Default mTDI AHU into '87 DIYDOKA ("Van-no-mo")

Just about ready to yank the 1.9 IDI turbo engine out of Vanomo and install the mTDI engine. Trans has been totally rebuilt and now the only thing holding me back is selection of a pressure plate. So should I go for the unit from a VR6 or a 1.8T?
The engine will be running a Land Rover 300 mechanical pump and some Bosio 520 injectors. With a water-to-air intercooler I'm shooting for about 120hp. Too much for the stock clutch but not so much as to require something aftermarket.
So what should I use? And is there a difference in the VR6 or 1.8T pressure plates depending on the year?
