'06 Jetta TDI timing belt job info needed

Usually spend all my time here on the 6.0 forum. I am a full-time heavy truck mechanic. Just recently had an extended friend ask me if I would be interested in replacing the timing belt in an '06 Jetta TDI. They were quoted $800-1,000 for timing belt replacment including a new water pump. No engine issues, just for maintenance.
1. Any VW specific tools needed for the job?
2. A detailed parts list of all commonly replaced parts/gaskets/seals to do a complete and correct repair would be great.
3. I see my local Napa has parts listings for belt, tensioner, pulley, water pump ect., or I'm I better off getting OEM parts from a VW dealer?
4. Any tech specs, or need to know info would be great.
5. What is typical book time for this job?
Sorry for all the Q's. I do wrench full-time as stated, just used to gear driven timing components on big diesels so I'm a little off-kilter with timing belts.

'06 F-250 CC SB, lifted 10.5 Rize Industries, 38" Nitto Muds on 20" Moto Metal 951, Bilstien 7100 reservoirs, Fabtech Dirt Logic 2.0 Steer stabs with Rize bracketry, MBRP 4" turbo back cool duals- no muff or kitty, CCV mod, coolant filter kit made by me, rest of 6.0 stock for now.

No problem, hope that helps. If not there are many discusions on this topic over at TDIclub.com.

I to am a large engine diesel tech, these things are so damn small. But fairly easy and you don't need a crane to remove a head or piston. I don't have any of the specialty tools needed to do a timing belt on these cars. I really don't plan on buying them either. I do my own work on all my vehicles, but tool cost vs labor cost to have someone do it, not counting my time it's just not cost effective to do that job myself. And I don't plan on keeping this car longer than one timming belt change, 80k miles schedule.

Good luck, make sure you find someone with VCDS to check timing after belt change.
