Regeneration every 100 miles?

I just bought my first 6.4L and I am still fairly new to it but I have a question concerning the regeneration. I am driving approximately 100 round trip a day and see the "cleaning exhaust filter" at least once a day is that normal? I thought they went like 400-500 miles before they have to clean themselves? Please school me on some of this 6.4L stuff. Also I plan on doing a dpf delete and tunes, do I also need to do a intake, studs, egr block off or delete? What do I need to do to run safely with a dpf delete and tunes? Thanks in advance.

Mine regens around 115 to 140 everytime, it really is killing my mileage. I will be deleting when I can afford the Spartan setup. I asked my service manager and he told me they have come back and stated it could regen every 45 miles, regardless that the supplement says 100-668 miles, that would really suck. If mine drops below 100, I will be requesting a new DPF until I delete. When I first got the truck, it would regen around every 320 miles or so and has slowly dropped to where I am. I have 31600 miles on the truck now.

I bought a 2009 6.4, it regened about every 150 miles, didn't realize it shouldn't. I brought it into the dealer for an oil change and found my oil level was up 8 litres of diesel. Long story after but at that thime the found there was a TSB on the truck that reprogammed the computer, after which my regens are way down, once a tank at most.

it "technically" is ok for it to be going into regen that often, but typically they go longer than that. and as far as the dpf delete and tunes goes, thats a great idea. i recommend spartan because it is hands down the best out there. but it is a little pricy. (but worth every penny) generally when people do this the minimum is a dpf delete and tune. i did a full down pipe back exhaust. i think that is your best option. it gives you the best flow and an awesome sound. however its not necessary. another option is to do the DPF/DOC delete pipe. its more than just the DPF but not the full exhaust. depending on what tunes you run, you might need the intake. spartan recommends if you run anything higher than the 210 tune to buy the intake to support the extra fuel. if you run anything lower than that you dont really need it. and its not necessary to get new studs or do anything with the egr's unless you plan on running the spartan 350. but if you do that you'll want to have a built tranny too. so unless you run that exreme of a tune, the stock studs and egr's are fine. hope this helps! let me know if you have any other questions.

Is your trip mostly highway driving? Stop and go?

My '08 regens all the time it seems like, I do drive almost all the time in the city and fairly short trips, so I know that doesnt help at all. My mileage per fuelly is 10.4 avg but normally it is about 8.5-9.5 mpg. I CANT wait to get rid of the doc/dpf but I will be going H&S Mini Maxx
