Hard shifting with TS chip

I'm new to posting on this forum but I have a TS 6 position chip in my truck. When I'm driving around in stock the tranny shifts great. In 70 hp the shift are firmer. Then in 100 and 140 it shifts like garbage. 1-2 slams into gear then 2-3 bucks and then slams into gear and 3-4 is the same as 1-2. Is my tranny going or is it the tuning on the chip? Thanks for the help.
My truck is a 2001 f250 with 120,000 miles.

2001 f250 cc sb, Zf6 swap with zoom 650 horsepower clutch, Ts six position chip, Banks 4" turbo back exhaust, Ats ported compressor housing, riffraff high flow compressor wheel, riffraff boost fooler, 10 inch lift on 40 inch procomps xtreme terrains, RiffRaff FRx, Airraid cold air intake, boost and egt gauges.

Your "TS Chip" is the Hardware. Whos Software in in there? Where did it come from?

Sounds like you have poorly written tunes maybe...

Theres the problem, its just stock canned tunes! Get some custom tunes on that 6 pos and you will be alot happier with your truck.

I know that I can buy the beans chip, but do I have any other option. Could I send my chip out to have custom tunes put on it?

You can, however if you have a mostly stock truck you don't have to spend to have them tailored to your engine. Stock tunes are fine for Stock trucks. What you have are really Generic tunes that are just poorly written (you get what you pay for...) So, you can buy a programmed TS chip cheaply for like $200 but you paid for very little expertize and got just that in the software.

Many people will program your chip and will have, expertly written, stock tunes that will work Much better.

Tony Wildman will, I think Beans will, maybe Swamps (not sure)

PHP and DP Tuner won't anymore as I understand it, but you have plenty of other choices. As the 7.3 gets older, and less customers out-there to be purchasing this stuff, the pricing seems to be coming down. I mean, the development has been Long Since paid for.

NONE of those choices are bad, who could accurately say "best" for you? Or for anyone

BEST - Tires-Battery-Oil-Shocks - What's the "best"? The only responses you'd be getting is what other people ended-up going with (they made the Best Choice - didn't they?)

Go to their websites, compare prices and the different programming choices they offer, decide what you'd like to have & spend for it. Again, there Are no Bad choices from those guys...
