Misfire and Trans Buck TS6 chip

Hey guys, just bought my first powerstroke about a month ago. It was sitting for a while before I bought it and now it is my daily driver. I put the TS6 chip into the truck after I got it home and ever since then i have noticed a problem misfiring and very very rough tranny issues. I have been primarily driving the truck on the +100HP tune but the problem occurs on all settings besides stock. Between 1800-2100 RPM when babying it, it will go to shift and it will almost misfire and give a different knocking noise. It then will buck pretty hard into gear. When you get on it hard and mash it and spool up the turbo it doesnt back fire and the power is definietly there however once up to 70mph on the highway cruising at about 2,000RPM it will begin bucking in and out of Overdrive. I assume it is because of the chip however I didnt know if there was anything I could change or fix to make the chip better work with the truck.

did you clean the contacts on the pcm correctly?

is the chip tuned correctly for your setup. (did they put the right tunes on the chip)

I cleaned the PCM contacts well with a scotch brite pad. The chip is just the standard TS 6 chip from TS Performance. It was never sent out to tony wildman or DP or anyone to "custom tune" I just took the chip out and I am going to test it in my buddies 97 and see how it works
