Engine swap for your 96 2L Passat? Go buy a MK2 Golf.. and swap the motor from your Passat into it. Probably the best thing you can do with it.

Had to be a smartass. On a serious note. Look into turbocharging it. Start at vwturbo.com and look around. Really the only motor swap upgrade for your car would be a VR6... at which point I ask why you didn't just get a VR6 Passat in the first place.
