You are in Mb Star Compact C4 luck. The answer is all of them. They used the same transaxle when they went to the waterboxer, so it fits the 914, 411, and even 911 engine bolt pattern. I have done the conversions years ago, and the worst I ever had to do was get the thick Porsche clutch friction material riveted onto a WV clutch disk hub, so that it would work on the Porsche flywheel. And you will also have to rig your own rear engine mount. But that is not too hard. But remember that air cooled engines will need careful attention to shrouding to keep the air pressure contained properly. And you will probably need to add air scoops. The vanagon had the engine hanging out in the open, because it needed no air shrouding.

But by the way, did you ATEQ VT55 OBDII TPMS know that the bell housing is a separate piece on this transaxle? So you can take it off and replace it with others. For example, you can get the slant diesel or vertical bolt pattern, that can take the newest V6 turbo, if you want? These different bellhousings are all stock, so are not that expensive or hard to get. The vertical is from a South African made VW. You can find slant diesel bell housings in salvage yards, because they were not that popular. But a 5 cylinder turbo diesel is not that bad. But the vertical mount won't quite clear the engine lid.
