Innovative tune problems and questions

I just loaded IDP xtreme race tune and this is the first time I have used a innovative tune that's for performance, Im wondering it this is normal, the truck won't shift under WOT it just smacks off the limiter, it bucks and shakes under 50mph, and instead of down shifting when you hammer it it goes up a gear... But dang she pulls hard. And when I tried a boosted launch it fell all over itself. I was in third so I'm thinking it was because of the torque converter lock up???
I have called Innovative about 30 times no joke, and left a few voicemails, sorry tadd if it gets annoying listening to them all, but I'm just wondering if this is normal? And should I just go go with xtreme street, I'm going back to canned tunes for now because they would shift...

2003 F-250 RC/LB 6.0L with Innovative tunes, K&N FIPK, 3.5 inch down pipe to 6 inch stacks, ARP studs, Autometer gauges, 2006 grill and bumper.

2003 F250 CC/SB 7.3L DP-Tuner, 4" turbo back 5" tip, Autometer gauges, Cowl Hood.

1984 Ranger RC/LB 2.2L Perkins, turned the pump up, turbo off a Mitsubishi 2.3L, and yes it rolls coal, it's not fast, and it's not for sale. 290k miles 43 mpg

It shouldn't be doing that. The tune needs to be tweaked to get it right. Maybe he's not replying because his name is Eric!

Sounds like you may have got a corrupt file causing the tranny to go into limp mode. That happens from time to time. The internet is great but sometimes files just get jumbled. BTW I am running Xrace as a daily driver with zero issues and really like Eric's tunes.

Well since you said Tadd are you sure you aren't running elite's tunes? Or at least calling Elite.

Maybe not corrupt as in totally useless but the shift parameters are out of whack. He can go back in and refine everything. Just be patient with them, they are usually slammed with writing tunes.

X2 Shifting is based on vehicle speed not engine speed.
