I'm afraid that, unless you want to put them in the back cargo area, you
have to tear the thing apart.  At least you'll have to remove the old
engine.  Then you're going to need to pick which one because both
of them won't fit in the engine bay.  Although the 5 cyl came in that
chassis, you will have to get some additional parts.  I don't know
about the TDI but, chances are, you could make it work with a finite
amount of energy and ingenuity.
