Yes, it can be done. I know several people who are running close-ratio boxes in race-prepped 914s. Note that 2nd gear is a part of the mainshaft so you cannot change it, you can only change 1, 3, 4, 5.

I am pretty sure that the VW gearsets do not fit. Not certain, but pretty sure. But lots of gearsets were available for Porsche's 901 gearbox over the years, and they all work in ours. Paul Guard at Guard Transmission is the transmission guru, particularly for racing boxes. gears@gte.net Note that the best does not usually come real cheap.
