Weird converter locking issue

Under moderate to heavy acceleration, my truck will run through the gears, but when it comes to shift and lock the converter, it will try to lock, come unlocked, and then lock back up. The problem is that one it definitely seems like something is wrong and two if i ever get in a race im gonna get fried because of it. I checked my TQSLIP and it was fine while the converter was locked, so I guess the problem is just getting it locked?

Anyone know what the problem would be?

Running the 275 (not the new update files)

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

Mine has always done it. Thats why I drive it nice. I dont think it was hurting anything. Just stacking the house in my favor, so I didnt get a surprise repair bill. so much for being responsible. Was going to get a suncoast this spring anyway.

Lets just say not quite stock.

Well know that we know its not an isolated incident, wonder if someone can help us figure out what's causing it.

Job 1 TCM? If so, thats the culprit....update to the strategy flash and it goes away. Did for me. The most recent Job 1 trans tunes are awesome.
