Not worth doing...you could spend $4000 having your 6L bulllet proofed and still be ahead of the game... like...way ahead.

I'd also be interested in who is bulletproofing the 6l. I tow heavy with mine and haven't even been able to find someone who can do any tuning on the diesel version

#1 you need to keep it cool. Deep pan and bigger cooler. Unless you are an idiot and want to do idiot things why are you wanting to "bulletproof" it ? I have 460,000+ plus miles on my stock 4l85e with a lil more power than stock. The 6l90 is an upgrade over it and rated to hold more power.

Is your van tuned for more power?

First thing I did was put a deeper pan with fins and temp gauge on it. My van is over 9000 pounds at all times. I tow 10K a lot, and at times up to 14k for short distances. That is way over what the trans is rated to pull. 6l90 was rated at 525fp of torque. That is why the LGH is detuned to 525fp of torque. I have a mild towing tune on it so it is over what GM rated the trans to hold up to.

Plus the factory programming on the 6l in the diesel leaves a lot to be desired. I have driven 6 liter gas jobs with this trans that have much better programming stock. Seems like they didn't put enough time behind the wheel when the programmed the diesel verson

Mild tune plus heavy towing plus some offloading not an idiot but also don't want problems when I least need them,
Was asking for info on what the other poster put out therein case i want to take advantage of it and if their such a good trans I would like to also know why people are taking the out in exchange for an upgrade 4l
I agree the tuning on these leave something to be desired
