B5 Passats use a turbo that will interchange with the B5 A4 turbo. The part number may or may not be different (depending on year of the Passat), but the fitment will be the same. Also they are the same size turbo.

If it were me, I would install the Passat turbo (don't spend more than $100 on it), rebuild your current turbo, and install your turbo after it's rebuilt.
