    its actually not as bad as you might imagine.

    As said, the engine will rev on its own, i think it holds around 2-2500 first, and then increases to 3500, and will stay like that for a while, i think its a bit longer than the 5 minutes, but that could vary depending on the saturation level maybe.

    Be warned though, the exhaust gasses will be very very hot!!

    Mine has never smoked during a re-gen, but if its gonna smoke anywhere, I would think it would come from the exhaust

    Also thinking of biting this bullet. Can you do a regen on a tarmac drive or is it advisable to drive somewhere suitable first?
