Default 2 Speed tranny Un-Adjusting

I have an RS4 3, and just installed a 2 speed tranny on it. It works well For about 4-5 tanks of fuel then it doesn't Shift anymore i end up having to make the shift points shorter so it shifts again. there's 2 springs you get with the 2 speed tranny, A black and a silver one, the black one is supposed to be for higher performance engines and Vice Versa for the silver one, I have a T 3.0 so i figured I would use the black one?
Any tips on how to fix this issue? or if you think maybe i should just install the silver spring?

Thanks,
Matt

the t3.0 isnt really a high performance engine, may want to try the silver spring.
