Great choice, I have the same, but slightly earlier in 2009.
I want to do the intercooler upgrade as I hear it is beneficial, more so after a remap.
DPF delete, I've left mine in place. Unless you're going for a high stage of tune, or louder noise removing the DPF won't give much benefit. I hear it's good up to 320-330bhp. Also you will have to replace the down pipe with the DPF each year for your MOT as it will fail without a 'DPF' in place. Also it will be short DPF, the longer ones were upto 2007/2008, I think.
I did a DIY back box delete, cost me £140 and on rolling road I got 260bhp so +15bhp.
EGR delete can only be done with DPF delete as DPF will throw errors.
Swirl flap is a 'common' problem that can be fixed by modified actuator arms for about a tenner, then no more problems. These are beneficial to the way your engine makes power. Remove these and you will lose bottom end grunt.
I had mine remapped and rolling roaded at More-BHP in Crewe. 310bhp and 643Nm (480ft/lbs). Only mods I have is the back box delete.
Going to get a bigger intercooler and the ECU will adjust to the cooler air going in so a few more horses. I think I will try and record the inlet temps via VCDS before and after to actually see the benefits.
Ps I know the 3.0TDi went to DSG gearbox in either late 2009 or 2010. Is yours a manual? Just the DSG has a lower torque threshold.
