Tony Wildman blues

I got a TW chip from raul not too long ago. Everything was real good with it, but lately it has been acting up. I noticed it getting on the highway, it would shift into OD and the truck would fall flat on its face, then pick back up after a few seconds. But lately the shifting has been getting worse, the power is no longer there, you are lucky to get the truck out of its own way on the street tune...

Anyone got any ideas? Am I one of the .0001% of people that actually have a problem with the chip?

Chip could have worked its way off of the little computer board deal?

Sam, Southern7.3, could be right it could have wiggled loose but if you eliminate it completely you scratch that possibility out.

Stock setting on my chip seems almost de-tuned. its tonys and yes- when i romp it it locks the converter hard in 4th. basically you need more air fuel and oil from the sounds of it. other chips will let your converter spin like hell until it decides to shift keeping your engine from lugging like your saying.
