6L90 Level 2.5, 4-5-6 CLUTCH KIT:
8 Borg Warner® Clutches
7 Lindered Steel Plates
1 Apply Plate
1 Backing Plate
1 Snap Ring
2 Bonded Pistons
CDT456L2.5/90-P offers 17% more clutch apply area than stock. Lindered is a chemical and heat treatment process that hardens the steel, which results in less wear.
One piece 300M steel forging is heat-treated and shot-peened for maximum durability. This shaft doubles oil flow to the clutch pack for improved resistance to heat and longer clutch life. It is designed for use with the OE dampener to minimize risk of chirp/squawk. The hub is designed for OE steels and clutches.
PLEASE NOTE: GM has a transmission that has the same outside dimensions as a 6L90 but uses one less clutch in all the clutch housings compared to a true 6L90. We call this transmission a 6L90LCC (less clutch capacity). Please refer to "Stock Clutch Capacity Chart" and "Length of Main Case Chart" on the "Transmission Specs" tab below to determine if you have a 6L90 or 6L90LCC. When ordering this part, please indicate in the Notes textbox above that you have a 6L90LCC.
Upgraded Parts If you have an early pump cover (stator) that does not utilize anti-rotational tabs on the sealing rings or an early 1-2-3-4/3-5-R clutch housing that does not have the matrix stamp you will need to install a factory upgraded pump cover and clutch housing.
Transmission Tuning Please understand that proper tuning of the TCM and ECM are mandatory. All 6L80/90’s are torque base shifted units. The torque signal is calculated thru the ECM. Therefore, transmission performance & longevity are directly dependent on the delivered torque signal that’s calculated in the ECM. If this is not done properly, you will experience premature transmission failure. We also do not recommend maxing out pressures or deleting torque management completely because it will cause seal failure and/or hard part breakage.
Flushing Cooler & Lines We cannot stress enough the importance of flushing the transmission cooler(s) and lines, even if they are new. We recommend using a Hot Flush Machine Flush Machine or something comparable.
Auxiliary Cooler You need to install a stacked plate auxiliary transmission cooler (not a tube & fin style cooler) rated for 25,000 GVW. The ideal operating temperature for this transmission is 180°or less. These transmissions have a tendency to run very hot – the cooler will lower operating temperature and recovery time which in turn will extend the life of your transmission.
