Mechanically is a perfect straight swap. No modification needed. you will just need to have your ECU remapped with 2,0 TS software. It should start on your 1,8 ECU and run quite fine, but have the 2,0 map loaded into it and job done.
I am just not sure if the 1,8-2,0 change is worth all of the work. If you could do it at home and can get a reasonably cheap 2,0 engine in good condition, why not. Otherwise its pretty expensive job for 10 BHP and few Nm. If your 1,8 is in perfect condition, runs fine, has fresh belts and low oil consumption, keep your 1,8 IMHO.
