Shifting Issue with ts 6pos on automatic 7.3 *skips 4th gear*

So I had ts performance retune my chip to run on my 2001 automatic 7.3, and now I went ahead and installed it and the truck skips 4th gear completely...

With the chip on ANY tune, it will shift 1,2,3,and slam into 5th every time.

I took the chip out for the time being and the truck is back to driving perfectly fine, I am wondering if anyone has had any similar issues and what could possibly be wrong?

I've called ts performance and triple checked the info I gave them and according to them everything is supposed to be perfect.

Any ideas??

Thanks - Nate

You don't have 5 gears. So it is slamming into 4th locked.

^ yup
Have it retuned by one of many tuners listed in any of the " who tunes to run " threads. Will probably fix it right up. If you want the tranny to last , throw a valve body in it along with some different tuning and all the world should be right

It shifts 1 , 2 , 3 , TC locking feels like a shift , 4th I believe , most def a 4 speed though.
It feels like a shift , completely understandable as to thinking it has 5.
I've never run TS canned tunes , I've never read any stellar reports on them either.
Try Gearhead or Powerstruck , great customer service , good tuning , nice shifting.
