I ran through the linked instructions with both trucks in my sig and it seems to work well. Thanks clinebarger!
My stock ramp table was a bit different so I just applied 150%+10psi to all columns 2-250 rpm.
You can use the HP fluid and there is a GM bulletin that specifies the HP fluid replace the Dexron 6 in vehicles with shudder and other issues. I have already did this to around 30 GM SUV/Pickups ranging from 2015 thru 2018.
You are probably correct as I have not had to check the system in awhile....but the procedure was working. I'm curious now and am going to check. Good catchDidn't GM back off on that recommendation & now wants a thorough fluid exchange using Dexron VI on MYC-6L80E & MYD-6L90E?? Per Bulletin......#20-NA-142: Shudder/Surging While Driving - Revised Sep 13, 2021???
That's a '14 & up Pressure Ramp that I used as an example, But the same theory holds.
I modified a 2013 GMC Sierra TCC Pressure Ramp like I normally would.....The stock table looks identical to yours so it's safe to assume the calibration is pretty similar.
*Increased the 2 rpm & up by 50% (Multiplied by 1.50)
*Increased from 2 rpm to 200 rpm by 10 psi
*Smoothed the ramp in the 3D graph
In theory.....Smoothing the Ramp will decrease TCC Regulator Valve & Pressure Regulator "Shuttle". Pressure Regulator Valve wear is quite common on 6LxxE units so I believe any stabilization of pressure will only help.

I have a programmer Diablo sport trinity2 platinum. Can that be done with this or is this something else different ? I have a 2017 GMC Sierra 5.3 with the 8l90e. I haven’t noticed any shutter yet. I have 86k on my truck with a 7 inch lift and 35’s. I just bought 12 quarts of the blue label Mobil one. I was gonna do a tranny flush using this and then pump out the remaining fluid and fill with blue labe Mobil one. I understand why your talking about as it’s a band aid. It seems to me unless you replace the torque converter with say a circle D billet one the gm is gonna fail at some point reguardless the question is how long will it take and last.Dexron VI is the best fluid for the 6L80E unit, But NO fluid will save the Torque Converter Clutch from wearing out, I highly recommend having it tuned to eliminate the "Constant TCC Slip", While it's only a 10-20 rpm slip differential.....It creates a ton of heat at the Converter Clutch Lining, This breaks down the fluid as well.
Sure.....Changing the fluid often might prolong the inevitable, But will not stop it.
I've also tuned 8L90E units in a similar manner, It eliminates TCC "Bobble" even with Dexron VI. Leads me to believe that Dexron HP is a mere band-aid too get the unit through warranty, Unfortunately 8L90E Controllers have to be sent off to be Unlocked manually....Runs around a Grand to even access the controller(TCM) for tuning.
If you want to purchase HP-Tuners.....I can walk you through modifying the calibration. It will take @$500 to buy the Dongle & License a '17 5.3L/6L80E Silverado & you will need a Windows 10 Laptop.
