Looney fuel tune and stock transmission

Just wondering if Vivian's MPG looney is safe for a stock 05 trans. I have an SCT and would like a decent power upgrade but not if it starts ripping on the clutches every time I want to "get on it" a little. Any suggestions would be great. My SCT only has canned tunes on it now.

Ripping the clutches out is from not firming up the shifts when power is applied. You know, like an Edge programmer. While you should pose this question to the tune writer for the most thorough answer, I have had no transmission issues using hot tunes.

Thanks Karls03- I've never had a tune written for my truck. I will ask Vivian to firm my shifts up a bit when she writes my tune. I guess I was wondering if anyone out there with this tune had any transmission issues whether good or bad.
