I know there is a replacement for the 2.0 TDI's, but haven't found anything here or a google search for the v6's.

I was thinking of an extra way to protect the HPFP.

Cheers.

Micron level depends greatly on the beta ratio of the filter when comparing performance. The beta ratio is the efficiency of the filter. Example a nominal filter will have a beta ratio of 2 at a given particulate size. This means that it will only trap half of the particles above the micron rating. The higher the beta ratio, the higher percentage you will trap, but the pressure drop and price usually also go up. I can show you the calculations if you'd like.

If a single pass, you'd want a higher ratio. If on a kidney loop you can afford a lower ratio since you'll have multiple passes to filter it out.

So a higher micro level may not be a better filter. Need more info

More general knowledge. I came across some posts this morning regarding micro replacement filters for the ALH TDIs, which had me thinking about T-regs.
