    If an experienced VAG diesel tuner is saying don't do it - I wouldn't do it.

    It’s too soon, 3,000km is not long enough distance. Keep an eye on the DPF health for at least 20,000km

    The combination egr & cooler & filter was replaced as a complete unit in my case.
    I was told blocking egr without removing dpf will cause problems, I tried it anyway, after about 5000km mine went into unregenerable limp mode with blocked dpf, my understanding is that you need the egr to get the high temperature needed to burn the soot in dpf.
    Hi Kombi, Whats the FB group called?
