Constant Regen mode Help!!

One of my friends on another forum gutted his DPF and Cat drove it for about 200 miles or so and now it is stuck in constant REGEN mode. Any one have any ideas I know 6.4 kid did it before he got TBoned how did it work out?

funny little side bit of programming I have heard some OEMS are putting in its a timed regen based on fuel usage the ecm figures after x amount of gallons used the dpf is beginning to plug and requires a regen even if the sensor readings say otherwise.I know for a fact the ISB cummins used in the dodges does this

Now once it trys to regen it will stay there until it sees the proper readings from each of the 3 temp sensors .. but with no restriction in the exhaust to hold the heat near the sensors this temp will NEVER be achieved .

If your friend trashed the factory dpf to gut it out tell him to dig deep to buy new parts I know for the big trucks its about $10,000 for the complete setup

if he put in a delete pipe he may want to stuff it back as it was
