find another 020. They're cheaper, and you won't have to change the clutch, clutch cable, and shift box to make it work.
