To my knowledge the engine and transmission will bolt together if you are referring to a 2.5L V6 TDI.

(The 2.5L inline five is different and would not bolt to that trans AFAIK, but since you are posting in this sub-forum and say you have an AFN now, I assume this is a B5 platform car so the V6 is what you could consider.) The gas V6 engines came attached to similar 012 transmissions so the diesel V6 probably will bolt up as well, although from what I have seen the V6 TDI never was sold from the factory with the 012.

The ratios would be good enough. Don't know what you'd need to use for a clutch and flywheel, might be able to fit the gas V6 stuff but both that and the trans itself would probably be limited on torque capacity compared to the 6spd trans and larger clutches the V6 TDI engines were originally sold with.

I think the 2.5 V6 would be a neat engine to have but headgaskets are a piece of cake to change on the old VE 4 cylinder TDI engines. Would be much less work to fix your AFN than swap. If you did want a V6 TDI, probably easiest to fix and sell your AFN car and just buy a factory built V6 TDI Passat or Audi instead, since luckily for you, you can buy those where you are.
