    Basically bad ring to liner seating. ISX's in that range also have issues with valve stem seals letting go and allowing oil consumption.

    Oil consumption will lead to excessive regens. Burning oil will plug up a dpf in no time and the system is not meant to burn off collected oil. Make sure the engine is not being overfilled. After that I would suggest repairing the oil issue before spending any money on the aftertreatment.
