I lust replaced my 2002 Jetta TDI 4sp auto with a 4 sp auto trans from a 99 Beetle (GAS). It seems like the gear ratios are different because it revs high in 4th Gear. Can anyone tell me if the ratios are different?

There are just too many to list....
Yes, VERY different. You need to find the correct transmission for your car, unless you never want to go over 50 and don't care about fuel economy.
