What channels to log for a 6L90E? Concerned bout binding.

Is there a list of channels & graph types to log so I can get to tuning my 6L90E?

I have a built 6L90E by Tim King, billet planetary, and upgraded clutches, and a 3100 PTC converter.

It's fresh build and I'm concerned about binding, and softening some the 1-2 shift, it comes on really harsh under low throttle in auto mode.  What would I modify to change this?

I've done the reset, preset, fast adapts and relearn proceedure.  it failed the first time, completed the second time.

I'm also curious to see how I would notice binding, I hear these build transmissions can be prone to binding.  What do I log for that and what type of graph to a make for it?


Thank you for any input on this.
