Frequent Regens

Hey guys,

I recently installed an Edge Racing Evolution Tuner in my 09' 6.4 and it seems like I am going into regen every 80-100 miles. Is this normal or do I have it set too high? Currently I am running it on 4 (extreme). I love the power it puts down as well as the torque, but I dont want to damage anything. The truck is still a newbie with 37k miles on it. It also has an AirRaid intake to it. Please advise me on how normal this is or if there is a problem. The truck runs perfectly and I have no problems with it at all. Just making sure nothing can go wrong..

Thank you

I would think that is probably going to happen if you haven't deleted the dpf & are running that tune.

Other than gaining power you probably won't see any improvement in mileage until you delete the dpf.

thanks guys. So would you recommend that use a different tune setting until I delete the DPF? Im not wanting to do that until around 60k. Is keeping it at 4 going to be bad on the truck without the dpf delete?

Actually I guess I wouldn't run above level 1 with the dpf installed just to be on the safe side but that is just my opinion. The thing with the higher levels is they will cause the regen to happen more often which in turn is putting more stuff into the dpf in a shorter period of time so you could possibly run into issues with the higher tunes. Also more regens will mean more diesel entering your crankcase through regen cycles. Once the dpf is gone you should be fine to run on whatever tune you want. I had an edge evo for quite a while and it worked great for me but I had the dpf removed the whole time.
