Re-Tuning a chip from DP?

Hi guys i bought a 2001 f250 with a DP chip that was tuned with a 4r100 transmission. The previous owner had an upgraded trans put in(hd4r100) but did not re-tune the chip. Do i have to re-tune the chip to the HD4r100 trans? Im also new to this site so cut me some slack if i get anything wrong.

How does the shifting feel to you. If it feels good, you will be fine.

I like A quick firm shift. Supposed to be better on the transmission that a soft slushy shift. With that said, it's personal preference.

How does the HD4r100 compare driving wise to the stock transmission?

Personal truck (01 350) has 4r100, work truck (01 450) has the HD4r100. The 450 has a firmer shift for sure. I thought the 450's have a slightly different PCM program as far as shifting goes when equipped with an auto. I'm not to sure if the firmer shift is PCM or tranny related. Oh forgot that boss had a billet torque convertor put in when it was rebuilt so maybe that has a little to do with it. I definitely prefer the 450's shift over my 350's shift. Just my .02

I was curious how the 4r100 performs. If my stocker ever gives up the ghost, I'm interested in this one for the price. I don't beat my truck up at all. Just occasional spirited driving and towing 3 days a week. I don't wanna dump big $$$ into a tranny that I won't take FULL advantage of.

In my opinion there is no comparison the HD is the way to go if your towing or just giving your truck a hard time. I mean lots of hill climbs etc.My 4R100HD shifts are well spaced out and firm and trans temp are at 190F when towing.
