So I got my bug running kinda. Has a bad Knock though might need a motor. Friend of mine has a 73 porsche 914 motor with a 5 speed trans. Is it possible and how much work would it be to make that fit in my 73 super beetle?

hmm.. i bet you could find a conversion plate but you will have to mod stuff.. and you need a gene berg conversion kit..

I don't know the details but the story goes around that some guy transplanted a Porsche engine and transmission and ended up with a bug that had one forward speed and five very impressive reverse speeds.  Go down that road at your own peril.  MY72BUG

It is possible,
You didn't specify which engine is in the 914 if it is a type 4 the swap can be done fairly painless but the tranny is a big project regardless.

Now that they are back up has all the info you should need.
