Sudden chugging???

Ok guys, I just recently noticed some kind of a loss of power for just a split second while driving at a constant speed. Happens on the highway when I am usually driving about 65-70 mph. Truck feels like it just loses power for a second and then back to normal. I don't want to spread any bad rumors or anything like that, but I only started to notice it after I got my tunes from DJ's. I am going to try a different tune as I have only had it on the street tune so far. But any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated...thanks guys...

try reloading the tunes on the xcal2 and then reload it into the truck...maybe the file got messed up somehow...if that doesent work call vivian and talk to her about it and you'll prob get a new tune if that is the cause...

mine seems to have this problem when trying to go to the passing gear, either in cruise or manually puching the go pedal, Marc told me to get the truck flashed for it, said the torque converter is trying to lock up for some reason when passing gear is trying to work....supoosedly is a Ford bulletin out for it, just have not been it for it yet...let us know how it goes!
