New to the forum here but was curious ramvan. To there is no procedure for the 46RE? Called my mechanic today to have them do this when they perform the flush, he said he thought it couldn't be but would double check with his transmission rebuild buddy.
The band adjustment for the 46RE is the same as the 46RH. They are essentially the same transmission, just that the 46RE is electronically governed.
However the correct front band adjustment does depend on the lever ratio, but for a stock transmission it is going to be 72 in-lbs, then back off 2-7/8 turns. Most band lever ratios are going to be 2.5 or 2.9. Sometimes you will find a 3.2, this is all speaking in terms of a stock transmission. But stick with the 2-7/8 turns and you are good to go
