# Thread: Transmission tuning help - 8L90e

1. I just invested in the tuning schools gm transmission book. It will be here in 2 days or so.
There is just too many ways to mess things up with an unlocked TCM.  Reply With Quote

2. educational material is always good. let us know what you figure out  Reply With Quote

3. So i can't figure out how to properly calculate the Low adjust value.
Here are the parameters from the 2015.5 Yukon Denali:

The final drive ratio is 3.23:1 (Differential gear ratio)
The transfer case ratio is 2.69:1
1st gear is 4.56:1
6th gear is 1:1
8th gear is 0.65:1

The calculated Low Adjust Value is shown to be 0.73
Can someone explain to me how it got calculated?  Reply With Quote

4. I thought the transfer case was 2.42
If that is the case then its you are going at 73% as fast in 4wd low as you would in drive (no 4wd lo)  Reply With Quote

5. New to the forum, I have the same setup as the OP (Jeep with L86 and 8L90). Also looking to get into the transmission and understand what all this means.

I?m not sure what the Yukon transfer case ratio is, but I believe the correct way to turn it into a percentage is to divide 1 by the ratio. So, a 2.42 would be .41 and a 2.69 would be .37. Neither of which get us to .73. That would be a transfer case ratio of 1.37 to 1 which I doubt anyone would make.

6. I’m finding a 2.69 and 2.42 low ratios. But apparently there is a different ratio of you got the tow package or not...  Reply With Quote

8. I came up with the same calculations as conquistador (forum user). If anything the Low Adjust value should be 1/(transfer case gear ratio).  Reply With Quote

9. Ok so this is still an open and unresolved thread. Can someone please explain to us how to get to the correct Low Adjust Value?
Thank you!  Reply With Quote
