HOW MUCH POWER WILL A 6L80E HOLD

We get this question a lot so we did a video to better explain it, Enjoy!

As much as you want, until it doesn't any more. Same as any other transmission.

Thanks for the video Ted!
Curious how much $$$ a TCM HP tune usually runs. Car has been tuned just not sure tranny feels right. Feel free to PM.

Like I said in the video I have to tune both.

I would never sell a trans tune only.

Of course, car has been professionally tuned so was just hoping to concentrate on the transmission though if possible?

I think he means that HE has to tuned both so that the tuning works hand in hand instead of tuning blindly without knowing what the other tuner did. If he tunes only the TCM and something happens, who would you blame? He wants to limit the risk by doing HIS calibration on both units.

Thanks, think I get what he was saying. Understand that the engine has to be tuned to match up with shift points and pressure. Just meant it is running great, was just hoping to ease the hard shifts. To do that if I understood correctly would have to look at engine torque management and what ever else the pros do. Not just the transmission.
Appreciate the reply!
Current tunes not bad so not a big deal

This is exactly what I allude to in the video.

Just because your car was tuned professionally, and it runs good does not mean it was tuned in an OEM fashion that makes the engine and transmission play nice together.

Different tuners have different styles, this does not mean there is anything wrong with it but, if there is it can have a trickle down effect on other things.

And Crankshaft hit the nail on the head.

Ted.

Two part question. Do handheld tuners like the sct x4 tune in a oem fashion.

And also why not to bypass the factory rad cooler. From my understanding the factory gauge reads inside tranny temps ( seems all 6l80's run 180) So I can see the rad cooler not making the the fluid any hotter but cooler. Does it provide enough to keep in series with a second cooler? or seems most guys will bypass the factory and claim cooler temps

The SCT X4 doesn't do any tuning it is simply a transfer device of what I write with the software.

It does do a full image reflash of the said calibration file.

Because heat transfers from liquid to liquid faster than liquid to air and when the converter is making heat the rad can take out the brunt of it quickly then the aux cooler than handle the rest.
