triple dog shifting issues

Can I get some input on erratic shifting and my truck "falling on it's face" after installing a triple dog programmer??
Fairly new to this diesel programming stuff.
Only been on the truck about 3-4 days and I'm wondering if it's still 'learning'?

2007 OBS LBZ CC LWB 4x4

I have read numerous posts about programmers and the triple dog seems to be better on the fords and dodges but it's not so compatible with the Duramaxes. Is that really the case and do I need to invest in another brand of tuner?

Any help is appreciated.

thanks

Waldoze

I used to have a bully dog, didn't shift too bad, but did you do the relearn procedure? That helps no matter what tuner you have.

Yeah no biggie; it's easy to do the re-learn, plus you get to drive your truck

I picked up a bully dog power pup , I have been running a 50tow tune getting 20mpg and can beat a mustang at a stoplight. The shifting is a ittle firm but the tranny has had work done. I never did a relearn.

By 300 miles it should b shifting ok. U might b feeling the defuel. On the extreme tune it's quite drastic. Don't try the crazy larry on the DMAX, it doesnt like it. I ran the extreme tune for a long time, even towed with it. It's a good starter programmer. Not sure if it has a relearn like ppe though. Or quick learn whatever it's called. My truck made 400hp and 750lbs ft with a bully dog, CIA, shim kit and exhaust. Ppe was much better than bully dog and efi live is better than sliced bread.
