Exclamation do I have a tranny problem? wife's gonna kill me

OK guys I did it .. I bought another 6.0(2005) ,hoping I didn't make a mistake ... again
I have an SCT and I have the factory tunes from SCT so nothing crazy yet . But I loaded the performance tune into my truck and it was running fine . Then tonight on my way home I was cruising at 2k rpm and it felt like my tranny slipped , so I let off and got back on it and it felt like I was in neutral and it revved out to 3k but I didn't pick up speed ?
So I went the long way around home and did numerous test to see if there was a pattern to this . Did launches, rolled into the power and it didn't do it again .
My question is does this sound normal at all? Is it because I just loaded a new tune? Doesy tranny need to to relearn itself?

Any help with be appreciated !

There is a relearn period. IMO, the canned tunes don't ever let it shift correctly. I know they don't on my truck but they are perfect with stock tuning or my custom tunes.

Think I should put my truck back to stock and see if I have a problem ?

I would. I've never had good shifting with the canned tunes.

This is what I found. I know it says after batteries are disconnected but altering/changing tuning causes it as well.

Torqushift Shift Relearning Strategy
TorqShift Harsh/Slipping Engagements, Upshifts, and/or Downshifts:
If these symptoms are experienced after the batteries have been disconnected, then it is due to the transmission adaptive strategy being cleared from the computer. This may occur when the vehicle is delivered new from the factory as well.
1. Warm the engine and transmission to operating temperature with all accessories off.
2. Idle engine for one minute with engine warm and all accessories off.
3. Idle engine for one minute with A/C on.
Then:
1. While driving, perform three series of upshifts at light, medium and heavy throttle.
2. While stopped, perform three sets of gear engagements (N-R, N-D, D-R, R-D) with the brake pedal firmly depressed and waiting three seconds between each engagement.
Perform these steps once in normal mode and once in tow/haul.

When you go back to stock, it has to relearn also.
