Not exactely, tie rod are different 8you need to use the gti ones), oil reservoir is different and if you don't want to relocate you have to use the gti one with its hoses. Steering pinion is different and even the steering joint is longer in the gti. I'm doing the same conversion, Maybe the next month I'll have finished so I'll be able to list each modification is needed. By the way my gti is 1990 (mk2).

Good news, you can use aftermarket steering rack (if you go lhd I listed manufacturer and part number below).
Pipe lines for lhd (gti) are available in europe just from one distributor and I let you now where as well as soon as I verify availability.
Finally the pump is same as 4wd.
Steering joint is supposed to be allright the one from gti rhd with p/s, not sure though.
