Tranny shifts fine seems to slip when cruising

Just like it says it shifts just fine into all gears but when i get cruising in od it seems to slip. I posted this before but its getting worse. The rpms dont drop much if at all i really cant tell. It is definately noticable though like a several shakes and then it quits for a while and comes back. I am leaning toward tourqe converter slipping but i am no expert. Is someone could help or tell me how to fix the slipping it would be great. Thanks

have you turned your line pressure up for the shift firmness? mine was doing the same thing. i have the edge evo as well. after messing with the shift firmness and shift rpm it stoped doing it. may be the same in your case, maybe not...

i have all my shift firmness to the max. The 3rd-4th shift rpm is the only one i changed, i believe its set about 150-200rpm above what ever the base is that comes up. so like 3350-3500... you will just have to mess with it till it stops slipping/searching between gears.
oh p.s mine only did it when i was floored.
