    Question 2010 Camaro Firmer Shifts

    This is my first post so please be gentle. I have a 2010 Camaro with the L99 block and 6 speed auto. I've read many posts on the board concerning getting rid of torque managment, increasing shift pressures, and reducing shift times. I've attempted to make some of these basic changes in small increments, but have been unsuccessful in firming up the shifts. Could someone post a quick how to or at least tell me where to begin and what values are within safe limits.

    Thanks,

    Post My Current Adjustments

    So to help things along here are my current adjustments:

    Desired Shift Times
    D9005,D9035,D9065: Reduce to .3 from 4750 RPM - 6000+ RPM

    Shift Pressure - Pattern B Base Upshift
    D3030,D3033,D3036: Increase 10% on 1-2,2-3,3-4

    Torque Limits
    D9420: Increase 10% across gears 1-4

    Engine RPM Pressure Limiter
    Should I adjust D4004-D4007 ? up 10-15%?

    What else to firm up the shifts at WOT?

    Thanks,

    Where would you like to see improvements?

    If you log shift times, torque, rpm, vss, ETC then you will have a perspective on where you dont like it, and where you can focus your efforts.

    We leave TM on, reduce the base shift times a little, and mainly revise the torque/rpm shift time modifiers.

    I'm interested mainly in WOT. It just seems a little soft compared to my previous vehicle with a 4L60.

    All of my base shift times (D9000,D9030,D9060) are 0.000 I have not modified this from the stock program should these be reduced?

    In addition I will log some runs this afternoon to see where the car stands... Thanks..

    Hi mirage. Yes you are right, for '10 Camaros the base times were set at zero and a lot more weighting is on the torque based times. GM seems to have gone for a simpler strategy on the later years.

    You can try reducing these times (torque/rpm mod table D9005 etc) 10% at a time at the TQ/RPM area you are chasing, and consider increasing your pressure in the ~330ftlb column to match the top column. Do it seperately and then together to get the best feel for what makes the difference.

    Excellent this seems to have made a significant difference. I will continue tweaking in this area, but it is almost exactly where I want it now. Thanks for the help guys!
