New 6.4 owner! Regen Problems?

Help! Just traded my 05 6.0 for a 08 6.4 dually and the regen has not stopped. The truck sat for awhile and it was straight pipe 4" with S&B and Edge programmer. I test drove it and as soon as it warmed up regen came on. I drove it 30 miles home next day and same thing. Drove it 32 miles next night to work and it's still goes into regen after it warms up. Sensor bad? Not a long enough drive? PCM jacked? No check engine lights and it runs fine except for the loss of power and with no DPF it smokes like a train at stop signs and lights. Embarrassing to say the least! 94,000 miles. Did I get ripped?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks fellow Powerstroker's!!

So the DPF was removed but the truck still goes into Regen? I'm a new diesel owner and still learning about these trucks, but if I understand correctly it should have been reprogrammed to turn the Regen off because there is no DPF. Sounds like a programmer problem...?

The edge programmer is not very good for DPF off applications. I would suggest getting a different programmer of your choice (Spartan, SCT, H&S) and reprogramming the truck. If you do this all your problems should go away.

Cool regen

i also just bought a 2008 f350 dually. the regen was coming on about every 300 miles and would stay on sometimes for 50 miles at 75 mph. then my check engine light came on. i took it to ford and they said my egt sensor was bad. after they replaced it i haven't seen the regen. i went back for some other issues and asked about the regen. they are telling me that ford put a new program in my truck so you don't know when it is doing it. they said they did this because they where getting to many complaint's about it. Has anyone else heard of ford doing this. the dealership told me not to worry about it, just keep driving it until the check engine light comes on. I'm not liking the service i'm getting at this place.

So, if I'm understanding correctly, you have a straight pipe exhaust with no dpf or cat, and it goes into regen? That should not be happening, and it should not be just staying in regen all of the time. That's what happened originally when people just hacked off the DPF and hoped for the best. The tuner must be set to turn the Regen function off or you're in for a world of problems. It may now be stuck in regen.

I put a 5in exhaust with dpf delete on mine and it did the same thing but i didn't have a tuner so I just put the stock dpf back on until I can afford a tuner.. I wish they would make something to just cut out the regen so I could run my exhaust until I get my tuner
