Have them update the PCM to the latest calibration using IDS version 74.02 (this is the current latest version), clear the adaptive tables and perform an adaptive drive cycle. If they tell you they cannot do this, inform them that verifying that the PCM is at the latest calibration is a part of base transmission diagnosis

The transmission will behave based on driving conditions and driver input. If the vehicle tows a trailer or is driven aggressively, this will cause it to shift harsh

I've heard that 04-06 were the only ones affected and 07+ are fine. Most of the plug cases I hear of are 04-05s though. It's weird though my dad 05 5.4 got it's first and only plug change at 200k and they had zero issues.
