That explains it.ScanGauge called it EG1 when I first installed it.... they call it something else now...Catalyst Temperature
(Bank 1, Sensor 1)
I just noticed that what I HAD for EG1 is the same thing as you have for CAT 1.... that sure explains a lot! Duh! CAtalyst Temp
According to my Bluetooth adapter and Torque (on my android phone) I typically see peaks on the EGT of about 1100 F when not in regen, but have seen it go into the low 1300's during a regen!, cruising is something around 600 to 700. Idling EGT's somewhere between 360 and 400 depending on outside temps and if I have the AC on. I have taken to trying to make sure I am at or below 400 before turning the car off. I set an alarm to warn me when the car goes into regen, it plays a blairing alarm sound through the cars audio system. So far I've had 2 times when I was just about to turn the car off and it went into regen. My alarm is set for 1000 degrees at what I think is the entrance to the cat.Phew - sure is weird seeing the numbers I'm seeing now! These are going higher than in my F250 6.0 when pulling my 30' 5th wheel up a mountain!
Exactly, if my Dodge Cummins spikes over 1200F for long I start to back out of it, I have always owned Diesels but these DPF equipped rides are a new chapter for surePhew - sure is weird seeing the numbers I'm seeing now! These are going higher than in my F250 6.0 when pulling my 30' 5th wheel up a mountain!
I tried the same thing with VWoA with my 2014, but was told otherwise. My build date was March 2014 so the fix for the turbo problem was already in production by then. Your build date could have been as early as July 2013 when they switched over from the 2012's to 13's. It would be interesting to know the date the fix was made on the production line.OK, I sent a note to VWoA a few days ago regarding my 2014.
Here was their response, and included a PDF of the warranty extension already posted. So this must be VIN specific, as I've read others with 2014's are not receiving the same response on their Turbo coverage...
Dear Mr. Aaron,
Thank you for your patience while I got back to you.
It’s always a pleasure to hear from drivers who keep up with the news on their cars. I checked your VIN, and confirmed that we have extended the warranty on your Passat TDI’s turbocharger.
We’re now warrantying against manufacturer’s shortcomings in materials or workmanship for 10 years or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first, from the original in service date of 10/28/2013. I’ve also attached a document with describes this warranty in greater detail.
It’s my goal to make your ownership as fun and easy as possible, so if you ever have any further questions about your Passat, please don’t hesitate to email me again.

It's actually a reasonable assumption if you're familiar with Volkswagen's history on problem resolution.Just the same, it's also a bold assumption that nothing was changed.

Jason,No MIL, DTC stored was starter mechanical blockage or electrical fault. The old starter felt rough when you tried to turn it.
So I guess this is a first for most people? She's naked!!
Sure does make the job of replacing a DPF and turbo easy.

Nice teaser...can you elaborate please.I don't believe the oil pipes are actually different, just replaced to prevent some debris from damaging the new turbo.
OTOH I just performed a software update that lists improved emmissions and revised warm up strategy in the changes section. 23N5 software update.
