Timing belt, DSG service and delete at the same time?

I have a 2014 mk6 cjaa tdi sportwagen about to hit 120k miles. It will be due for 120k DSG service (with fuel filter replacement) this oil change. I also have timing belt/water pump kit to install. Lastly. I have Eco dpf delete and tune (dsg also) kit to do.

I’ve done the dsg service myself twice at 40k and 80k and am familiar with it. I’ve got the instruction guide from here for the timing belt service and kit from ID parts w/metalnerd tools. Sounds like it may take about 6 hours.

I don’t know how long it will take to remove sensors and delete tune. I have shop with a lift at my house.

Would you do all these projects at the same time over a weekend? Or 3 separate, independent service jobs? I have other vehicles I can drive if it take longer. My thought was it maybe beneficial to knock it all out at same time? But worried if something goes wrong with delete tune or timing it may be hard to diagnose which is which.

Appreciate you experts’ thoughts. Thanks!

To be honest, the timing belt, delete are on the other side of the engine so I would do the transmission fluid change separately. The delete is a solid 4-6 hours and the timing belt is likely 2 hours. You can get it done in one full day without too much trouble.

I say try to knock it all out in a day. Then you have bragging rights if successful.
