Maybe see if you can get a pressure reading off the two glow plugs that have the sensor on them? I think the CATA uses two of them..... if you see a major difference between those readings, it could potentially mean a hurt engine, and would warrant doing a compression test as next step.

It should've registered soft codes at the very least pulling fuel due to EGT limit (I think it's 850 stock) unless they jack'd it in the tune.

I kid you not the day I started diagnosing the issue my 2014 jetta pre turbo failed outright all of a sudden. Flashing glow plug and codes. That's when I had the idea to check the touareg. Very much a coincidence but weird.

Also one thing annoyed me is the price.
Egt 1 sensor in the states is $73.85. In Canada.... $285!!??
Funny you say that. NOx sensors in Canada are like $1000, in the states they are like couple hundred bucks.
