The first 3 versions mean pretty much the same, but would probably be better expressed as

I will do the same amount [of it] as you.

In most cases the "of it" is optional. "do" could be replaced with a more specific verb to clarify. For example

I will eat the same amount of it as you.

I will pay the same amount as you.

I will run the same distance as you.

The 4th version has a different meaning

I will perform the action the same way you do it.

but says nothing as to how much you will do compared to the other person.
