Don't forget your prop shaft is shorter than other Touaregs if you go for a replacement shaft!

Rule of thumb is don't build what you can buy. In this case you certainly can't buy it and it sure would be sexy as hell to have a Lamborghini/R8/S6/S8 V10 under the hood.

Obviously the gasoline powered 5.2 normally aspirated V10 found in the aforementioned vehicles has nothing at all in common with the 5.0 V10 twin turbo TDI.

Plug and play would be a stretch...There will very likely be some serious work involved. That said you'd end up with an exceptionally unique vehicle.

If it was my dime however, I'd go with a W12 swap. Rationale is that it absolutely fits, parts diagrams exist for this exact configuration, parts themselves can be ordered through a VW dealer, there isn't any engineering involved. If you want to talk plug and play, this would be as close as you can get for an engine swap. IMO the W12 sound trumps the 5.2 V10 sound....and the W12 resides in the Bentley . If you're feeling ambitious, go with the twin turbo W12 out of a Continental. If you want something less insane, get the normally aspirated W12 out of an A8 or Phaeton.

Personal choice stay away from the tubbies go for the W12 NA. Fewer problems and the cheaper option. Assuming you can get a W12 and gearbox for the right price, but as I was crucified because I want to re map my V10, why, the gearbox wont take it, I am a wanker and whatever else you would like to call me, then the answer is why?

If it comes down to sound, just put a straight through exhaust. with a solenoid switch to route the exhaust either straight through or via the Mufflers. Many old rodders did that as a simple way of switching from street to track.

Shouldn't need a new gearbox. The same gearbox in the R50 handles 627 ft. lb. of torque just fine.

Thank you. I will get it done though, modest increase in BHP and a good increase in torque too.

I love the way the turbos are placed, how have he done that ? if he can do that on a W12 then we can do it on a V10 (secretly I am thinking that the W12 is shorter engine by probably two pistons length). I think it is just a little longer than the V6 engine.

I think you are correct...the W12 is based on two VR6s (hence the W). The 5.2 V10 is based on two of the 2.5L inline 5s.

I'm not sure if the VR6 is shorter than an inline 5...but the original purpose of the VR6 was to fit a 6 cyl in the length of a 4 cyl engine compartment...back the the 2.8L VR6 days
