You could add a V10 but I would think that you would need to upgrade a bit more than just the engine bay, the R5 was the work horse model so unlike the V6's there are a lot of uncommon parts with the higher spec Touaregs.
Oh BTW posting your location may provide some helpful replies, as this site is dominated by American's that don't have R5 2.5 models

Flipper Dog

Now - Audi Q5 TDI and Golf R Line.

Retired - 2nd gen (T3) V6 TDI -
Very big hole in roof / Vanilla flavoured outside / Black Nappa inside with a brush of aluminium / OEM tow pack / Dark glass windows / Lots of cameras / Warm wheel with paddles / RNS850 / Extra real spare wheel / Some other stuff.

Had but now gone

Never build what you can buy...a complete engine with all accessories would be incredibly expensive to buy, and you don't have the brakes or suspension to handle a V10. You'd basically need to rebuild your entire vehicle.

Just get a replacement R5, sell your vehicle, then buy a V10.

I would think it would be economically unviable, let alone mechanically doable. Even if you could technically manage it, you'd never recoup the cost. Better off either replacing/rebuilding the donk, or getting a V6 TDI. There's a used (wrecking) Crafter 2.5 TDI on Ebay with a donk.....really cheap maybe to get the powerplant and scavenge the parts!
