Gm 10 Speed Transmission

Posted on  by admin

HP Tuners is proud to release limited tuning support for the T87A equipped 2017 GM 10-Speed transmissions in VCM Suite 3.5 beta.

Jun 27, 2019 The 10-speed transmission could contain a maximum of nine individual solenoids — RPO dependent — installed in various bore locations on the lower control valve body assembly and internal transmission case. Eight of the nine solenoid valves are used to control pressure regulation and direction of transmission fluid. The SuperMatic™ 10L90-E 10-speed automatic transmission offers a technologically advanced balance of performance and efficiency when matched with Chevrolet Performance’s Gen V Crate Engines, including the LT1, LT4, and LT5.


This release provides the first and only 10-Speed transmission tuning solution for 2017 GM Vehicles.
Due to added complexity, the T87A TCM for the GM 10-speed needs to be individually licensed for 4 GM credits for tuning.1
Please note, due to increased security, ALL T87A TCMs need to be unlocked via the GM Unlock service before they can be tuned. More information on this new process can be found below:
HP Tuners is proud to release a TCM Unlock service that enables tuning on 2017 T87A TCMs. The cost for the service is $200 and can be purchased through the Order Page near the bottom of the page.
Once ordered, please ship your TCM to the address listed on the orders page.
When you send in the TCM, you MUST include the following:

1. Customer Name
2. Customer Address
3. Customer Contact Information (E-mail/Phone)
4. TCM Unlock Service Order #
5. Vehicle Identification Number
6. Preferred shipping method2

If the information above is not provided with the TCM, it may delay the TCM Unlock process while the missing information is acquired.

NOTE: The TCM you send in should already be programmed prior to the unlock service. If you choose to send in a spare TCM, you are responsible for providing us accurate vehicle information at the time you place your order and for later having the TCM programmed via a J2534 tool or OEM Dealer Diagnostic tool to your vehicle.

After the TCM arrives at HP Tuners, an HP Tuners engineer will unlock the TCM and enable your HP Tuners software so that the TCM can then be licensed, edited, and flashed with HP Tuners software! This is a one-time unlock that will not affect other operations of the TCM. The factory tools will still work for service and HP Tuners will then work for tuning!Gm 10 Speed Transmission
We will unlock TCMs as fast as we can, but please allow 1 - 3 business days (plus the time to ship the TCM) per TCM that you send in for the unlock process to finish. (i.e. 2 PCMs = 2-6 business days.)
Once you receive the TCM back from unlock, re-install the TCM back into the vehicle and then you may tune the TCM with HP Tuners by licensing the TCM for 4 credits. If need to purchase one of our tuning interfaces, the GM Pro VCM Suite is $649, it comes with the interface, VCM Suite, 8 GM Credits and can also be ordered here: Order Page
Please email Sales if you have any further questions.

The all-new Allison 10-speed 10L1000 automatic transmission (RPO MGM, MGU) available on 2020 Silverado HD and Sierra HD models equipped with the 6.6L Duramax diesel engine combines enhanced performance, fuel economy, and operational flexibility with an industry-leading reputation for reliability. Designed for high-performance and low-maintenance, the new 10-speed transmission (Fig. 14) — the first-ever offered in the heavy-duty pickup segment — has been tested and validated in partnership with Allison Transmission and, combined with the proven Duramax 6.6L diesel engine, offers a powertrain combination that provides superior power delivery and productivity.

The Duramax/Allison powertrain standard axle ratio has been reduced to 3.42:1, which lowers engine speed, enhances refinement and increases efficiency. The powertrain combination is available on 2WD or 4WD models.

Transmission Architecture

The transmission has 10 speed ratios that are generated using four simple planetary gear sets, two brake clutches, and four rotating clutches. The on-axis transmission architecture uses a squashed torque converter, an off-axis pump and four close-coupled gear sets. The four rotating clutches are located forward of the gear sets to minimize the length of oil feeds that provide for enhanced shift response. There are different variants of the transmission, all based on torque capacity. Architecture is common between the variants, and component differences are primarily related to size.

The transmission architecture features a case with an integral bell housing for enhanced powertrain stiffness. (Fig. 15) A unique pump drive design allows for off-axis packaging very low in the transmission. The pump is a variable vane type, which effectively allows for two pumps in the packaging size of one. This design and packaging strategy provides for ideal oil routing to the controls system with the pump located in the valve body itself.

Fig. 15

The 4-element torque converter contains a pump, a turbine, a pressure plate splined to the turbine, and a stator assembly. (Fig. 16) The torque converter acts as a fluid coupling to smoothly transmit power from the engine to the transmission. It also hydraulically provides additional torque multiplication when required. The pressure plate, when applied, provides a mechanical direct drive coupling of the engine to the transmission.

Fig. 16

The hydraulic system primarily consists of an off-axis gear-driven variable vane-type pump next to the valve body, and two control valve body assemblies. The pump maintains the working pressures needed to stroke the clutch pistons that apply or release the friction components, which consist of six multiple disc clutches. The multiple disc clutches deliver 11 different gear ratios, 10 forward and one reverse, through the gear sets.

Transmission Control Solenoid Valves

Gm 10 Speed Transmission Specs

The Transmission Control Module (TCM), which is externally mounted, uses three speed sensor signals for enhanced shift response and accuracy .The TCM receives and monitors various electronic sensor inputs and uses this information to shift the transmission at the optimum time.

The 10-speed transmission could contain a maximum of nine individual solenoids — RPO dependent — installed in various bore locations on the lower control valve body assembly and internal transmission case. Eight of the nine solenoid valves are used to control pressure regulation and direction of transmission fluid. The one on/off solenoid valve is only used to direct transmission fluid. The normal operating current range for these solenoid valves is between 0–1.2 amps. If the TCM detects an electrical circuit malfunction or excessive current flow, the TCM will turn off the high-side driver to that solenoid and set a DTC.

Transmission control solenoid valves 1–8 are pressure regulating valves. Each solenoid valve is tested after assembly to determine the output fluid pressure at certain electrical values, applied to the coil winding, and is referred to as solenoid current/pressure data points. The current versus pressure data points are saved and assigned a file number, which is marked on the solenoid valve housing end or on the valve body itself. The solenoid performance data file is programmed and stored in the vehicle’s TCM as well as stored on the Techline Information System (TIS) website. Replacing any of the following components require the TCM to be programmed with either the new or existing solenoid valve performance data, depending on what component is replaced.

  • Transmission assembly – program the TCM with the new data file stored on the TIS web site for all pressure regulating solenoid valves.
  • Lower control valve body assembly with solenoid valves – program the TCM with the new data file stored on the TIS web site for all pressure regulating solenoid valves.
  • Transmission Control Module – program the TCM with the existing data file stored on the TIS web site for all pressure regulating solenoid valves.
  • One or more solenoids – program the TCM with the new data file stored on the TIS web site for all pressure regulating solenoid valves that were replaced.

Power Take-Off

The available all-new factory-integrated, engine-driven Power Take-Off (PTO) eliminates the need for an aftermarket unit. Exclusively offered with the 10-speed transmission (RPO MGU) on select diesel models, it’s the first fully integrated PTO system in the HD truck segment, with the PTO’s drive gear operated via chain to direct engine power. (Fig. 17) And because it is engine-driven rather than turbine-driven, the PTO can be used while the vehicle is idling. A button inside the cab enables the PTO, and a mode selector allows adjustment of load and torque output.
