The temperatures are just too high at 1000F+ to stop oil and air flow. The Turbo, DPF and entire exhaust system is seeing far more active regeneration cycles and work load then prior to the fix.

I will rarely interrupt an active DPF regen. Practice I have been using since my first common rail VW. But during my highway commute I am fortunate to normally not get caught in the middle of a full regen pulling into the parking lot and I do not drive the car around town on the weekends.

I have always run a scan gauge plumb into the lower center console to monitor EGT/DPF temps.

I understanding what you are saying.
However if it as bad as it is being made out to be I would think the engineers at VW would have implemented a turbo timer in the vehicle.

It will be interesting to see if there is a rash of oil sludging and turbo failures on recalled TDI's that would cause... another recall.

DPF's are dropping dead already after the fix.

Along with a regen awareness do you think a (non delete) tune is the answer for us poor emmision area guys? My 11 CPO only has till 2/21 on the DPF.
