I doubt it would fit.  The TT is built on a FWD Golf chassis, and uses
a transverse mount engine.  Even if you could shoehorn the V6 in there
it seems unlikely that the stock transaxle would mate up to it.

Turbo engines are definitely harder to make emissions clean that
naturally aspirated ones, so don't discount the environmental reasons.
It might be that Audi can get away with bringing a few over (maybe with
very expensive emissions controls?) but can't justify it across the
model range.
