Safe for stock auto

I have a 2000 powerstroke with a stock auto and 4" turbo back. I have egt, boost, tranny gauges on the way. I was wondering if I would get a 6 position from kt performance with just stock, high idle, whisper, 40 daily and smoke would I encounter tranny issues

any trans can have issues, but just adding that chip probably wont bother it much

Why waste money on 6-position chip if you're going to fill it up with 5 so-so tunes?
And what exactly is a "whisper tune"?
Not trying to sound harsh, just want to make sure you get the most out of your hard earned money.

Just took a look at their website.
If it were me, I'd go with: 1)stock 2) 40HP 3) 65HP 4) 100HP 5) Whisper 6) High Idle
And limit the 100HP to the occasional ricer who thinks a fart-can exhaust makes them go fast. I'm not a huge fan of 'smoke' tunes, but if thats what you wan't trade it in for the 100HP. Keep in mind that for the most part, high HP numbers equates to higher fuel economy and as long as you drive it reasonably your transmission should hold up fine. I believe the typical economy tune actually ups the horsepower by roughly 60.
Whisper tune sounds interesting to me. Post up with how well you like that.

If you have gauges and watch them and don't beat on the truck you won't have any tranny issues you weren't going to have without the chip
