h&s xrt pro...causing problems?

hello all...got a 06 f250..about 2 and 1/2 weeks ago a h&s xrt pro was installed in my truck and i have been running the mild tune (with speed limiter off) since..well a saturday my truck kinda slipped switching gears under hard accel.. wasnt sure what gear it was in..today i was paying attention to what gear i was in and was passing a truck under heavy accel and it seamed to do it again switching from 2nd to 3rd.. so i kept on heading to work.. didnt do it again.. now tonight as i was leaving work i wasnt under a heavy accell and again between 2nd and 3rd again just not as bad.. drived down the road pulled off and changed it to no power tune..which is there version of stock..didnt do it again..i will try it again tomorrow on the way to work but it seemed to shift fine now..like it would as if it was stock.. im pretty sure that the h&s doesnt tune the tranny with the power delivery it doesnt slip while its in gear only when switching gears....so could h&s be causing my tranny to slip between gears?..maybe a sticking silanoid? i wasnt watching my boost but maybe i over boosted? or even worst...tranny goin bad?
what u all think
Jeremy

ps xrt pro has 4 tunes...no power,mild,wild,and hot...wouldnt u think adding more power and not tunning the tranny to the power would hurt?

yes it could be causing it to slip or fail, my advice is remove it and sell it before you're replacing the trans also. Or the tranny could have already been failing before the h&s and the added power just exposed it.

thats kinda of what i was thinking..i returned the truck back to stock and it was smooth under normal driving and hard accel..so i ordered a sct 3015 today and try that...gonna sell the h&s tuner..the truck didnt seam to be slipping while i was in gear just when shifting
