  I'd presume it'd be simplest to use the diesel Vanagon setup but 
it sounds like that gasser tranny that Rudy has would work, even 
better since it's taller geared.  That'd be the main reason to try 
and use a TDI tranny but then you have to build a shift mechanism 
from scratch and set the engine in the middle of the van instead of 
the rear.
  With VW you never know, the final drive gear or some of the tranny 
gears might even be interchangeable for a custom ratio tranny!
