Are the clutch assemblies the same on a manual tdi as a regular gas motor? I have a 2003 jetta tdi, any info would be great thanks.

Pretty much, same set up anyway except for the flywheel maybe, I don't know if you guys got the dmf on the petrol/gas cars. There's a write up in the faq about getting the gearbox off and clutch info.:)

It varies, all 4 cylinder are the same if the clutch kit are the same ie, ie, sachs clutch kit won't fit on luk DMF flywheel. 6 cyl flywheels use diff bolt pattern but their clutches will fit depending on kit.

The throwout bearings should also match the type of pressure plate you're using... If you're converting to a single-mass flywheel setup, then be aware that Valeo clutches require a Valeo throwout bearing (it's thicker)...

If you're giving up on your stock Dual Mass Flywheel, you have a few options... usually the cheapest way to go is to find a good used flywheel from a G60 Corrado or an A3/B4 body 1Z or AHU motor and get a Sachs or Valeo VR6 clutch kit (disk, pressure plate, throwout bearing)... If you can't find a good used flywheel, most of the regular online vendors who frequent this site and the TDIclub have kits ready to go...

Since you're in Toronto, see what Precision Tuning has available or ask Brandon at DCB Automotive Repairs what he can come up with... (it may be easier than shipping from the U.S. vendors... Roseland Technical Services in Nova Scotia is another well-regarded supplier...)
