tranny problems with chip

i have a 04 F350 Harley Davidson edition with the 6.0. I just put a edge programmer in it and it works great except when i have it in level 5 (which is the highest setting) i get real bad slipping in my tranny. I have tried it with overdrive off and even in the tow/haul mode. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

When you exceed the capacities of the components by introducing power adders, these things happen. Other brands of "chips" are less harsh on the trans.

SELL THAT EDGE!! They are KNOWN for transmission damage.

The 6.0L needs a flash programmer that can properly control the transmission. I had an SCT Xcal2 when I had my 6.0L. No trans issues with it at all.
