Superchips 1705 shifting

I recently purchased a 2001 PSD and in stock form it shifts fine. It came with a superchips programmer so I loaded one of the programs and it makes the truck shift funny. It acts like it needs to relearn shifting. Does anyone know if this is true? I had a dp tuner on my other truck(will have another one soon) and it shifted fine. I have tried all the programs and didnt really see a difference. Even under light throttle on the 1705 it takes forever for the truck to shift. Do I just need to drive it around for awhile and let it relearn the shift pattern?

thanks

My 01 had a superchip on it when I got it as well. It was HORRIBLE; my truck would skip 3rd sometimes and ride first and second to the nuts. Once I put something else on, it was fine. Plus with the superchip temps were about 20-30 higher.

Like I said all trucks are different. Superchip is a good chip for what it is.

Superchips are famous for their poor transmission tuning. Some trucks do fine with them, others don't. I use a lot of them, and I haven't had much of a problem. Although I did replace a few transmissions on some higher mileage trucks. I think they were on their last legs anyway. I haven't had any tranny problems since. Just look at my signature. I have a gaggle of trucks running them.

Just don't make the same mistake as I did... Don't get an Edge... go with custom tunes. I'm kicking myself daily.

ya I wont be doing that....I really liked the dp tuner I had on my other truck but I am considering other options as well. I just wish other people offered the fob style of adjusting tunes and not just the knob.

I am not sure all I know is when i had my tunned with Superchips it would act up. I would flash back to stock and the truck was fine, then I put the Edge chip on and it remained fine.
