MK6 Golf DPF compatable w/ 2015 Passat??
 
I recently sold my 2014 Golf back to VW after removing my DPF and was curious if I may be able to re-purpose the DPF piece of the system?
Can it even be attached to the turbo's output of the 2015 Passat?
Slight fabricating of the DPF would not be an issue if needed; I know it's a long shot but I wanted to ask before I post it for sale and buying one specifically for the 2015.
Thanks,
Joe

No; the layout of the emission control systems on the EA288 engine (2015) is entirely different from any of the prior models.

In making this statement I am using the conventional meaning of "attached to" (only using wrenches and sockets, not cutting torches and welders), and reasonable interpretations of "slight fabricating" (not tearing the whole front end of the car apart and changing EVERYthing and having to deal with the EA288 having EVERYthing involved in its emission control systems laid out differently from what the earlier models used).

Different turbo, different exhaust manifold, only use a Mk6 DPF is good for is another Mk6.

If you cut open the DPF and break out the ceramic media, then weld it back up, you got yourself a redneck DPF delete that's prob worth something to someone.

I was hoping that at least the hot side would be compatible, oh well.
Guess I'll put the delete system up for sale.
Thanks for the responses; I'll keep the stock system intact until I get another Rawtek piece.
I have a slight drone at 1200 rpm with the stock system and Malone's stage 2, is this typical?

1200 is not a good cruising rpm. Lugging territory. Try 1500+ rpm.

I agree, I normally activate Sport mode or manual mode with a downshift.

We don't notice any drone at 1,200 rpms. Stock exhaust at stg 2 tune.

Also 1,200 rpms is about 45-50mph in cruising back roads in 6th, she's not lugging, just plodding along. Our DSG is very willing to down shift if a hill is encountered and a bit more power is needed. Hopefully those with a 6MT down shift as well.
