DURAMAX RELATED QUESTIONS
Do I really need TCM tuning?
Our TCM tune addresses shift points, torque management and wide open throttle (WOT) RPM limits imposed by the TCM. The stock TCM tuning WOT shift point is at 3250 RPM because the stock power curve falls off before then.
The power band in the 4th-5th setting of our DSP-5 tune continues past that; By raising the part throttle and WOT shift points to accommodate the increase power band curve, it not only improves the ability to handle the power, protects the transmission and prevents slipping, but also increases the performance of the vehicle because it revs out higher and will improve the acceleration.
We also suggest the TransGo JR shift kit if you are running an Allison 6.
I’m swapping the OEM electronic transfer to a manual shift case; Will that be a problem with either the DSP-5 or the TCM?
The conversion to manual case is not an issue and as long as you are using the factory style t-case the low range ratio should be the same as stock. (Although we can alter that ratio if another style case is used. If you want it to work correctly you will have to be sure to wire in the 4wd low activation sensor/switch to the TCM so that it will know when the truck has been shifted to low range or else it will put the trans in limp mode.
Do you support LGH?
The LGH is a detuned version of the LML engine and was offered in two configurations:
- LGH/Allison (cab and chassis trucks and fleet vehicles) These very closely resemble the LML Truck configuration and we do support these drivetrains in conversions.
- LGH/6l90 (vans, cutaways, busses) WE DO NOT SUPPORT THIS CONFIGURATION!!!
Do you offer a standalone solution for an LGH with a 6L90E behind it?
At this time we do not offer an LGH/6L90E standalone solution. We do offer an LML Engine only and an LML \ Allison combination.
We have done several 4l80 and a few 6l90 behind earlier motors like LBZ and LMM. From these experiences we can confidently say that the trans is a significant limitation in the drivetrain capability. Due to the much lower torque capacity of these transmissions the engines must be significantly detuned from the factory truck calibration. Similarly, the operating systems for Vans/Cutaways/Ambulances/Bus’, are all specific to the configuration, making it more difficult.
We are currently testing a conversion harness that allows you to couple an LGH to an Allison with some modifications to the engine and should have results on this in the next month or so.
