Default New shifter slides out of gear? Pro5.0 and TDP lvl4

2 weeks ago I installed my brand new TDP Level 4 T56 :-) It shifted perfectly fine with the worn to pieces B&M Ripper that I had in there. I just got a Pro5.0 installed yesterday and sometimes it doesn't stay in 3rd/4th while shifting.

I thought it might have been the stops on the shifter being too close so I ripped everything out again and backed the bolts off more. On the way to work it backed out of 4th on me again once (but only once). It kind of looked like it went into the gear and then the shifter like slowly slid out of place.

Could this be because it's just brand new? Kind of weird that it was only a 3/4 problem and hasn't done it on another gear yet.

It even pushes it out of 4th gear moving the stick up wards?

Thats what it appeared to do over maybe a second and a half. I'll see if it happens again on the ride home and try to really look at it. It happened so quickly it's hard to say if it was really in and then out, or never in at all. It seems weird that it was only after the 5.0 went in.

It's not doing any sort of violent kick out and grind like it used to do before TDP fixed me up. It seems it almost never went in. I put the stick where it's supposed to go (or at least I think), but then when I clutch out it's just in neutral. I'm going to try keeping a firm hold on the stick, I might just be being lazy.

Not yet, I only had time to back the shifter stops away and try again. I ran out of daylight and had a pissed off wife.
