Question Carbon Build Up???

Before I go and tear some guys a new one on another forum for call BS on me, talk to me about carbon build up guys? What causes it? Wouldn't I have to worry more about it if I had the DPF on there since the DPF is acting like a cork and catching all the soot?

Thanks John.....so you tell you me bud, based on what that said about oil and motors being over fueled, wouldn't you think carbon would be more of a problem with trucks that still have the DPF and regen mode because of the extra fuel that is being used?

I would think so but if the motor runs at a hot temp from higher speeds or towing it really shouldnt matter. the hotter temps will "burn" off the carbon regardless if you have a dpf or not. If you baby it or drive like a grandma putting around everywhere it will build up carbon with or without a dpf.
