weird tranny issue

im not sure if its the tranny or if its the software problem or a feature but it never hurts to ask. it usually happens when i drive around 20-30 mph and i need to accelerate rapidly, when i push the accelerator almost all the way sometimes engine revs almost to 5k but the car does not accelerate, i have to release the accelerator, let the rpms drop and do it again, more slowly this time, then the accelerates. it almost feels like the torque converter is slipping....
any of you guys experienced this issue?

i had 2out of these 3 TSBs done on my tranny, one regarding the AC and TC and the other one was just the tranny programming one. i dont have the drone noise problem so that one was not done. but the other 2 were. still the same thing. its either slipping or not locking

The one with the drone does change when the TC locks up,and others on here had it done with good results.I also had the 2 TSBs you had done,and so far tranny seems good.Plus you should have lifetime warranty on your KK if there is another problem.
