Default difference in 4GR-FSE - '05-'10 vs '11>

What is the difference within the years of the 4GR-FSE?
From reading up on all the carbon issues, is it more apparent on the earlier 05-10 models? 11> changed to 0w20 oil and it seems the TSB no longer applies (well at least not to mine when I checked).

Anyone getting carbon problems on 11> models?

It's a hit or miss with these. Some get it other will never. My wife has the 08 250 we bought brand new 7yrs 113,000 miles later not one issue with it. We use 5w30 oil but only put Shells 93. Hoping to stay that way since there only 2yrs left on the Carbon warranty if it does happen.
