As a TDI driver I have pondered this, but never done anything.

I only know a few things that may be useful
1) TDI's EGR cooler is HUGE, is water cooled, and from the looks of it could flow around %30 of what the intake manifold can flow
2) Just set the EGR to Close at WOT if you are concerned about power.
3) it makes a noticeable difference on gassers as well supra dropped 1~2 mpg when it was off (un-scientific test over about a year)
