are you saying that you changed the gear in the rear end

or you just made the change on the programer

I had the exact same problem with mine (Gryphon CS). Let me try and guess what you did:
you choose a level - then when it asks if you want to customize it - you say yes, right? because you need to put in the number for the new gear ratio or tire sizes or whatever...

If you did this and skipped through the other settings and just accepted the default - when in WOT (wide open throttle) - and the truck wants to upshift - the whole thing shudders and sputters. The best explanation I can put to it is it looks like your just starting to learn how to drive a stick shift and haven't gotten the hang of clutch and gas.

If you want to customize - your going to need to know every setting for every item on the list. there's some problem with edge's "default" values chosen when you say customize.

A shift kit would just make the trans bang through the gears. Probably going to give you the same feeling you are feeling now. Most transmissions are built to have slippage so that the trans shifts smoother... shift kits create firmer shifts. Automatics...

As far as the tuner, well you got me there! I'm an OBD I kinda guy!
