Default Is it possible to have an OBD2 port in an mTDI AHU on an 87 VW Vanagon Syncro ?

The engine swap on my 87 Vanagon Syncro does not appear to have included an OBD2 port and I would really like to replace the 6 mechanical engine gauges that monitor the mtdi engine but take a large portion of my dashboard with an app that can run on an iphone or tablet (like DashCommand) and take its info from an inexpensive bluetooth OBD2 reader connected to an OBD2 port. This engine was previously in a 1998 Jetta and I assume it must have had an OBD2 diagnostic port since it was made after 1996. Is there a wire/s somewhere that would allow me to get OBD2 data to an obd2 port?

I had a previous tdi powered vanagon (not an mTDI) that had an OBD2 port and allowed me to use a scangauge which worked well.
Any assistance or suggestion if that is possible or pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. This is my first post here although I have owned 3 tdi powered vehicles.
Thank you
