Yes, it's from a low mile B5 gasser. A lot of folks on here poo poo the swap and I too thought it was a horrible idea until I drove one. It's awesome!! I love the way it shifts. It has such a positive shift in every gear that's as smooth as butter. No joke, you can easily shift with a single finger. It's awesome around town and does really well on the highway. Sure it turns a higher rpm, but I still get over 600-650mi/tank. I made a 1200mi trip from Albuquerque and it did very well. I enjoy driving it far more than my B5 with the DUK transmission.

Nice! So it's from a V6, right? V6 has lower gearing than the 1.8T tranny's

That I'm not sure about.
You might could find out based on this:
55mph = 1800rpm
65mph = 2500rpm
75mph = 3000rpm
