The reason I ask is because you'll need upgrades in the transmission if you want to get a little more powerful. Manual owners have it easier, they can upgrade their clutch. You automatic guys have it a little rougher, you can put some power thru the stock setup, but a hair too much and hair too often, and you'll be looking at an unexpected and sudden repair bill. Better to budget ahead and get it done right.
I totally agree with Pat@BD too, pull the tuner out of the system and see if the problem goes away. Also check all connections and make sure there's no corrosion on the harness plugs and stuff while you're at it. Sometimes it can be a simple bad connection, sometimes it can be a simple chafed/broken wire, sometimes it can really mean an expensive repair.
