loaded latest 275 verision today, bad results

I got a v4 i guess? of the 275 in my email a few months ago and finally got around to loading it today because the version I had been running was fine. It seemed to be a little louder which I liked and blew a little more smoke. What I didn't liek was that the tranny got lost A LOT, i got turbo farts (going back through the turbo) A LOT, and I didn't like how when i let off the skinny petal i'm thrown forward. After about 1-2 hours worth of driving i decided that I felt like i was going to break something and parked at the mall and switched back to the old version which these things occur a lot less frequently.

Did I just get a bad tune revision? and if anyone from spartan reads this are you going to make a tune that lopes in the future? I want my truck to lope soooooooo bad

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

I'm running the 275v2 and as of late it seems the tranny has been getting lost, so I reloaded it without switching back to stock, still seemed lost at times, so I finally returned it to stock, then loaded the 275v2 again and it seems to be a little better, but still lost at times. I don't like it.
