Carbon/sludge build up?

I have e99 psd and am wondering about carbon/sludge build up in the intake. I also have a vw 2.0t that recently needed $1700 worth of work(as quoted by the dealership) due to excessive carbon/sludge build up inside the head just on top of the valves. I did the cleaning myself on the vw and there was a ton of gunk inside. Had to scrape/vacuum it out and it took a couple days to complete. The service guy at vw told me that any turbo engine has this problem. The vw woke up considerably since cleaning it. I was curious if these trucks have the same issue? I'm not 100% fluent on how the intake system looks on a diesel but I'm wondering if it might be something to look into. Thanks

"I have e99 psd and am wondering about carbon/sludge build up in the intake." If your talking about that black tube leading to the turbo it's from the CCV and factory air cleaner box.
