Way too much to consider, unless you're a rich guy who's bored of his fleet of ferraris and wants to throw his money at something else.

If you can use the differential from a Mazda 323Gti or a Nissan Pulsar/Sunny Gti-R it'll be a good start. Maybe an 80's Audi quattro could be used as a donor

If you're good with fabrication it might not be a very expensive job. Maybe you might need to build a new chassis from the donor car then graft the body panels of your Gti onto it.
