    Default DPF filling up too quick?

    Just one thing i've found out, guys.

    Got my Vec at the end of last year (1.9cdti 150 estate, with DPF). A few weeks later i noticed it regen'ing now and then. Around 4 months ago, the car broke down with blocked DPF. Had it removed and replaced with a straight piece of pipe, then had the regen software removed from the ecu.
    In the last few weeks, the car has been smoking more and more. After making up a boost test kit, i found the boost was leaking out around the butterfly valves in the inlet (losing air meant that lots of fuel was exiting the engine as soot). I'd checked the valves operated ok not long after buying the car, but never thought about the boost leaking out. It seems to leak out from low revs, but once the turbo is really going, there seems to be enough air going into the engine to burn the fuel (although there still is a massive amount of air leaking out)
    If i hadn't removed my DPF i'd still be scratching my head and wondering why the DPF was filling so quickly, no doubt someone would have suggested a new DPF.

    So, if anyone is experiencing DPF's filling up and regen'ing too often, check for boost leaks!

    Looking at your profile you probably have the older manifold, unless you have had it changed.

    The oldermanifolds allowed the swirl flaps to move along their axis as well as rotate.

    I'm pretty sure it's on it's first manifold. The car was registered in late December 2006. It's done 74,000 miles, so it's had a fair bit of use. The top of the flaps have the hole in them (as opposed to the newer style tops)
