6.7 vs 6.4 Regen/DPF Cleaning process?

What differs between the 2 in the Regen process i am curious.. Because what i am getting at here is the 6.7 left factory stock is a dependable truck, No need for a DPF delete.. and the 6.4 left stock can be a nightmare, stemming from constant regen/making oil.. DPF delete only solution. How was the regen process improved in the 6.7?

uses 1 side to inject fuel and is able to do a passive regen if worked hard enough. I think egr is smaller amount because use def so not as big problem

The 6.7 uses urea/DEF fluid versus the 6.4 that uses diesel as the catalyst to superheat the soot in the DPF filter. There's no extra diesel used in the regen on a 6.7. Making oil in a 6.4 happens if you don't let the regen cycle complete or idle in park prior to shutting the engine off.

The 6.7 and 6.4 both regen the same way. They both inject diesel on the exhaust stroke. The 6.4's oil gets diluted with diesel during the process, I don't think the 6.7 does this, at least mine didn't. The urea is to reduce NOx and has nothing to do with the dpf or regens. I do think the 6.7 is more reliable stock than a 6.4, but they both benefit from deletes.

They both use diesel for regens. The 6.7 uses urea for its SCR (selective catalyst reduction?), therefore the 6.7 has a much smaller EGR since the DEF is taking care of part of the emissions crap.

Dodges got DPF since 2007.5, thats why the good old 5.9 went away.

And in 13 I believe they added the DEF/SCR system.

One of the reason, is that the 6.7L is built of CGI instead of the tradition cast iron . With CGI they have better tolerances, which reduced the blow by that occurred on the 6.4L engines. Tighter tolerances, less blow by = less chance of diluting the oil. Couple that with only injecting the fuel for regen in 4 cyclinders instead of 8 cylinders and they have had much less problems with oil dilution.

Add in the smaller EGR and better technology on the regen process and it is working much better and giving us better fuel mileage.
