Thanks.

The ever so slight increase is really only noticeable at idle.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

My third regen came around 720 miles. Since the interval is about 6x longer than OEM should I expect the diesel particulate filter to last much longer than the initial 18k miles on the 2014 OEM tune?

Add 300ml of TCW3 2 stroke oil and your engine will quieten back down again. Did this with my WK after I installed the GDE tune and it works a treat.
Now add it to my WK2.

Cheers, Craig

How safe is that for the DPF, especially given the WK2 EcoDiesel requirement for low ash engine oil to avoid fatally clogging our DPF?

Its perfectly safe. The TCW3 is a low ash mineral oil that will not effect the DPF.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

I see there is now a gde off road tuning option for the wk2s. What does this entail and what gains are seen?

Wonder if this is a delete option tune.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

Personally I wouldn't consider a delete unless going to a bigger turbo, or twins. Honestly, I'd like to run twins WITH the dpf and have a smoke free diesel that just rips. Maybe when warranty is up!

You have posed the question incorrectly. There is no endemic issue with the DPF. The SCR cat on the 2014's has a TSB for replacement if owners encounter P20EE codes, but it's far from an inevitable issue even on OEM firmware. Furthermore, the P20EE issue has nothing to do with the DPF (or regen)--the SCR is an unrelated emissions system.

tl;dr: rest easy.

Re: green diesel engineering tune

For anyone that has had the P249F fault, please contact us via email so that we can make arrangements to get an updated ECU to you with the fix for this.

The "off-road tuning" option is for those people that wish to remove their aftertreatment system from the vehicle. It will work with and with-out the sensors installed and the DEF tank can be removed completely from the vehicle. You can watch your DEF gauge sit at 50% for forever.

We're working on an upgraded single VGT for the EcoDiesels now and have some parts en route. Likely a kit would be available sometime next year after validation has been completed. The biggest downfall to the installation is that removing the turbo requires the engine to be removed from the vehicle. Twins won't fit into the WK's engine bay, there's just no room to do it right and have it packaged correctly and servicable.
